This month's feature is Winter
During Winter, rather than simply cocooning yourself in winter woollens and battening down the hatches to wait for warmer climbs, changing the atmosphere of your home or just a single room can make a big difference.
We all know that the dull, grey light of winter affects our moods and tends to make us feel lethargic, so why not harness the vibrancy of summer and keep it switched on all year round? Where curtains frame a window and block out daylight, blinds can be used to alter the light of a room entirely, whether open or closed.
A bright, warm toned roller blind for example, will transform the grey light of a miserable Winter’s day to a bright, sunny glow in your living space. You don’t need to completely change your décor, simply pick out one of the warmer tones in your chosen palette and enhance it for your blinds, remembering to keep it bright.
Alternatively, choose the material for your blinds in accordance with your favourite aspects of summer. For example, pick out a texture, pattern or colour which reminds you of Summer holidays, family bike rides or picnics in the sun. Something as simple as a bright cream material with a weave, which reminds you of deckchairs in your favourite spot will trigger the memory of Summer and surround you with that carefree holiday feeling!
If the lack of light in the winter months gets you down, try a simple, pale blind which will reflect light and give the impression of a brighter space. This will also help you make the most of electric lights in the evenings. Pale colours also help to make your living space appear larger, which is particularly handy if staying indoors tends to make you feel claustrophobic.
It’s a small change, but it will make a significant difference to your Winter!
