If the temperature outside is getting you down this winter, then turn up the heat inside by choosing new blinds, curtains or shutters and giving your interior an upliftingly snug new style.
Winter-proof your home with a stylish new blind in a warming tone, pick curtains in a cosy fabric or go for shutters and get the season’s hottest look.
Eye-popping and vibrant, bright colour combinations fly in the face of muted palettes and concerns about the economy! It’s time to stand out from the crowd and wake up your senses with cobalt blue, tangerine, lime, coral and fuschia pink, with ideally at least two of them clashing!
Grey is the new beige
It’s been a strong colour in fashion for some time and whenever a shade steals a march on the high street, it’s inevitable that it also makes its way onto the interiors scene. Grey is a neutral tone that works just as well in both traditional and contemporary homes, but this year expect to see it teamed with intense colour combinations like teal and shocking pink.
With last year’s wave of patriotism still influencing interior style, now is a great time to show your excitement about what it means to be British. So go loud, proud and patriotic with a Union Jack Roller blind or a classic combination of red, white and blue.
Rise and shine
Prepare for a break-out of Magpie Syndrome as a desire for all things shiny grips the nation. But we’re not talking bold as brass - metallics this year are softer and more subtle, so consider gold and silver, pewter and bronze for an individual take on the trend.
