Last month we took a good hard look at some of our stylish Web-Blinds customers. And because we’ve so many, we’ve decided to make a series. So here are 5 more design lessons we can learn from the coolest, most innovative amateur designers. (That’s our customers FYI.)
1. Layer different blinds
Different blinds do different things, so when Sally layered a Wooden blind with a Roman, she was getting the best of both worlds. Slats to keep prying eyes out; a Roman for a beautifully pulled together finish. Smart stuff.
2. Blinds aren’t just for houses
When we think of blinds, we probably think of the bay window in our front room or the Roller blind in our bathroom. But what about the self build in the garden? Made-to-measure blinds are perfect for the job, especially when the windows are unusually slim in the case of Martin. And his Vertical blinds help as the sun moves around during the day.
3. Children’s rooms don’t have to be childish
Decorating a child’s room can be tricky. But a classy kid’s room does exist – Sarah proves it. She’s chosen washed out shades of beige and cream and crisp white walls, and added a dash of colour with a fun Roller blind from us. We love.
4. Grey is dramatically gorgeous
Long gone are the days when grey reminded us of a dismal day. Now it’s the coolest neutral and one that works well in a whole host of settings. Susan sported hers in a spare bedroom – where the dramatic shade helps to keep the vintage scheme pretty without being twee.
5. Keep things simple in shared rooms
Lots of us with brothers and sisters will know the highs and lows of sharing a bedroom. Colin made the space work for both of his little ones by keeping it simple. Plain white walls and a plain blackout Roller blind create a blank canvas for fun-filled bedding and personal items.
