How to – add summer stripes to your home

As the weather gets warmer and we’re starting to think of the holidays, we’re reminded that summer and stripes go together like strawberries and cream. It’s all about bright colours – think deckchairs for inspiration  – and we’ll show you how to stay on the straight and narrow in your home… Take a look at our stunning selection, or scroll to the bottom for the lowdown at a glance – perfect with a summer tipple in hand!

Add a pop of red

So the name of this one gives things away – our Red Deckchair Roman blind features stylish red, grey and white stripes for a funky effect. It’s perfect for adding a pop of colour to a white or neutral room. And if you’re looking for a blackout blind perfect for a bedroom, why not add a blackout lining for a sound night’s sleep?

Keep it chunky

For a bold effect, pick thicker stripes. The striking red of our Stately Terracotta Roman blind has a regal feel when teamed with the pretty gold. So while it’s the perfect summer stripe design for the warmer months, it also has a stunning cosy effect in the winter.

Add colour with summer stripes

They don’t come much cheerier than our Mallow Spice Roller blind. It’s bright and exciting, and we reckon it’s just the thing for a seaside inspired bedroom – simply add a bucket and spade, and you’ll feel like you’re there!

Add some excitement to your interior

Lots of us love the thrill of loop-the-loops in the summer holidays. Our Theme Park Roman blind is bright and bold, and will definitely add a touch of excitement to your interior. It’s perfect for anywhere right from traditional schemes to kids bedrooms.

Mix things up with a horizontal stripe

While deckchairs might be dominated by vertical stripes, another summer staple, the Breton shirt, has its stripes firmly in the horizontal camp.  Our Ebb Rose Pleated blind is bright and the neat design means it’s a smart choice for any room of the home.
