Why framing your view is essential for autumn

Red Roman blind

There’s a chill in the morning air. The evenings are drawing in. Hedgerows and bushes are alive with berries. Autumn has arrived.

Among the season’s changes is the switch from fresh green foliage on the branches to a fall of gold, orange and red leaves. It’s an awe-inspiring transition. And one that can influence interiors.

But rather than telling you how to give your whole home an autumnal look, this blog post looks at making more of the gorgeous views from the window that many are enjoying right now.

Frame your view with stunning new window dressings and you’ll create an attractive feature that draws all eyes to the wonders outside.

Given the richness of autumn, you’d be right to let the colours and textures of the natural world inspire your choice.

You’d be right to choose one of our beautiful Roman blinds.

Go for a style that brings together touches of the season. Our Audley Red Roman blind is very much of the moment and even features a stunning leaf motif.

Add some natural touches to your window. Bring a bit of the outside in: get a little crafty and create a feature to sit on the ledge or hang from the frame.

A simple autumnal garland can be made from tying dried leaves to twine. Or you can embellish it with cones and ribbons. Dried flowers in a vase also look great.

Cleaning the windows is always a good move. Especially at this time of year when you want to make more of the view and take in as much natural light as possible.

This is an easy chore and it only takes minutes to do a good job.

For a streak-free finish, spray on a special cleaner and wipe clean with a squeegee. Or go old school and use a mix of two tablespoons of white vinegar or lemon juice and a gallon of water, some newspaper and a bit of elbow grease.
