Getting Creative: How To Use Colour and Pattern in your Window Treatments

Newsflash: Blinds don’t have to be drab and boring! When you start thinking of window dressings as opportunities to express creativity and personal style, the sky’s the limit with how loud you can go. Here are five of our favourite ways to get creative with your blinds that are bang-on trend in 2017!

Getting Creative: How To Use Colour and Pattern in your Window Treatments

Why choose patterns and colours

Contrasting textures

Using multiple layers of contrasting textures adds sophisticated style, interest and atmosphere to your space. Lush, heavier fabric blinds create a luxurious look with a warm and cosy vibe. In a bathroom with stone or tile, go for a blind in a contrasting, warmer texture for a luxe feel.


Metallics are big in home décor this year, so incorporating metallic fabrics into your window dressings is a stylish and creative take on the trend. Stick to soft metallics with base neutrals of white, cream and greys to create a cosy yet ultra-modern look. Think flowing curtains in a soft gold to bring opulence and luxury to a master bedroom.


It doesn’t get much more on-trend than blinds with a stunning, head-turning geometric pattern. For total up-to-the-minute style, choose a micro-pattern with a high-contrast colour combination. Massive style points.


Exploding back on the scene of late (so much so that we wrote a recent blog about it!) boho decor is big in 2017, and it’s all about boho blinds. Go for dreamy sheers to compliment blinds or curtains, and choose flowing fabrics in natural colours for ultimate boho style.

Colour blocking

This is no time to be afraid of colour; bold, playful hues are the perfect way to inject life, energy and vibrancy into your space. Big blocks of colour against neutral, complimentary walls make windows the focus. Think bright, playful, saturated hues of yellow, teal and orange for maximum wow factor.
