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 coverings as opportunities to express creativity and personal style, you’ll be surprised at just how many options there are.

Here are five of our favourite ways to get creative with your blinds.

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, visual interest and atmosphere to your space. Lush, heavier fabric blinds such as curtains create a luxurious look with a warm and cosy vibe. Choose from custom made curtains in your choice of silk, velvet, faux silk, linen and mid-weight cotton fabric for something that’s a little different.

For other areas of the home that aren’t suitable for curtains (hello, kitchens and bathrooms), go for a blind in a contrasting, warmer texture for a luxe feel.


Metallics

Metallics aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, but they can sure make a bold statement in your home. By incorporating metallic fabrics into your interior design, you can liven up any room without overpowering it. We recommend sticking to soft metallics with base neutrals of white, cream and greys to create a cosy yet ultra-modern look.

For example, think flowing curtains in soft gold to bring opulence and luxury to a master bedroom!


Patterns

Patterns are an easy way to inject your personality into your home. Choose from blinds with a striking geometric pattern, or from our range of wallpaper that features a variety of patterns ranging from the bold to the subtle.

For large panels of funky fabrics, look no further than our panel blinds. Panel blinds are most commonly used as a window covering for sliding glass doors, patio doors, or French doors. These stylish window coverings can also be mounted on the ceiling to act as a room divider.


Boho

For those who don’t believe in ‘classic’ colours and think that design rules were made to be broken, this one’s for you! If you love the dreamy look of boho, go for soft sheers to complement blinds or curtains. If you’re starting from scratch, choose flowing fabrics in natural colours to achieve this look.

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 walls make the windows the focus. Think bright, playful, saturated hues of yellow, teal and orange for maximum wow factor. Our vertical blinds and roller blinds are styles that offer the most colour options, ranging from classic colours to bold and bright hues like greens, pinks and blues.
