New Year: New Blinds
January is the month for change, and with this often comes a desire for a fresh start. If you’re looking to update your home this year, we’re here to help, with a rundown of the latest blind trends for the upcoming year to get you inspired and help kickstart your decorating.
This year’s natural colour scheme takes a more dramatic turn, with dark moss greens and deep ocean navy blues being used as centre stage and beiges and clay colours being used as contrast to lighten the space and create crisp lines in the home. The key to this look is to keep the decor feeling contemporary, sticking with block colours and fuss-free designs to create a home that feels luxurious. In keeping with the natural theme, wooden blinds make the perfect accompaniment – opt for lighter beach coloured woods or glossed white wooden blinds to play on a sea theme and optimise the feeling of light coming from your windows.
If you want to brighten up your home this year, the acid pop theme will certainly pack a punch. Electric shades of pinks, blue, yellow and green will really make an impact on the room, and the intensity of this style means that you don’t have to commit to a complete decor overhaul to really make a change to your home. Key pieces of acid brightness will inject fun into an otherwise neutral room, and something as simple as the addition of a brightly coloured roller blind will bring your room right on trend.
Metallic silvers and jewel-toned golds are making a splash this year, working well as a stand-alone theme or alongside colours such as deep reds to create a regal decor worthy of the Queen herself. When introducing this theme to your home, an aluminium twist/vision or Venetian blind is a simple and low-key piece to kickstart the decor.
For a more relaxing and subtle home style, muted pastels could be the decor choice for you. Pale vanilla whites, barely there yellows and smoky blues are being used in full force this year to create a home so soft you can’t help back but sink back into and relax. This colour theme should be paired with plenty of soft and luxurious furnishings and feminine floral prints to really help cocoon you. We think a Roman blind is the perfect choice for this decor as the layers of fabric produce a soft and cosy feel perfectly in line with the aims of the trend.
