We’ve been getting a lot of snaps from you on Instagram and Twitter recently and we noticed that an incredible amount of them featured the same kind of blinds- white wooden ones. Some real wood, some faux wood, some with tapes. (Have a click on those lovely links and you’ll be able to see just what’s on offer!)
But what surprised us the most was how no two window felt the same. Other than the ones where you sent us multiple snaps of the same window of course.
So that got us thinking, how are you styling your windows? After all, who doesn’t want to be inspired by people just like themselves? We’ve picked a few of our favourites from Instagram…
We love how Victoria has really thought about the kerb appeal with this one. The Alabaster and Vanilla faux wood blinds are sympathetic to the look of the property and help it fit in perfectly with it’s surrounding.
Louise has kitted out not one, but two of her rooms with our white wooden blinds; the lounge and the nursery. Louise has kept the nursery neutral, choosing to show off textures instead. The blinds keeps with the simple theme of the room and won’t need to be changed as her little boy grows older.
Here Gem has created a cosy living room space with the help of layered textures. The tapes in the wooden blind help break up the large window, whilst the neutral curtains frame it. She’s stopped the window looking cluttered by paring back on the accessories. A simple candle in line with the hanging hearts is all the scheme needs.
Sometimes a new build home can feel stark and lacking in character, but Jessica has given her brand new kitchen a sweet country feel with the accessories. The tapes on the wooden blind and polka dot bin soften the look to stop it feeling too industrial.
What we love about this bedroom scheme is that it works together, without being too match-y. The blind works with the photo frames, whilst the darker aspects of the photos tie in nicely with the headboard and lamp base. It’s a powerful combination that feels serene and loving.
Our final scheme comes from Meg. Meg has opted for the country chic look too, but in a totally different way. The slats of the blind keep in with the sleekness of the cabinetry. We love the accents of green that tie in nicely with the dark wood countertop and crisp white walls.
