We’re always busy scouring the world for great designs to turn into blinds – our head of design is one well-travelled lady. Just in time for summer she’s back with an influx of jaw-dropping new fabrics for you to enjoy.
Among them is a collection of beautifully eclectic designs. However, as much as we might love a particular style, we all know patterns can be scary. So, how do we shoehorn in these gorgeous blinds and make them feel right at home?
Creating the Eclectic Look
The eclectic look might seem thrown together but it’s actually a case of carefully curating standout pieces and pairing them with contrasting elements. This Swazi roman blind is the standout pattern and contrasts perfectly with modern furniture and finishes.
Eclectic definitely means mixing styles but you don’t want things to feel cluttered. Three is the magic number, just like with this Marrakesh roller blind. The Japanese style futon, the modern, exposed brickwork and the ethnic pattern make the perfect combination of styles. The fabric is clearly the star of the show and the other pieces play supporting roles, this is the ideal balance.
Chuck in a neutral background and let your statement patterns sing! This Lattice roller blind has a dominant pattern so there’s no need to create confusion with even more pattern on the wall. Just a simple grey, a pale blue or your standard neutrals will do the job nicely.
Look for ethnic styles that move you and go with it. Although you don’t want to go crazy creating your eclectic look, it’s still about having fun and finding pieces that make you go ‘wow’. We love this Sahara roman blind for that very reason. So relax, go wild and express yourself.
Right now all of these gorgeous designs benefit from a FREE blackout lining to keep the sun at bay. What could be more perfect as the summer rolls around?
