Choosing Designs to Suit your Style
Your home says a lot about your style.
Everything – from how you arrange the pictures on the wall, to the way you coordinate carpets and furniture – correlates to who you are and how you want others to perceive you.
Throwing bright colours on the wall, for instance, might mean you’re a little eccentric – whereas a simple and tactile rug communicates an understated sophistication. And this shouldn’t be any different for window furnishings.
Windows are an architectural feature, so it makes sense to dress them up. But how can you choose designs that match your personality while answering your shading problems?
Form follows function
When selecting the right window furnishings, aim to achieve a more cohesive look – no matter the styling.
Consider orientation, privacy and function – remembering that whatever is on the outside can be used artistically on the inside – bringing colours and shades into a space that otherwise wouldn’t receive them.
Create the feel of some far-flung holiday destination with the addition of plantation shutters.
Both stylish and practical, our shutters are designed for control. The addition of the horizontal shutter blades adds a timeless feature that works in every room – from the dining room to the bedroom.
If you can’t quite decide what window furnishings suit your style, roller blinds are a simple and cost-effective solution.
Available in a wide range of materials that include block-out, sheer and light filtering fabrics – they’re designed to be unobtrusive to your style while balancing views, controlling light and improving privacy.
When selecting curtains, all six principles of design should come into play – balance, proximity, alignment, repetition, contrast and space.
The beauty of installing curtains is that they can take the attention away from other elements in the room or they can be the centrepiece. Use colour, size and texture to your advantage, and create a beautiful space that tells the story of your home.
