Now that Valentine’s Day has been and gone, thoughts turn to the next big event on the horizon – the arrival of spring. After all the wet and gloomy weather that we’ve experienced, the idea of crisp sunny mornings and flowers bursting into bloom is an appealing one.
Of course the official start of the season is still over a month away, but it’s never too early to inject a splash of spring style into your home. Classic florals are always popular around this time of year, but if you fancy something a little different, then there are lots of different avenues to explore.
The catwalks are always a fantastic source of inspiration, as the outfits on display here increasingly influence interior fashions. And 2014’s key trends are wonderfully diverse, from moody monochrome hues to pretty pastels and patterns full of Eastern promise.
Black and white tones never seem to go out of fashion, but this season the sleek colour palette featured in countless shows. As well as being bang on-trend, monochrome schemes have a timeless look that will continue to dazzle in your home over the coming months and years. For a contemporary twist on traditional floral prints, this Minstrel White fabric from our white Vertical blinds collection is a brilliant choice.
Alternatively, if monochrome isn’t your cup of tea, how about trying a few fondant fancies instead? Sugary shades have a lovely retro appeal. Take your pick from Parma violets, lemon yellows and mint greens. As the name suggests, this Marshmallow Pink fabric in our pink Roller blind selection complements the candy shop theme perfectly. A pretty shaped hem provides a decorative finishing touch.
Or, if you’re fed up with stormy skies and rain, why not add a hint of Eastern-inspired elegance to your rooms? Exotic designs bring to mind far flung destinations and warmer climates, while rich jewel-like colours create a luxurious impression. The stylish swirls in this Plum Crumble Roman blind, available in our purple Roman blinds category, have a beautifully bohemian feel.
