With the summer of sport kicking off this week, excitement is mounting. Whether or not you’re a football fan, there’s no escaping a certain event that will soon be taking place in Brazil. On Thursday 12 June, the hotly anticipated tournament finally begins.
Those who love the beautiful game may have already decorated their homes ahead of the World Cup. Flag motifs are everywhere right now – from bunting to paper cups. These accessories are fun, but only last for a short while.
For a makeover that will stand the test of time long after the final game has been played, you could consider introducing a new colour palette to your décor. To help you choose your favourite, Kirsty Martin has picked out a few key players from our squad of wonderful window dressings.
“For a really vibrant effect, be inspired by sizzling South American shades. Bright blues, greens and yellows have a bold Brazilian feel. Here, our classic white shutters provide a striking contrast to the vivid surroundings.
“And for a lovely lush look, how about taking inspiration from the pitch itself? Light greens have a lovely natural inspired appearance, which will be sure to refresh your décor. Our light green Venetian blinds are just one stylish example.
“Or if vivid tones aren’t to your taste, you could go for an elegant monochrome scheme instead. A special ball has been designed to commemorate the 2014 World Cup, but traditionally these were black and white. White Roller blinds, like below, can look stunning set against the dark walls.
“Our Kick Off Digital blind plays upon the same theme. The print is a fantastic choice for a child’s bedroom or playroom, but will also appeal to grown up football fanatics.”
Right now, we’re offering you the chance to score a digitally printed Roller blind featuring your very own sporting photo. To enter, simply visit our website and share the competition by hitting the Twitter, Facebook or Google+ buttons on the page. Good luck!
