Blind trends – Summer 2014
With the summer sun streaming through your home, this season is the ideal time to get creative and revamp your home. There are some inspiring interior design trends which cover any size budget, and there are plenty of stylish items available which can help give your home a fresh new look. This article will serve to explain the main blind trends which are popular this summer, with the aim of helping you renovate the design of your room in the most cost-effective and trouble-free way possible.
Firstly, if you are searching for a bold look, angular geometric patterns are the ideal choice for you. Combine your favourite bright colours with pale neutrals such as white and grey to get a contrasting look which will complement the rest of the room. Why not try taking the plunge and choose blocks of neon colours?
Using a vivid palette to create sharp, angular shapes across a neutral background will work exceptionally well in creating a stylish and bright room without being too garish. Alternatively, if you’re feeling brave you could even use your bright shades as the main backdrop of your blind.
Try creating a calmer, more subdued atmosphere by using a palette of earthy red, yellows and browns for a Moroccan colour scheme. Accentuate this theme by adding accents of tribal patterns to create a warm, inviting tone throughout the room.
A calming nautical theme is a popular design this summer, drawing on softer colours such as pale blues, sandy beiges and breezy light greys, reminiscent of your favourite seaside getaway. Alternatively, mix navy with other colours such as white, pastel blue and red to highlight the nautical theme – you could even try adding stripes and a few gold accents to complete the look. From your living room to bathroom, this coastal design suits all spaces throughout your home, creating light and airy spaces.
Floral patterns are another popular summer print, bringing the flourishing outside world into your home during the spring and summer seasons and brightening up your home during the winter. This design is all about being big and bold, choosing bright colours such as pink and red to transform the room. You could even mix big floral prints with smaller ones to give a contrasting look.
For a touch of glamour, the metallic trend is the ideal option for you. Blinds with a neutral backdrop and shimmers of gold or copper will transform your room into a space filled with character and charm.
If bold colours and prints are too extravagant for your taste, try using a pale palette which delivers on style while not overbearing the room. Contrary to belief, white does not need to be clinical or dull and can create a homely, modern feel throughout a room.
A combination of different shades of pink can brighten up any room, exuding femininity and warmth. Try adding a few soft tones of pink along with pastel purples for a summery, youthful feel. Another effective way of bringing summer into your home is by using vibrant yellow shades combined with neutral colours for a stylish contrast.
