From colourful Spanish patterns to minimalist Asian layouts, more and more homeowners are taking inspiration from international cultures to use for their own décor. Whether you want to adopt an existing design trend, or would rather create your own with memories from your travels, there are a plethora of options available to you.
Blinds are a simple, cost-effective way of transforming the look of your home, without having to pay a hefty price tag. Here, we will discuss how clever use of blinds can add a touch of global culture to your home this summer.
The romantic feel of Mediterranean style will evoke memories of crystal clear waters, white sands and beautiful sunsets. Transport yourself to an exotic destination from the comfort of your own home this summer by injecting cultural style from around the world into your décor.
Using blinds with bold colours and floral, geometric patterns can transform your home into a Spanish hacienda! Most Spanish houses have roller blinds – also known as persianas – fitted to their windows, so why not use this type of blind in a vibrant colour or print for your home, too?
At Kingston Blinds Direct, the golden colour of our Midnight Acid roller blind is reminiscent of the Spanish summer sun and will instantly brighten up any room for a warm, welcoming look.
Alternatively, wooden Venetian blinds can create the rustic, natural look of a Spanish villa, whilst offering exceptional light and privacy control.
Your house should be a tranquil, relaxing space where you can escape from the stresses of the outside world and relax. In an age when most people lead hectic, fast-paced lifestyles, Asian-inspired interiors are a great way of creating a laid-back, serene atmosphere in the home.
