Get Daring With Bold Prints

June 29, 2012

How many homes have you visited which follow the traditional design scheme?  Popular window covering hues tend to be white, off white or beige in order to create a coveted neutral effect which will match with any furnishings placed in the room.  Sometimes only a little bit of change can make a big difference in your over all interior décor.  If you are bored with the look of your space but on a budget, and want to stand out a little from the crowd, why not explore one of the many exciting new patterned blind options available at Made to Measure Blinds?

For those of you still not sure if you can make a dramatic change, consider that a neutral coloured environment actually lends itself quite well to a vibrant colour and pattern on a window covering.   If the furnishings in the room also follow a similarly neutral palette, you can express yourself confidently with a bold pattern which can be complimented with accessories such as toss pillows or area rugs as accents. If you have decided to make a splash with a bold new patterned blind, consider the structure of the look you want to achieve.


Find a Blind

What kind of blind is ideal for your space?  Roller Blinds are a popular choice for most families as they are easy to use, clean and highly durable which is ideal for homes with small children.    Those looking for some drama and romantic flair opt for a luxurious Roman Blind which is available in classic solid print fabrics as well as select patterns.

If you are looking to solve an over lit room, Made to Measure Blinds has some unique options in Black Out Blinds including some creative patterned fabrics.   Choose Fern Charcoal to liven up any room or add interest.


Pattern Options

If you are redesigning with a contemporary theme in mind, consider the dramatic patterns in black and white such as Tamara Monochrome or the Floral Shadow Amber which is available in three fashionable hues.

Warm tones in the rich chocolate brown colour remain very popular with interior designers.   The colour of chocolate emits a comfortable and welcoming expression and works very well with most wall colours and virtually any floor finish. Karma Espresso is a very popular pattern at the moment with some of our young and fashion forward buyers.   For more of a subdued and understated look the Broderie Taupe pattern is a classic favourite.

If you are looking to add some whimsy or playful panache and break entirely from convention, explore daring blind patterns such as Tea For Two Jasmine which is a cheerful pattern well suited for a kitchen space.   Another brilliantly outgoing pattern is the Broderie Taupe. But if a classic romantic look is really what you are aiming for then consider the gorgeous texture of  Debut Autumn which is appropriate for more formal environments.

When it comes to window coverings there really are no limitations or conventions.  It is an affordable and fun way to liven up your home and give it a fresh new look on a reasonable budget.  Simply measure, order online and have your new blinds delivered to you with a twelve month guarantee from Made to Measure Blinds.
