Thursday, November 5th, 2015

It’s the colour everyone’s talking about, Dulux’s Cherished Gold* and here’s how to achieve
the look in your home with made-to-measure blinds.

Apollo

Twilight blinds featuring a band of gold and a sheer gold fabric stripe are a new type of window
blind to introduce Cherished Gold into homes.  The blinds have alternating stripes of sheer and
solid (blackout option) fabric that can be positioned to create a total block of colour or the
impression of a striped design that also allows light to flood into the room.
Prices start at £105 for a 600mm x 600mm made-to-measure Twilight Elegance Roller blind.

areas alike.  Prices start at £65 for a 610mm x 610mm made-to-measure Roller blind.

will have sunlight bouncing off them to give a fabulous colour effect – not forgetting the great
privacy and light control options. Prices start from £70 for a made-to–measure vertical blind.

The Perfect Accompaniment To Cherished Gold – fresh pastels

Dulux recommends pairing Cherished Gold with ‘fresh pastels’ and ‘rich jewel tones’.
