Coastal Couture For Your Home

Monday, April 27th, 2015

After a long winter and a rainy, cool spring, we can’t welcome summer into our homes soon enough. Here’s how to create an on-trend coastal theme that will bring the very best of the seaside indoors, from nautical blues and seaside stripes, to ice cream sundae shades good enough to eat.

Summer Blues
Classic blue installs calm, coolness and harmony. Fresh and clean shades of scuba blue and aquamarine lend themselves effortlessly to windows featuring pretty prints and bold seaside stripes. Sail into summer with these made-to-measure Roman blinds.

Under the sea – blissful bathrooms
Marine tones of aqua and lucite green are perfect for bathrooms. Give your bathroom a new seasonal look and feel by adding a bright colour to the window and updating with matching coloured towels, summery-scented soaps and other small accessories to the bathroom. Achieve the looks below with made-to-measure roller blinds or venetian blinds.

Seaside Stripes
Exchanging heavy fabrics for breezier ones is a quick way to lighten up any room for the summer months, take down curtains and replace them with traditional British seaside deckchair and rock inspired stripes.


Ice cream sundae shades that look good enough to eat will brighten your home. Tasty yet tasteful shades of strawberry ice, creamy yellows and mint green could be the final topping to a summer look at home, achieved with window blinds and coordinating accent colours.


Creating nostalgic echoes of fluffy, beachside candyfloss, our sugary range of pinks are soft and quirky. Though nostalgically childish, pinks can add real depth and style to home interiors, lifting neutral and natural finishes, such as white-washed wood, as seen below with Apollo’s Rose Print and Lipstick Pink rollers. Also below our candyfloss pink kids’ roller blind, pink vertical blind and pink polka dot roller fabric.
