Super soft velvets create a naturally cosy feel, while shimmering faux-silks bring a sense of refined elegance. Choose linen-look prints and textured plains to add a subtle wash of colour, or mix up your look for a truly eclectic feel.

Fresh as a daisy

Emphasise a light and airy room with faux-silk Roman blinds in Serenity Glacier. The soft sheen reflects the natural light for an interior so bright, it glows. In this gorgeous dining room, the polished floor and white chairs add to the pure aesthetic, while pops of aqua and sunny yellow add a zesty freshness. Rustic dining chairs and a vase of fresh wildflowers lend a relaxed and informal feel.

Storm in a teacup

Create a bedroom scheme that makes you crave to be indoors, with a sumptuously snug velvet Mirage Smoke Roman blind teamed with cosy Opulence Smoke curtains. Accentuate the stormy grey hues with deep teal accessories for a look that’s coolly elegant and sea spray fresh. Cushion covers in complementary prints from the collection finish the stay-in-bed all day look.

Herb garden

Create a spring fresh scheme with the cool sage hues of Echo Mist curtains. This broken stripe print is subtle enough for even the widest of windows, and is the perfect shade for bringing together your home and garden. For this stylish dining room, we’ve emphasised the outdoors feel with lots of lush greenery and simple wooden furniture, evocative of alfresco living.

Under the sea

Design a deeply dramatic scheme by picking up on the darkest hues in the colour palette. We’ve created a sense of decadent luxury in this classic bathroom, by painting the dividing doors in a rich aquamarine shade and picking out elegant brass fittings to add shine. The veining on the marble bath echoes the fluidity of the bubbles in the Reflection Ocean Roman blind, while the smooth surfaces and high gloss finish bring a sense of serenity and calm.

Dare to go nude

For an ultra-chic look, choose shimmering faux-silk in barely there nude pink hues. Here we’ve teamed Serenity Blush curtains with a Mineral Blush Roman blind for a stylish and snug feel. Warm latte walls and a plush velvet buttoned headboard add to the boutique feel, with rose gold accessories for a luxe finish.
