This delicately balanced design story artfully blends the raw beauty of winter with the warming notes of spring.

A bedroom with a large window fitted with a Voile Roman blind in Swirl Dusk

Relaxing retreat

Like tiny snowdrops pushing through the frozen ground, this soft and subtle story is finely poised – not quite free of the icy grip of winter, but not yet ready to embrace the full flourish of spring. Misty morning greys, and swirling prints create an ethereal and transient look. Accessories have an organic feel, with rough surfaces and imperfect shapes that illuminate the maker’s craft. Wood surfaces are natural and untreated or polished to highlight the natural beauty of the grain. Textiles in linen, wool and semi-sheer fabrics are layered up to create a light but cosy atmosphere for hibernating away.

Perfectly imperfect

Create an away-from-it-all rustic look with bare floorboards, layered with vintage rugs in fade-out shades. Creamy neutrals and barely there pink hues bring subtle warmth, while rich amber adds heat and depth. In this gorgeous bedroom we’ve used wicker baskets and ladder storage to enhance the rustic feel, with hand-knitted throws, sheepskin rugs and plush cushions casually layered around the room for a textural, undone feel.

Sleek and stylish

Simple, smooth and stylish, grey blinds are an increasingly popular choice for interior design styles and we don’t see this trend going out of fashion anytime soon. In this cool work space, the icy grey Roller blind meets rough and raw natural surfaces combined with luxe black details. A modern alternative to classic neutrals such as cream that may seem a little more old-fashioned now, grey is the perfect choice if you are looking to pair versatility with contemporary style.

Spring awakening

Flexible light control is key to this brink-of-spring look. As the days get longer, it’s important to allow as much light into the home as possible, while at the same time incorporating enough cosiness to snuggle up until the warmer weather arrives. In this elegant living room, pale blue café style shutters provide immediate privacy, light and temperature control, but at the same time allow lots of sunlight into the room above eye level. Piles of plush cushions on the peachy sofa finish the fresh and inviting feel. 

Brilliant blue

Celebrate all things natural with fresh floral displays and egg-speckled ceramics in tonal shades of sky blue, turquoise and indigo. In this sunny dining room, faux silk Roman blinds embroidered with dewy drops of pale blue embroidered thread cascade along the wide window, bouncing dappled light around the room while also providing a layer of textured warmth to keep off the winter chill.
