If you’re crazy for colour and partial to pattern, you’ll love the bold prints and vibrant hues in our stunning collections. And if you want to be braver but don’t know how, we’re here to help you get it right.

Bold pattern

Sometimes a burst of bold pattern is all you need to give your décor a lift.

So many people forget to include window treatments when they’re planning a new look, when in fact, windows take up a huge amount of space within your room, and are an ideal canvas for you to express your creativity.

The only rule with bold pattern is to make sure the print you choose picks up one or more colours from the room.

Bold architecture

If your home has bold architectural features, then your windows dressings should ideally reflect the look and feel of the space.

This smart side extension has an industrial aesthetic, with exposed steel and polished concrete. 

Our innovative Day and Night Roller blinds mirror these strong architectural features, and because they come with the option of motorised controls, these smart blinds also echo the modernity of the space.

Bold décor

Here’s a great example of a room where all of the design elements have been carefully considered to achieve a cohesive look.

Vertical blinds in a rich mossy hue follow the curve of this beautiful bow window and pick up the forest green tones from the feature wall mural.

Copper and rich ochre accents add a luxe edge to this modern rustic look.

Bold colour

A vibrant colour choice is another great way to add a finishing flourish to your scheme.

Bold combinations

If you want to truly embrace a maximalist look, then clashing colour and pattern is essential. In this wonderful living room, styled for us by interior designer Sophie Robinson, the base palette consists of blue, pink, yellow and white.

Strong geometric patterns and shapes feature strongly throughout, but the magic ingredient in great maximalist styling is to create visual contrast. Sophie has achieved this in a couple of ways.

Firstly she has countered the edgy look of the curtains with a soft floral blind, and second, she has paired a modernist boxy sofa with a curvaceous vintage velvet chaise.
