Refreshing ideas for working with a range of neutral hues

Neutral colours can provide the perfect base for a cosy, inviting space. If you love the feel of light and airy spaces, natural styling and subtle colour, then you’ll find these barely there options with nude neutrals and semi-sheer styles a breath of fresh air.

Nude hues

Neutrals are so easy to live with, and this season’s warmer tones are particularly cosy and calming.

Combine nude tones with soft cream and rich biscuit to add depth.

Add interest with subtle pattern and a mix of textures, from luxurious velvets to rustic rattan.

Natural forms

In the world of interior design, there is a distinct move towards using authentic materials that celebrate a simple aesthetic – the natural beauty of wood grain, the textural richness of exposed brick and the raw patina of bare plaster.    

Faux-Wood and real Wooden Venetian blinds are an elegant choice, offering superb functionality, durability and the timeless beauty of ethically sourced natural wood.

Private moments

We’ve come a long way from the era of twitching net curtains, but lots of homeowners still need to deal with the problem of being overlooked.

Sensationally sheer and simple, Voile curtains  and Roman blinds are made from delicate, sheer fabrics to provide daytime privacy and gently filter light.

Pearly whites

A sheer Roller blind can solve the problem of daytime privacy, but our Day & Night Roller blinds go a step further, with fabric slats that can be opened or closed to control light levels and give you total night time privacy too.

A sheer for all seasons

Throughout the summer, Voile curtains are just wonderful for creating spaces that are light and breezy. But as the temperature drops, you want to feel cosy and warm.  That’s why it’s a great idea to layer curtains over Voiles, giving you the best of both seasons.
