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. Let's dive into our creative home interior design ideas.

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, they also echo the modernity of the space.

Bold accents

Colour not only influences your mood and mindset, it helps add personality and character to a space too.

When choosing the colour palette for this bright kitchen space, Gemma went for shades of lime green and orange for bold statement with a naturally refreshing feel.

The bold colours contrasts wonderfully with the white Wooden blind, for a finishing look that’s cheerful and happy but also fresh, crisp and clean.

For me, maximalism feels like home. It’s a great way for me to show off my personality and add some life and vibrancy to a small space to give it a fresh new look.

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.

Custom colour shutters can bring a fun feel to any space, so they're a great choice for children's spaces.

Our service lets you choose shutters in almost any colour you can think of from hot pink to sunshine yellow. It's ideal for matching shutters to the paint colour of your walls, your furniture or even just your favourite shade.

Stylist and brand consultant Erica Davies matched the wooden shutters in her family’s playroom to the exact shade of her green stair carpet, creating an inspirational room packed with personality while still feeling connected to the rest of the house.

This beautiful rich green transforms the space, plus pulls a little bit of the outside in. We’re surrounded by green grass and trees, so I love it.

Bold bathroom ideas

Create a distinctive room divide with made-to-measure solid shutters in your favourite custom colour.

In this bedroom we've taken the blue and white bathroom scheme through to the bedroom with these striking blue dividing doors.

It's best to choose from our shutters made from waterproof ABS for a bathroom as they are resistant to moisture and changes in temperature.

They're really easy to wipe clean too making them perfect for rooms like this.

Bold combinations

If you want to truly embrace a maximalist look, then clashing colour and pattern is essential. In this wonderful living room, the base palette consists of pink, gold and white.

Strong geometric patterns and shapes feature strongly throughout, but the magic ingredient in great maximalist styling is to create visual contrast.

For example, counter the edgy look of the curtains with a soft furnishings, and second, pair a modernist boxy sofa with a curvaceous gold table.

Bold colours for north facing room

North-facing rooms often receive less direct natural sunlight, creating a cooler and sometimes even slightly dim atmosphere.

Embracing bold colors can be a stylish and effective way to bring warmth and energy into your space. Warm reds, oranges, and deep browns visually counteract coolness, evoking a sense of warmth and making a space feel more inviting and comfortable.
