Window dressings are a great way to introduce pattern - you can draw them back in the mornings and just see a slither of pattern, before being wrapped up in their sumptuousness when you close them at night.

Decorate with the colour of the moment

For the first time ever Pantone colour experts have created a brand new shade to be named Pantone Colour of the Year 2022.

Summing up a ‘moment of transition as we move into a world forever changed by the pandemic’, ‘Very Peri’ is a vibrant periwinkle blue with violet red undertones.

Displaying a ‘spritely, joyous attitude’ its dynamic presence is just what we need right now!

Bring 'Very Peri’ to life

Is it blue? Is it purple? Is it somewhere in between? From a tonal Peri hue to a full on colour pop, there's something undeniably soothing about this shade. Here are just a few ways you can bring this dreamy colour into your home.

With its hazy shades of violet, mauve and blue, Abyss Aura will bring a sense of serenity and stillness that will transform any room into a haven of tranquillity. Lora Steel Blue sees a simple and energising palette balancing the warmth and softness of a beautifully crafted fabric while Drift Indigo is bold and dramatic with the wavy pattern adding zeal and character to your window. Available in both Roman and curtain fabrics, we’ve plenty of ways to bring this colour story home.

Privacy mode

Set the scene for quiet moments with loved ones and friends with this calming trend. It’s all about seclusion and creating an inviting, cocoon-like space to provide the perfect antidote to the cult of busy.

We’ve chosen the Drift Alabaster Roman blind for the window in this cosy reading nook. Pair with a rich palette of earthy browns, rustic, tufted textiles and snuggly knits to create the perfect backdrop for complete solitude.

Look out for out new capsule collection Calm Living launching early this year for more of this trend.

I like to have a room that feels restorative, where I can come away from the noises of the house. I use an earthy palette and beautiful reference points of black to make a space feel super sophisticated as well as cocooning.
