In my apartment I have several smaller windows that don’t warrant curtains but still need something to soften them, so I’ve been searching on Web Blinds to find some affordable solutions using window blinds (Mr. Bazaar is a renter on a budget!). When I own a home I’d love to install window shutters but for now I’m happy to stick with roman blinds as they are a great way to introduce colour and pattern to a room. For now I’m looking for a style that will go with my new sofa.
The first look, Swedish Check, is inspired by my travels to Sweden last week. Having seen many walls clad in wood I’m now craving the opportunity to bring this look into my own home! I noticed how the owners had often chosen colourful checked fabrics and introduced them as window treatments as a way of bringing colour and warmth to the cool whitewashed base. The second approach, English Country, calls upon the ever popular polka dot pattern to create a comforting and traditional look. There’s a simplicity to this look that appeals to me but I think I could live with the check pattern in the first space for longer as it’s more visually interesting. Classic Nautical is the final look and I picked this because I thought it was refreshing to see how a nautical theme could be introduced somewhere other than a bathroom. The simple blue and white stripe roman blind lends a sense of timeless style to the scheme, after all, I can’t see this style ever falling out of favour, especially as blue and white work so well together! I like how the stripe pattern has been echoed across the other textiles in the space, using stripes of varying widths and colours to keep the scheme interesting. Which of these three roller blind looks do you like best?
