How to Match Your Blinds with the Pantone Colours of the Year

The Pantone colour of the year is always a big surprise, however this year Pantone changed the game by selecting two colours as their favourites, Rose Quartz and Serenity blue. We think this is a great choice, as the calming couple are perfect for creating a beautifully balanced interior. Within our huge range of colours, fabrics and styles of blinds and curtains, we have chosen our favourites that reflect Pantone’s sophisticated colour favourites.

The texture of this luxury fabric roman blind combines perfectly with the subtle shades of pink in the room. The shimmer that the fabric creates looks great with the sheer silk cushions and cream accessories. The folds of the roman blind look perfect with both of the Pantone colours, and with 100s of tempting fabrics, we are sure you’ll find the perfect texture and style to match your room.

The Pantone Serenity blue is a great colour to integrate into your work place. Vertical blinds are a functional and professional way to adorn your office windows, whilst the cool blue reflects connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of calm.

You can see from the photos above that these pleated blinds create an airy, calming atmosphere, particularly in conservatories. The sheer fabrics allow more natural light to fill the room whilst still maintaining privacy. We love the patterns chosen for these blinds- the Rose quartz combined with the flower pattern looks stylish but sweet, whilst the horizontal pattern on the Serenity blinds connotes the ocean.

Shutters are a quirky touch to any room, especially when painted in pastel shades. Allowing light in, but maintaining privacy, shutters might be the solution you have been hoping for. The Serenity blue combined with the stylish shutters definitely gives a seaside feel to the interior.

Rose Quartz looks really great combined with intricate patterns, such as flowers, hearts and polka dots. We offer a multitude of designs, colours, textures and specially treated fabrics for roller blinds , so whatever you fancy, we’re sure to offer the style you need.

Don’t forget how great Serenity blue looks in a bathroom! Its peaceful aura is perfect for relaxing in a hot bubble bath.

It’s officially the end of the Summer and the Autumn chills are definitely in the air! As the evenings are getting darker, all we want to do is snuggle in a fluffy blanket by the fire in an inviting and warm interior. As the seasons change, so do our moods, tastes and preferences, so start thinking about how you would like to redecorate your interiors this Autumn.


Curtains are the perfect way to change the entire feel of your room through the new textures, colours and shapes it creates around your windows. Curtains are practical as the weather gets colder, as they trap the heat inside the room, whilst also becoming an aesthetic focal point. So which curtains would be perfect for your interior this Autumn?


Autumn colours generally reflect nature’s seasonal changes, such as the bronzes, oranges, reds and burgundies found in Autumnal leaves. Combining these colours with wooden accessories and furnishings creates a beautifully traditional look. Add some matching cushions and rustic accessories such as lanterns and ladders for a truly gorgeous, warm and inviting interior.

Think about relaxing in your garden, a book in one hand and a cocktail in the other, soaking in the summer and enjoying the scenery. However, this blissful scene can often be ruined with a simple drizzle or an uncomfortably hot sun. Awnings can be the ultimate solution for these problems, ensuring you take advantage of the living space you have, not having to worry about the elements.

There are many advantages to residential awnings that you may not have considered, so we have a few reasons here to help you out:

1/ Protection from the sun in more than one way

Shading is important to keep your body at a comfortable temperature, ensuring you do not overheat, whilst also sheltering you from harmful UV rays. The awning can help decrease your outdoor area by over 20 degrees. This can also save a lot of energy - heat gain through windows is one of the main reasons why houses need air conditioning. In some climates, homeowners can expect to save up to 50% of cooling energy just by using an awning. The idea may sound simple but it can save you money on your energy bills.
