Last week, we talked you through how to bring the summer stripes trend to your home. But it’s not just summer that stripes are synonymous with. Ahoy there sailor – it’s time we showed you how to get a beach-house look too. All hands on deck…
We aren’t all lucky enough to have a pretty little beach house by the sea, but we can bring the same feel to our homes. The light lines of our Seaside Stripes fabric from our Blue Roller blinds range will create a super stylish feel. Combine with a mixture of beach inspired accessories to complete the look: anchors, ships’ wheels, driftwood, seagulls and lighthouses all work really well.
Bring your holiday home
One of our favourite things about being by the sea is the pretty beach huts that line the front. Our Promenade Blue Roman blind had a gorgeous retro feel that looks great in kids’ rooms, and adds a touch of fun to grown-up spaces. And if you’re looking for a blackout blind, it’s easy to add a blackout lining to any of our Roman blinds to help you get a good night’s sleep.
Another great way to bring that fab holiday feel home is to create a mini display with shells, starfish or even little vessels full of sand. It’s a lovely way to document your travels – you could even use an old wooden cutlery tray and a lick of paint to put your DIY skills to good use too.
If you’re looking to bring gentle waves to your room, then our Gradola Vista Pleated blind will really float your boat. A Pleated blind is a perfectly practical choice for any room of the home, creating a super sleek look.
There’s something seriously refreshing about a trip to the seaside. It might building a sandcastle, (age seven or 70), or it might just be getting out in the fresh air. Either way, adding accessories inspired by nature into your home lets you bring some of that fun back with you. Try using stylish pebbles door knobs. Or opt for stripes with a distinctly natural feel with our Downtown Roman blind – the neutral shade makes it a perfect choice anywhere in the home.
