Summer blinds

Feeling inspired by the summer sun and talk of trips to the coast? I love these two fabulous seaside themed fabrics from our Roman blinds range.


  Gettaway Sky (above left) has more than a touch of the 50s about it. This gorgeous print features sailing boats and beach huts, and the pretty blue shade is bang on trend right now - sitting alongside those other ice cream pastel tones - pistachio, pink, lemon and lavender - beautifully.

This blind would make the perfect finishing touch to a simple blue bathroom. And it would also look great in a nautical themed room, packed full with knick-knacks you've collected on your travels to the beach.

Boardwalk Bayou (above right) combines two of my favourite things right now. In the spirit of the very patriotic summer we're all experiencing, it features our national colours of red, white and blue. And the stripes are reminiscent of that most British of traditions, the seaside deck chair.

Classic stripes will work in any room and this blind would be a great way to inject a splash of colour into a fairly neutral room. The perfect finishing touch to beach hut themed room, it would also look great in a boy's bedroom, a bathroom or a kitchen. Anywhere in fact!
