Introducing… the Parisian Edit

Bring classic style to your home with this laidback collection of Roman blinds and curtains that captures the essence of Paris and those whimsical interiors that are instantly recognisable as French.

The edit embraces a love of natural styling and happy spaces. There are ginghams in faded shades of red and blue and classic French stripes on rustic linen-look fabrics, inspired by Parisian café culture and a flea market aesthetic.

Toile De Paris

The hero of the Parisian Edit is our Toile de Paris fabric, a truly unique design. This simple line drawing of Parisian street scenes brings a playful element that’s fun and welcoming.

Whether it's a charming café tucked away on a side street, the grandeur of a historic monument, or the laughter echoing from a bustling market, each moment sparks inspiration.

Gorgeous gingham

Originally woven in the French countryside, gingham has become synonymous with Parisian markets and cafés. But beyond its connection to France, gingham's timeless design resonates with our current desire for comfort and a connection to simpler times.

The playful check is often associated with children, which makes it a lovely window dressing for this child's bedroom.

Parisians are the masters of effortless chic, in both their clothes and their decor. Stick to a calming, neutral palette of whites and creams on walls and add drama with flashes of bright colour on blinds or cushions

With measuring and fitting always included too, it’s never been easier to welcome the essence of Paris into the home.

Coquette aesthetic

The coquette trend translates beautifully into interiors. Think Marie Antoinette meets modern living, but with a touch of Parisian flair – after all, the term "coquette" itself originates from France.

Soft, airy materials like sheer Voiles in blush pinks, pale lavenders, or even a touch of powder blue are key to this aesthetic. And don't be afraid to play with layering! Pair curtains with a Roman blind underneath for a touch of drama that will add both practicality and visual interest. Delicate stripes echo the sophistication of Parisian fashion, while maintaining the romantic and playful spirit of the trend.

Beautiful blooms

A Parisian home is incomplete without fresh flowers. Bouquets of roses, peonies, or lilies breathe life into the space and add a natural burst of colour.

Bring home the blooms through your window dressings with floral patterns like this beautiful Delizia Indigo curtain. Sprays of blue flowers feel fresh and bright for the warmer months of the year while in winter the soft hues brighten dark nights and look lush in the glow of scented candles. Team with a Voile curtain to gently filter the light for an extra touch of Parisian charm.

Parisian icons

Window dressings that cover the lower half of your window such as café-style shutters are quintessentially French.

In this home office, café-style shutters in Stone Grey are a perfect reflection of the practical yet elegant Parisian way of life. They help maintain a sense of privacy while letting in plenty of natural light in through the top half of the window.

It doesn’t get more Parisian than café-style shutters – effortlessly chic, they immediately conjure up memories of sitting in the French capital, café au lait in hand, watching the world go by.

Wooden elements

Warm wood tones, exposed beams or distressed floorboards often seen in older Parisian apartments, are a hallmark of this style. Rustic elements bring a touch of charm and character to a space, while maintaining the sense of sophistication French interiors are known for.

Take wood to your windows with our range of Wooden blinds. A comforting addition to any home, Wooden blinds have the quality and luxury associated with a natural product, for spaces that feel naturally warm and welcoming.

A symphony of neutrals

At the heart of Parisian style is a neutral colour palette, often dominated by soft shades of white, cream, beige, and grey. These hues provide a canvas for other design elements to shine and create an atmosphere of understated sophistication

In this bedroom, the clean, classic stripes of our Duke Olive Roman blinds in a neutral colour combination infuse a sense of warmth to the space and pays homage to the elegance of French design.
