A Splash of Color
Any neutral room can be enhanced with bright blinds and spring really gives homeowners the opportunity to experiment with colors. Embrace citrus colors this season with modern block color and print blinds in yellow and orange. These citrus colored blinds complete a truly modern look in kitchens that are painted white with dark wood fixtures and fittings.
Bright red and fuchsia pinks are also a great look to channel during the warmer seasons and again brighten neutrally decorated rooms.
Green with Envy
Green blinds also create a style statement this spring/summer and you’ll see many shades in store from emerald to muted jade greens. Whether a Venetian, roller or roman shades, green blinds just scream spring as well as creating a fresh look that will look great all year round.
Pastel Makes Perfect
Pastel colored blinds are also a favorite on the interior design scene and this spring is no different. Pastel colors like fondant pink, baby blue and lemon yellow all add a touch of retro to interiors. If you already have pastel accents decorating your rooms, why not work on the texture of your blinds instead to create an interesting feature that won’t appear ‘over the top’. As well as looking great, casual linen blinds provide welcome shade during the summer month whilst allowing some light though to create an airy room that makes the most of all the natural light the season has to offer.
Nothing says spring like a touch of flower power! Floral patterned roller blinds add a colorful and vibrant touch to any room and installing flower print blinds can be the perfect way of bringing the outdoors in during this beautiful season. Allow your home interior to blossom with floral blinds in any color. Leaf prints will also be popular this season and is a discreet way of adding a touch of spring to your home, providing a lasting look that won’t appear out of place come winter. Why not combine a leaf print with the hottest color for spring 2013? Luscious leaf prints in green allow you to channel two trends to create the ultimate seasonal style statement.
