It has been recognised and heavily documented that there has been a resurging trend in soft furnishings and more colourful, bold, patterned and intricate design. Subsequently we have seen a huge range of contemporary and bold fabrics and wallpapers become available to satisfy our need for cutting edge, high design homes with a new, bright and daring look.
Although this is a definite improvement from the dull and drab homes of the minimalist era; it has now come to the stage where we are beginning to see a handful of common and overly used designs in magazines and our friend’s homes. The Prestigious Décor Range, however, brings a novel, fresh and independent twist on the popular designs we have become so infatuated with, to provide you with a high fashion look yet unique finish at a very reasonable cost.
The collection consists of just two simple silhouette style prints in either a damask pattern or botanical trellis available in a variety of bold or more muted colours. The simplistic take on these well-loved designs makes them a pure and subtle statement for your home.
Furthermore, every design within this collection has an ivory white background, making these choices fresh, airy and clean while ensuring that your window dressings will remain light and bright and not create a dark and imposing feeling. Whichever design you prefer, these long, vertical patterns are very effective when used on simple curtains or blinds. If choosing roman blinds, however, do be sure to consider how the pattern will fold and consequently appear when open (pulled up).
The varied range of colours available also makes this the Décor collection a useful tool to help inject some colour, personality and vibrancy in to your home. By simply adding these curtains and a selection of coordinating scatter cushions, frames, rugs and candles you can add some vitality and fun into an otherwise bland or monotone room.To continue the simplistic silhouette style of the fabric you could also have a go at some painting yourself.For example, why not replicate these patterns (or find coordinating wallpaper) to create a complementary feature wall over a fireplace, bed head or bath tub.
Alternatively, if you already have your colour scheme in place, these fabrics can work to dress your windows in a coordinating fabric without introducing too much colour or pattern in to the room. To add an extra level of depth and design, why not consider using these fabrics as long and elegant dress curtains and team with a hard pelmet, roller blind or roman blind in a coordinating plain that can again be used for scatter cushions etc?
In summary, the Décor Collection provides a compromise between minimalism and pattern overload. The bold pattern, teamed with crisp lines and flat tones means they can be introduced easily and subtly into any design scheme, yet can also be used to give a plainer room an injection of contemporary colour and edge.
