Adding colour to your home

You may have noticed that I’m really into white. White floors, white walls, white kitchen, white bathroom, white bedlinen etc. However, I love to layer colour and pieces of interest on top of all the white as it is the perfect canvas for all of the furniture, artwork and soft furnishings that I love. Another easy way to inject colour into your home is by using blinds. But not any old blind, one designed by an artist so you can literally have a piece of art work at your window.

Luxaflex have teamed up with artist Julia Vogl to create limited edition roller blinds featuring her original  art work. Julia has designed two blinds, both inspired by views from a plane and only 25 have been made of each design. What do you think? I love the way they draw the eye and add an unexpected element of interest to the window in a modern, sleek way with no flounces or heaps of fabric that can cut out the light.

    I particularly like the first one – looks a bit like a stained glass window.

    I saw this shot on Instagram, they are AMAZING! I love how the soft furnishings match the blinds.
    I’m entering too – but if i don’t win, I currently have my eye on a John Lewis blind which is actually a lot more affordaable…

    have a great day

      Good luck! I love the styling too. You could the blind as the basis for the colour scheme of a room, which would work really well x

    OMG I love the second picture (bathtub), that looks heavenly. Don’t think you can ever have too much white
