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.
If you love these limited edition blinds you can enter the Luxaflex Instagram My Life My Style competition to be in for a chance to win one of them and there’s also a £1500 voucher for Luxaflex up for grabs every two months until May 2015, as well as lots of other prizes! All you have to do is post a picture (or as many pictures as you like) of what inspires your style and tag your picture with the hash tag #LuxaflexUK – it really is that simple. Winners will be picked by Julia Vogl, Abigail Ahern and Elle Decoration magazine. Here are a few of my Instagram pictures to show you what inspires my style: the places I visit, architecture, flowers, the floors I stand on, nature, ceramics, my friends’ homes, vintage furniture, textures, colour, exhibitions (I am @AptApothecary and you can find Luxaflex at @LuxaflexUK ).
Excuse me, whilst I rush off to enter the competition…
