Colour me blue … and drift into shades of denim!
Buying window blinds isn’t an every day task, and at first, you might think it wouldn’t cause that much trepidation. You’re looking for something different.
Buying window blinds isn’t an every day task, and at first, you might think it wouldn’t cause that much trepidation. You’re looking for something different. Something stylish. Something not too ‘in your face’. Shouldn’t be too difficult … should it?
Choosing the right colour
Whether you’re into relaxing pastels, bold accents or strong patterns, one consideration will always prevail … what colour should you base your designs and ideas around?
Let us introduce you to the Dulux Colour of the Year 2017 … Denim Drift.
Denim has pervaded our lives for longer than you may think. Originally coloured with indigo dye, denim became popular as a fabric for making sturdy work trousers way back in the mid-1800s. The rest, as they say, is history. Denim became ubiquitous, not only for work-wear, but in the world of fashion, with most people having at some time owned a pair of denim jeans, a shirt, skirt, jacket or waistcoat. The denim colour is a familiar friend, one that we almost take for granted.
Window blinds in dazzling denim!
Your room can wear denim too! Whether you put it alongside rich navies or pastel forget-me-not shades, it works well. The smoky tone of Denim Drift can be blocked with rich royal blue, or nestled against the palest of frosty hues; there’s certainly nothing wrong with being brave and using a wide range of blues together, including using them for your window blinds.
Blue is the colour of the year, and this season it’s bang on trend for all your window décor items.
Blue has become sophisticated, adaptable and, well … a bit more grown up. No more the colour that’s connected with making rooms look dark or cold, it’s become the urbane big brother that steps out in style.
Colour block a rich blue window blind with a pastel frame, choose a paler hue to offset a bold blue accent wall, or merge smoky colours together for a classy combination; use those familiar colours from favourite comfy jeans or well-worn denim jacket. Anything goes!
