Touch me now fabrics, linings that are colourful, fringing to die for and cushions to match – you can once and for all wave goodbye to bland window dressing forever! Here here to that I say.
One of the most exciting collabs i have done to date is that with Hillary’s blinds where I have designed a capsule collection of curtains and blinds (19 in total) that are not only super glam they are highly textural. We launched last year not knowing how they would be received and I have to say both Hillary’s and I have been blown away with the response.
I happen to think of curtains and blinds as jewellery they finish off rooms so beautifully. For this collection there are a lot of faux velvets, leathers and tribal prints all of which are rocking a masculinity sensibility whilst the lux fringing adds flashes of femininity and big shots of colour.
The brief I gave to myself was to create a glamorous, sexy and utterly alluring collection– oh and to make them the coolest affordable collection of curtains and blinds on the planet. Big ask right, but if i can say such things feel we have done just that.
A key component in the collection was keeping the colour palette restrained and the textural levels high so they feel super luxurious and super sophisticated. As we gently move into the cooler months there is nothing that ups the cosiness factor than cocooning textiles at our windows!
