2. Festive colours for your home

The traditional colours of Christmas are red and green – think holly with berries and Father Christmas. Warm bronze tones and browns also work well with decorations, accessorise with candles to add that warm glow to your interior. Choose these colours for your living room curtains or kitchen blinds, they’ll work well all year round.

3. Channel the feel of Danish Hygge

In a nutshell, the concept of Hygge is all about embracing all things cosy and enjoying the simple things in life. Add warm fabrics to your soft furnishings, combine woollen rugs with faux fur cushions. Your blinds or curtains should be kept simple, try roller blinds or pleated blinds in subtle neutrals such as grey and taupe or calming tones like blues and greens. Not sure what blinds to go for in your home? With over 40 years’ experience fitting blinds of all kinds, we can help. Contact the Norwich Sunblinds team for advice.

4. Super stylish sparkle and metallics

Gone are the days when sparkle is just for Christmas, we enjoy sequins and sparkle all year round. Long after the tinsel has been packed away, silver and gold fabrics are just as popular in interiors. Metallics are a trend that is here to stay, as a quick flick through any fashion magazine shows. If you opt for metallics in your blinds or curtains, they will work well with your Christmas decorations and look just as good in the summer months. Add white cushions and throws for a contemporary feel, we can make soft furnishings to coordinate with your blinds and curtains.
