An ideal accent colour, Living Coral is just perfect for blinds and curtains. The team at Norwich Sunblinds can help you find fabrics in this gorgeous colour or tones inspired by it.

Living Coral Inspiration from Norwich Sunblinds
7 ways to channel the colour of 2019 in your blinds and curtains

1 – Simply coral, the colour of 2019

You can stay true to the Pantone of the Year and go for coral blinds. Let the colour do all the talking by having a neutral backdrop, grey or white walls work a treat. Team your coral roller blind with a lampshade or rug in a similar colour. Arrange an in-home appointment to kickstart your new look for 2019.

3 – Think burnt orange sunsets and tangerine

Orange makes a real style statement in a room and works well whether you are looking for blinds for the bathroom or kitchen blinds. In fact, orange adds a touch of vibrancy to any room. Try a bold block colour or tone it down by choosing a pattern with a neutral background. Contact the Norwich Sunblinds team to find out about orange options for your home. Don’t forget, we do made to measure curtains too! Our blinds and curtains are made in Norfolk by experienced craftspeople.
