Top Tips for Creating the Ultimate Cosy Home

Posted November 1, 2019 /

Winter – the season when days are shorter, temperatures drop and skies can be grey, but there’s an upside; we can update our home interiors with cosy, stylish décors and accessories that create perfect environments for snuggling up in front of the fire with your favourite film and a hot chocolate!

And if you’re anything like us here at Style Studio, you’ll be spending lots more time indoors over the next few months, so we’ve put together five top tips to help you create the perfect home sanctuary for autumn and winter.

Layer it on (the more layers the better!) 

Nothing says cosy styling more than lots of layers – of throws, cushions and curtains in different colours and textures (think velvet, fur, wool and sheepskin) – adding a luxurious touch to bedrooms and living rooms.… view more.

Autumn Home Updates

Posted October 1, 2019 /

 

Autumn is an exciting time of change. Take inspiration from the rich yellow, orange and red tones of nature’s autumnal colour palette – perfect for updating every room in the home with cosy and texture-rich décor schemes for the new season.

Double Dressing Windows – the perfect autumn home update

A practical, design-led solution for creating a cosy sanctuary for autumn is the new trend of double dressing windows by layering blinds and curtains.

The most popular combination is a Roman blind with co-ordinating or contrasting curtains. Both can be lined, adding two layers of heat retention versus just one – a stylish way of making homes cosier during the colder months.… view more.

It’s Autumn Clean Time – tips for cleaning your blinds

Posted October 24, 2019 /

When the dark nights draw in and we turn the clocks back to winter time, the first thing we all want to do when we get home is to cosy up and close the blinds and curtains.  But that’s when we notice all the dust and dirt, especially on blinds and curtains that may have escaped the Spring Clean and that’s collected on our window dressings during the summer months.

 

This makes cleaning blinds an essential part of your autumn clean!

 

To keep nasty winter germs, bacteria and bugs at bay – as well as other nasties that cannot be seen by the human eye – an autumn clean can be more essential to health and wellbeing than the more typical spring clean.… view more.

Blinds and Curtains for a ‘Tranquil Dawn’

Posted October 24, 2019 /

Dulux has announced Tranquil Dawn as its colour of the year for 2020. Brilliant news, especially if you’re in search of some new window blinds or curtains with a hazy shade of grey-green.

It’s a colour we’ve favoured for some time here at Style Studio and it is available across most of our products – including Roman and curtain fabrics as well as our innovative Mirage roller blinds.

Our interiors expert Lorna McAleer says:

“Tranquil Dawn is a colour that encourages mindfulness and wellbeing.  It’s a reminder of how something as simple as stepping outside to enjoy the early morning sunrise can help us reconnect with ourselves and the people around us.… view more.

Roman & Curtain Collection

Posted September 24, 2019 /

Time to get cosy and add stylish sophistication to your interior. The stunning combination of Roman blinds & Curtains never fails to impress…

Not only does the trendy combination add a touch of class & privacy to any room, it can bring a feeling of warmth to your living room. As the frosty winter nights approach, simply close the curtains and immerse yourself in captive cosiness.

Doubling up your window coverings is an efficient energy saving solution as windows often allow cold air to sneak in and by combining the two styles, heat retention is increased. Keeping your home that little more toastie!… view more.
