It’s been months in the making, with huge amounts of planning and research going into expertly curating a collection with all the latest styles and on-trend fabrics for homes. The new Style Studio Roman Blind & Curtain Collection has just landed and it’s our most extravagant yet!
With over 320 fabrics comprised of striking plains and eye-catching patterns, there is something to suit all tastes and styles of property. Even better, each fabric has been chosen to either stand alone or co-ordinate with others within the collection giving even more options for styling windows.
“We’re real advocates of double dressing windows,” explains Lorna McAleer, Style Studio’s resident interiors expert. “Not only does this allow homeowners to experiment with combinations of pattern and colour, but it also adds an extra layer of insulation to keep homes lovely and cosy. And the new collection makes it easy to combine beautifully made Roman blinds and curtains.”
To help homeowners whittle down their choice, Lorna has also put together her four favourite looks below – not an easy task considering how many stunning fabrics are available.
Rays of Sunshine
Lorna says, “A sun room or garden room deserves a window treatment that complements the view and reflects the natural light that floods the room, such as curtains in our NEW Peyton fabric. It’s one of our real ‘knock out’ designs, especially in a vivid Mimosa colourway that makes a real statement at the windows.”
We’ve paired this with a Roman blind in Nevin fabric, which has a subtle wood grain effect, brought to life by the Sunflower colourway. A perfect pairing to add vibrancy to one of the most relaxing rooms in the home.
Love this bold look? Why not try out some of your own daring pattern combinations using DesignSpace – which allows you to see and compare window coverings in a variety of rooms.
Fabric with visual interest that goes deeper than simple surface pattern will be a huge trend in 2019. Layering and texture will be created within fabric weaves. Texture will also take the form of tufted, quilted material and cut out or raised effects with metallic highlights further amplifying these multi-layered designs. Elaborate embroidery, tasselling and decorative finishing on cushions, blinds, curtains are all big news.
“To achieve this look, layer up our Pandora, Broadway and Zyra fabrics in a lustrous Pewter on cushions, blinds and curtains.”
Be a Plain Jane
“It’s no secret that we love pattern, but we’re equally enamoured with plains – especially those with textured effects that add interest without having to commit to adventurous designs.”
With over 150 plain fabrics to choose from in our new collection there’s something for everyone, from our soft, silky Oasis and sumptuous velvet fabrics, to linen looks and subtle, woven designs.
“I’ve chosen Macy curtains for my top four. It’s classically elegant with small-scale chevrons for a subtle, textured look.”
A Winning Combination
This look is great for anyone who really can’t decide between patterns or plains. And for those who’re unsure about how to mix different patterns together. Introduce a bold design such as our abstract geometric Curtis fabric, then pick out one of the colours on a plain blind.
Any of our Roman blinds and curtain fabrics can be made into superb quality cushions – another affordable way to introduce pattern throughout the room.
We might’ve mentioned our gorgeous quality co-ordinating cushions, but did you know that Style Studio also offers a range of tie backs and hold backs – either in matching fabric or with crystal or beaded embellishments – plus curtain poles and finials to complete your look.
And with the new Powershade Roman blind motorisation system, Roman blinds can be controlled by the touch of a button either by remote control or via our NEW Smart Controller Smartphone app on iOS and Android. It’s even compatible with Amazon Alexa® and Google Home so if homeowners want to open or close the blinds all they need do is ask!
