Dressing Your Window for SS13

Dressing your window shouldn’t be a snap decision.

You need to consider lots of factors including choosing a window dressing that will optimise the amount of light let into the room in question and deciding on the most appropriate window covering to suit your tastes (do you want a curtain? How about a blind? Or perhaps a shutter would work best?). You also need a look that’s stylish and current, with a simultaneous sense of timeless, classic fashion that possesses the longevity to keep your room looking fresh and not dated.

Today we’re here to talk about three of the biggest trends for SS13 that incorporate both a contemporary design in a tasteful manner that’s sure to last years: floral prints, graphic designs and stripes.

Floral prints

Floral prints are always a winner with interior styles. Their versatile design means they’ll fit easily in both contemporary and traditional homes, and with such a broad array of prints, styles and shades on the colour spectrum, you’re bound to find a style that’s perfect for you. As well as flowers, leaf print designs are a key look. Opt for rich, rustic colours like golds and deep berry reds for a look that oozes quality.


Graphic Designs

Choosing a graphic design for your window covering is a great way to create a statement look that will make your window the feature of the room. Ikat is without a doubt one of the hottest prints of the season. It’s vibrant and exotic, and brings together a bohemian chic feel with formal sophistication – an all round winner!



Vertical stripes are a quick and easy way to create the ultimate air of sophistication to your home, and offer you the added benefit of making your room look taller. If you’re after a decidedly contemporary feel, choose black and white, monochrome designs for a city-slick vibe, or if a traditional, country look is more your thing, quintessentially British colours (red, white and blue) will look great here.
