Scandinavian style is a continuing trend from last year and we predict it isn’t going anywhere any time soon. To get the desired Scandinavian style windows this year, we suggest simply adding stonewashed linen curtains with bleach wood poles. This will create a fresh, clean look ready for spring.
Rose gold and copper shades are everywhere this year. Mixing a copper pole with in-style pastel colours will really draw attention to your windows. Bold copper shades mixed with soft-on-the-eye pastels will set the right contrast, not just for spring but for the whole year.
There’s something about using metallic colours that sets a rich tone to any living space. There’s two ways you can use this style to get it right for spring. The first way is to have a grand metallic pole with tulip shaped ends – hang dusty blue fabric with a slight sheen and it will create the perfect look in a minimalist room. For a simpler, less harsh metallic style choose pastel colours such as greys and chalky pink fabrics to tone down the look.
