Think about your fabric choice when choosing drapery as window dressings are a great way to add interest. Whether you decide to layer fabrics with a blind and curtains to introduce multiple textures or opt for a stunning burn-out sheer like Rosaline from our Penthouse collection to add an ethereal feel to a space.
Pattern doesn’t have to equal colour. Embracing different designs in your home is a great way to express your personality and showcase your style. The beauty of decorating with neutrals is that the colour palette is suited to any design scheme, from the most traditional to the extremely modern.
