    armchairs paired with Brussels Lagoon for your curtains to combine both in the same overarching blue scheme Tip 2 Choose a classic pattern across multiple surfaces Classic patterns such as stripes polka dots or the on trend chevron are timeless and have been used decade after decade in interior design The perk of these tried and tested patterns is that you are likely to find them in a wide range of surfaces not just commercial textiles Artworks for your walls ceramic vases candle stands rugs throws and even lamp shades can be found with striped dotted or chevron patterns adorning them This means you can layer the patterns throughout the room choosing the same print but in different thicknesses or fading aesthetics In the picture shown below the chevron print is brought out through a modern abstracted artwork for the wall as well as a crisp upholstery fabric on the cushions The triangular forms are echoed by the statement pendant light fixture and the delicate brass and copper wire basket displayed on the shelves Sheer curtain drapery basks the room in light showcasing the chevron pattern in all its glory Tip 3 Use scale to your advantage Interior Design Pro suggests playing with the scale of patterns experimenting with big and bold patterns beside small and delicate prints Although there is no strict rule of thumb most professionals will recommend not going beyond three to four different patterns when dabbling in scale as any more could become jarring and overwhelming Give this tip a whirl by choosing the bigger scale flowers on Poppy Fuchsia designer upholstery fabric with the tinier more delicate floral imagery of Litzy Mauve solid drapery fabric Tip 4 Balance with neutrals strategically It helps to soften prints and patterns with solid neutrals In an interview with House Beautiful designer Ashley Whittaker shared her top advice on how to strategically use solid neutrals to your advantage I always tell clients not to be scared of pattern said Ms Whittaker They ll look at six by six inch swatches tightly clustered on a table and say ooh wow that seems like a lot Of course I interspersed them with solids and neutrals For interspersing your prints stock up on versatile neutrals such as creme beige brown grey white or black commercial textiles Tip 5 Choose prints or patterns that match the style of your home design Is your interior decor more contemporary sleek and modern or antique vintage and rustic chic Patterns and prints will also fall into these two spectrums of style with some more futuristic and mod while others nodding to the past with ornate intricate line work The trick to succeeding with a modern scheme is to prioritise block colours and solid upholstery fabric in keeping with the minimalism vibe but to introduce one standout feature print The image shared below does exactly that the sofa rug cushions and furniture are all in single colours in block materials with not a single pattern anywhere in sight Instead one feature wallpaper with bold yellow and white prints ties into the rest of the decor by staying in the same overarching colour scheme but easily stands out from the rest of the room thanks to the pattern On the other hand a bohemian vintage look will clutter and clash as many different earthy organic prints such as leaves and plants with bold vibrant colours both looks have their own value and impact so choose your own preference Charles Parsons Interiors is one of the largest and most diverse fabric wholesalers in Australia and New Zealand For more information on their collections and more

and luxe embellishments adorn the windows in each room to transfor this home In this Mel Read more When it comes to impact warm textured fabrics elegant shapes and luxe embellishments adorn the windows in each room to transfor this home In this Melbourne home Dollar Curtains Blinds designed and installed drapes sheer curtains roman blinds sunscreen roller blinds plantation shutters and custom window seat cushions Situated in Wonga Park the DCB team has truly put the finishing touches on this amazing family home Elegant Curtain Ideas for Your Living Room The main living room curtains were the ideal choice to ensure the best possible insulation with so much glass The long length drapes further accentuate the dramatic effect of the two story high windows Dollar Curtains Blinds have installed the curtains higher above the windows and designed them to hang gathered on the floor so that the curtains keep in proportion to the large expanses of glass and further increase the height of the windows This also ensures the curtains fall beautifully and adds an extra sense of grandeur The five metre length drapes have a luxurious formal appearance with our goblet curtain heading and button embellishments The tiebacks frame the large scale windows and were intentionally made to fit tighter than usual so more of a ballooning effect is achieved when holding the drapes to the sides Consistency has been maintained throughout the home in the fabrics decorative poles and hold backs to ensure there is a link between each room across the two levels Elegant hold backs have been mounted to the walls and work to fit the drapes elegantly in place and tie in with the poles given the windows long drops The simplicity of soft roman blinds was combined with the fresh softness of sheer curtains in the guest bedrooms walk in robe and bathroom To ensure a complete block out and maximise insulation benefits the blinds were lined and installed outside the recess of the windows White sheers layered across the roman blinds glisten in the sun with our knife pleat curtain heading adding a modern and tailored look and allowing a flat finish when the curtains are drawn closed The sheers also add privacy during the day when the blinds are drawn open to let light into the rooms Curtain Ideas for Formal Living and Dining Rooms In the formal living and dining rooms curtains were designed with a reverse pleat heading which creates a tailored appearance hanging below decorative rods Flat Austrians were chosen for the formal living room to add a decorative finish designed with a small amount of gather due to the closeness of the three large windows Adding lining was an essential element when designing the home s window coverings The Dollar Curtains Blinds lining used provides insulation for the home trapping the heat in during winter and blocking it out in summer and assists in reducing outside noise The lining also protects the fabrics from fading or deteriorating from sun damage extending the life of the window coverings and allowing the clients to capitalise on their investment In addition to all of these practical benefits our lining also added aesthetic benefits Backing the curtains with lining creates an improved drape with increased fullness allowing for a luxurious finish All the different window coverings were also lined with the same type and colour lining to ensure uniformity to the exterior appearance of the home while allowing a broad choice of textures weaves and colours for the interior In the ensuite the clients wanted to take advantage of the high windows and allow as much natural light to filter into the room as possible as well as ensure the beautiful bush views weren t obstructed To meet the brief we have installed our plantation shutters only across the bottom half of the window panes This ensures privacy for the bathroom when in use with the adjustable panels but allows light to stream through the top windows and keep the bush views To create a similar look in your home contact the DCB team for a showroom or in home consultation More Instagram We Happy Customers View all reviews testimonials Dollar Curtains Blinds

Here are some tips from our fabric wholesaler charles parsons interiors on how to add luxury to your bathrooms with our custom made curtains Many interior Read more Here are some tips from our fabric wholesaler charles parsons interiors on how to add luxury to your bathrooms with our custom made curtains Many interior designers specialise in decorating bathrooms for this very purpose making the zone feel like a relaxing escape from reality by installing lavish bathtubs hanging soft towels lighting scented candles and keeping bath salts and petals beside the tub But there s another element to completing the look that is often overlooked designer curtains Hanging by the window behind the tub or beside the vanity your bathroom curtains can bring class elegance and sophistication to the space to make it feel more like a room instead of an amenity Here s some tips for using custom made curtains to do this job Use custom made curtains as an accent colour White is by no means the only hue to use in a bathroom despite it being one of the most common palettes for a loo Inject a pop of colour into the neutral tones of white cream or grey by picking curtain fabric in vibrant hues Red is a classic exemplar instantly drawing the eye in towards the tone try Asina Lychee or Asina Scarlet for a striking maroon and red tinged fabric Echo the curtain colour in other focal points dotted throughout the bathroom such as decorative objects towels rugs toothbrush and soap stands or shelving cabinets The red accent colour in this minimalist bathroom could be enhanced by red custom made curtains Complement the tub with curtain fabric Spend time on any interior website be it Elle Decor or Houzz and you ll notice the trend of enormous tubs propping up These bathtubs run the gamut from vintage versions with ornate clawed feet contrasting against otherwise sleek modern bathrooms or hyper minimalist ceramic tubs making a statement in contemporary bathrooms lined in shiny marble tiles Pick curtains in a complementary style For example antique aesthetics can be evoked through floral curtain fabric such as Leathan Mulberry or Althorp Tweed An alternative is to use Baroque inspired regal patterns such as Corso Como Steel Having said that don t underestimate the power of a sheer curtain in a warm colour such as orange or red Light filtering through the fabric will reflect the hue across the bathroom immersing the space in a whimsical light that creates ambiance and mood Try Calypso Poppy to achieve this mystical atmosphere in your bathroom It would look fantastic behind a green potted plant as the red and green complementary colours will naturally offer harmony Sheer curtain fabric with a tint like this red curtain lets light in but creates a mood too Choose curtains that embrace the current organic trend A leading aesthetic in bathroom design right now is to mesh organic wooden elements with glass steel and tile Woven baskets timber panelling weathered wood shelves are all considered the creme de la creme of green interior design for bathrooms Succulents and other indoor plants complete the earthy natural look This style is in many ways influenced by the international drive towards sustainability and valuing green building methods Not to mention organic aesthetics are beautiful indeed as the father of organic architecture and revered architect Frank Lloyd Wright put it Organic architecture seeks superior sense of use and a finer sense of comfort expressed in organic simplicity It s this raw natural simplicity that makes the incorporation of wood into bathroom spaces so pleasing An idyllic way to stay on trend is by evoking the wooden texture through your choice of curtain fabric Koby Straw is a richly textured polyester material that fits the bill perfectly Wooden elements and other earthy organic materials are on trend in bathrooms Charles Parsons Interiors is one of the largest and most diverse fabric wholesalers in Australia and New

fabric wholesaler Charles Parsons Interiors on how best to mix and match patterns Don t shy away from prints and patterns While it may seem less of a risk to stick to a neutral colour scheme or monochromatic palette prints and patterns have the power to completely transform and elevate a space into a chic interior It s simply a matter of carefully and tastefully curating the patterns so they work seamlessly together in a complementary manner It can understandably be tricky to master mixing and matching patterns from the get go many interior designers hone these very skills over a career while others have an instinctive natural aptitude for pairing prints No matter which end of the spectrum you fall on there are universal tips and tricks to succeed in this styling process Here are a few of these backed by industry professionals Tip 1 Rely on a cohesive colour palette To find the balance between matchy matchy and clashing it s all about choosing an overarching colour palette suggests interior stylist Justina Blakeney in an interview with Architectural Digest As the author and owner of the popular Bohemian inspired blog The Jungalow Blakeney relies on the use of a single colour to tie the patterns together This doesn t mean you have to pick the exact same hue but rather varying light and dark tones of the same base colour will also work harmoniously together with the diverse patterns Try this tip by matching the swirling pattern upholstery fabric of Maze Turquoise on your cushions or armchairs paired with Brussels Lagoon for your curtains to combine both in the same overarching blue scheme Tip 2 Choose a classic pattern across multiple surfaces Classic patterns such as stripes polka dots or the on trend chevron are timeless and have been used decade after decade in interior design The perk of these tried and tested patterns is that you are likely to find them in a wide range of surfaces not just commercial textiles Artworks for your walls ceramic vases

    been used decade after decade in interior design The perk of these tried and tested patterns is that you are likely to find them in a wide range of surfaces not just commercial textiles Artworks for your walls ceramic vases candle stands rugs throws and even lamp shades can be found with striped dotted or chevron patterns adorning them This means you can layer the patterns throughout the room choosing the same print but in different thicknesses or fading aesthetics In the picture shown below the chevron print is brought out through a modern abstracted artwork for the wall as well as a crisp upholstery fabric on the cushions The triangular forms are echoed by the statement pendant light fixture and the delicate brass and copper wire basket displayed on the shelves Sheer curtain drapery basks the room in light showcasing the chevron pattern in all its glory Tip 3 Use scale to your advantage Interior Design Pro suggests playing with the scale of patterns experimenting with big and bold patterns beside small and delicate prints Although there is no strict rule of thumb most professionals will recommend not going beyond three to four different patterns when dabbling in scale as any more could become jarring and overwhelming Give this tip a whirl by choosing the bigger scale flowers on Poppy Fuchsia designer upholstery fabric with the tinier more delicate floral imagery of Litzy Mauve solid drapery fabric Tip 4 Balance with neutrals strategically It helps to soften prints and patterns with solid neutrals In an interview with House Beautiful designer Ashley Whittaker shared her top advice on how to strategically use solid neutrals to your advantage I always tell clients not to be scared of pattern said Ms Whittaker They ll look at six by six inch swatches tightly clustered on a table and say ooh wow that seems like a lot Of course I interspersed them with solids and neutrals For interspersing your prints stock up on versatile neutrals such as creme beige brown grey white or black commercial textiles Tip 5 Choose prints or patterns that match the style of your home design Is your interior decor more contemporary sleek and modern or antique vintage and rustic chic Patterns and prints will also fall into these two spectrums of style with some more futuristic and mod while others nodding to the past with ornate intricate line work The trick to succeeding with a modern scheme is to prioritise block colours and solid upholstery fabric in keeping with the minimalism vibe but to introduce one standout feature print The image shared below does exactly that the sofa rug cushions and furniture are all in single colours in block materials with not a single pattern anywhere in sight Instead one feature wallpaper with bold yellow and white prints ties into the rest of the decor by staying in the same overarching colour scheme but easily stands out from the rest of the room thanks to the pattern On the other hand a bohemian vintage look will clutter and clash as many different earthy organic prints such as leaves and plants with bold vibrant colours both looks have their own value and impact so choose your own preference Charles Parsons Interiors is

room to transfor this home In this Melbourne home Dollar Curtains Blinds designed and installed drapes sheer curtains roman blinds sunscreen roller blinds plantation shutters and custom window seat cushions Situated in Wonga Park the DCB team has truly put the finishing touches on this amazing family home Elegant Curtain Ideas for Your Living Room The main living room curtains were the ideal choice to ensure the best possible insulation with so much glass The long length drapes further accentuate the dramatic effect of the two story high windows Dollar Curtains Blinds have installed the curtains higher above the windows and designed them to hang gathered on the floor so that the curtains keep in proportion to the large expanses of glass and further increase the height of the windows This also ensures the curtains fall beautifully and adds an extra sense of grandeur The five metre length drapes have a luxurious formal appearance with our goblet curtain heading and button embellishments The tiebacks frame the large scale windows and were intentionally made to fit tighter than usual so more of a ballooning effect is achieved when holding the drapes to the sides Consistency has been maintained throughout the home in the fabrics decorative poles and hold backs to ensure there is a link between each room across the two levels Elegant hold backs have been mounted to the walls and work to fit the drapes elegantly in place and tie in with the poles given the windows long drops The simplicity of soft roman blinds was combined with the fresh softness of sheer curtains in the guest bedrooms walk in robe and bathroom To ensure a complete block out and maximise insulation benefits the blinds were lined and installed outside the recess of the windows White sheers layered across the roman blinds glisten in the sun with our knife pleat curtain heading adding a modern and tailored look and allowing a flat finish when the curtains are drawn closed The sheers also add privacy during the day when the blinds are drawn open to let light into the rooms Curtain Ideas for Formal Living and Dining Rooms In the formal living and dining rooms curtains were designed with a reverse pleat heading which creates a tailored appearance hanging below decorative rods Flat Austrians were chosen for the formal living room to add a decorative finish designed with a small amount of gather due to the closeness of the three large windows Adding lining was an essential element when designing the home s window coverings The Dollar Curtains Blinds lining used provides insulation for the home trapping the heat in during winter and blocking it out in summer and assists in reducing outside noise The lining also protects the fabrics from fading or deteriorating from sun damage extending the life of the window coverings and allowing the clients to capitalise on their investment In addition to all of these practical benefits our lining also added aesthetic benefits Backing the curtains with lining creates an improved drape with increased fullness allowing for a luxurious finish All the different window coverings were also lined with the same type and colour lining to ensure uniformity to the exterior appearance of the home while allowing a broad choice of textures weaves and colours for the interior In the ensuite the clients wanted to take advantage of the high windows and allow as much natural light to filter into the room as possible as well as ensure the beautiful bush views weren t obstructed To meet the brief we have installed our plantation shutters only across the bottom half of the window panes This ensures privacy for the bathroom when in use with the adjustable panels but allows light to stream through the top windows and keep the bush views To create a similar look in your home contact the DCB team for a showroom or in home consultation More Instagram We Happy Customers View all reviews testimonials Dollar Curtains Blinds

Waverley I reviewed most of the curtain places in Melbourne by reading feedback on the internet and there seemed to be a lot of negative reviews on most curtain places so I really didn t know where to go I walked into dollar blinds and curtains in Glen Waverley and was met by Linda who was incredibly helpful and obviously had an extraordinary amount of knowledge regarding every detail of the curtains and blind industry I felt confident that I was in the right place From that moment on I enjoyed every visit to the shop to organise my curtains The ladies were so friendly and helpful particularly Sharon who went out of her way to help all customers and nothing was ever too much to ask Mehri was very helpful and patient when measuring up our house windows and answering my many questions and Suzanne was delightful when she came to assist with the installation I would highly recommend the Glen Waverley team to anyone I think people are very quick to make complaints but rarely

  • Curtain Products | Dollar Curtains And Blinds
    of the popular Bohemian inspired blog The Jungalow Blakeney relies on the use of a single colour to tie the patterns together This doesn t mean you have to pick the exact same hue but rather varying light and dark tones of the same base colour will also work harmoniously together with the diverse patterns Try this tip by matching the swirling pattern upholstery fabric of Maze Turquoise on your cushions or armchairs paired with Brussels Lagoon for your curtains to combine both in the same overarching blue scheme Tip 2 Choose a classic pattern across multiple surfaces Classic patterns such as stripes polka dots or the on trend chevron are timeless and have been used decade after decade in interior design The perk of these tried and tested patterns is that you are likely to find them in a wide range of surfaces not just commercial textiles Artworks for your walls ceramic vases candle stands rugs throws and even lamp shades can be found with striped dotted or chevron patterns adorning them This means you can layer the patterns throughout the room choosing the same print but in different thicknesses or fading aesthetics In the picture shown below the chevron print is brought out through a modern abstracted artwork for the wall as well as a crisp upholstery fabric on the cushions The triangular forms are echoed by the statement pendant light fixture and the delicate brass and copper wire basket displayed on the shelves Sheer curtain drapery basks the room in light showcasing the chevron pattern in all its glory Tip 3 Use scale to your advantage Interior Design Pro suggests playing with the scale of patterns experimenting with big and bold patterns beside small and delicate prints Although there is no strict rule of thumb most professionals will recommend not going beyond three to four different patterns when dabbling in scale as any more could become jarring and overwhelming Give this tip a whirl by choosing the bigger scale flowers on Poppy Fuchsia designer upholstery fabric with the tinier more delicate floral imagery of Litzy Mauve solid drapery fabric Tip 4 Balance with neutrals strategically It helps to soften prints and patterns with solid neutrals In an interview with House Beautiful designer Ashley Whittaker shared her top advice on how to strategically use solid neutrals to your advantage I always tell clients not to be scared of pattern said Ms Whittaker They ll look at six by six inch swatches tightly clustered on a table and say ooh wow that seems like a lot Of course I interspersed them with solids and neutrals For interspersing your prints stock up on versatile neutrals such as creme beige brown grey white or black commercial textiles Tip 5 Choose prints or patterns that match the style of your home design Is your interior decor more contemporary sleek and modern or antique vintage and rustic chic Patterns and prints will also fall into these two spectrums of style with some more futuristic and mod while others nodding to the past with ornate intricate line work The trick to succeeding with a modern scheme is to prioritise block colours and solid upholstery fabric in keeping with the minimalism vibe but to introduce one standout feature print The image shared below does exactly that the sofa rug cushions and furniture are all in single colours in block materials with not a single pattern anywhere in sight Instead one feature wallpaper with bold yellow and white prints ties into the rest of the decor by staying in the same overarching colour scheme but easily stands out from the rest of the room thanks to the pattern On the other hand a bohemian vintage look will clutter and clash as many different earthy organic prints such as leaves and plants with bold vibrant colours both

embellishments adorn the windows in each room to transfor this home In this Melbourne home Dollar Curtains Blinds designed and installed drapes sheer curtains roman blinds sunscreen roller blinds plantation shutters and custom window seat cushions Situated in Wonga Park the DCB team has truly put the finishing touches on this amazing family home Elegant Curtain Ideas for Your Living Room The main living room curtains were the ideal choice to ensure the best possible insulation with so much glass The long length drapes further accentuate the dramatic effect of the two story high windows Dollar Curtains Blinds have installed the curtains higher above the windows and designed them to hang gathered on the floor so that the curtains keep in proportion to the large expanses of glass and further increase the height of the windows This also ensures the curtains fall beautifully and adds an extra sense of grandeur The five metre length drapes have a luxurious formal appearance with our goblet curtain heading and button embellishments The tiebacks frame the large scale windows and were intentionally made to fit tighter than usual so more of a ballooning effect is achieved when holding the drapes to the sides Consistency has been maintained throughout the home in the fabrics decorative poles and hold backs to ensure there is a link between each room across the two levels Elegant hold backs have been mounted to the walls and work to fit the drapes elegantly in place and tie in with the poles given the windows long drops The simplicity of soft roman blinds was combined with the fresh softness of sheer curtains in the guest bedrooms walk in robe and bathroom To ensure a complete block out and maximise insulation benefits the blinds were lined and installed outside the recess of the windows White sheers layered across the roman blinds glisten in the sun with our knife pleat curtain heading adding a modern and tailored look and allowing a flat finish when the curtains are drawn closed The sheers also add privacy during the day when the blinds are drawn open to let light into the rooms Curtain Ideas for Formal Living and Dining Rooms In the formal living and dining rooms curtains were designed with a reverse pleat heading which creates a tailored appearance hanging below decorative rods Flat Austrians were chosen for the formal living room to add a decorative finish designed with a small amount of gather due to the closeness of the three large windows Adding lining was an essential element when designing the home s window coverings The Dollar Curtains Blinds lining used provides insulation for the home trapping the heat in during winter and blocking it out in summer and assists in reducing outside noise The lining also protects the fabrics from fading or deteriorating from sun damage extending the life of the window coverings and allowing the clients to capitalise on their investment In addition to all of these practical benefits our lining also added aesthetic benefits Backing the curtains with lining creates an improved drape with increased fullness allowing for a luxurious finish All the different window coverings were also lined with the same type and colour lining to ensure uniformity to the exterior appearance of the home while allowing a broad choice of textures weaves and colours for the interior In the ensuite the clients wanted to take advantage of the high windows and allow as much natural light to filter into the room as possible as well as ensure the beautiful bush views weren t obstructed To meet the brief we have installed our plantation shutters only across the bottom half of the window panes This ensures privacy for the bathroom when in use with the adjustable panels but allows light to stream through the top windows and keep the bush views To create a similar look in your home contact the DCB team for a showroom or in home consultation More Instagram We Happy Customers View all reviews

    patterns have the power to completely transform and elevate a space into a chic interior It s simply a matter of carefully and tastefully curating the patterns so they work seamlessly together in a complementary manner It can understandably be tricky to master mixing and matching patterns from the get go many interior designers hone these very skills over a career while others have an instinctive natural aptitude for pairing prints No matter which end of the spectrum you fall on there are universal tips and tricks to succeed in this styling process Here are a few of these backed by industry professionals Tip 1 Rely on a cohesive colour palette To find the balance between matchy matchy and clashing it s all about choosing an overarching colour palette suggests interior stylist

Effortless Elegance Friday February 26 2016 When it comes to impact warm textured fabrics elegant shapes and luxe embellishments adorn the windows in each room to transfor this home In this Mel Read more When it comes to impact warm textured fabrics elegant shapes and luxe embellishments adorn the windows in each room to transfor this home In this Melbourne home Dollar Curtains Blinds designed and installed drapes sheer curtains roman blinds sunscreen roller blinds plantation shutters and custom window seat cushions Situated in Wonga Park the DCB team has truly put the finishing touches on this amazing family home Elegant Curtain Ideas for Your Living Room The main living room curtains were the ideal choice to ensure the best possible insulation with so much glass The long length drapes further accentuate the dramatic effect of the two story high windows Dollar Curtains Blinds have installed the curtains higher above the windows and designed them to hang gathered on the floor so that the curtains keep in proportion to the large expanses of glass and further increase the height of the windows This also ensures the curtains fall beautifully and adds an extra sense of grandeur The five metre length drapes have a luxurious formal appearance with our goblet curtain heading and button embellishments The tiebacks frame the large scale windows and were intentionally made to fit tighter than usual so more of a ballooning effect is achieved when holding the drapes to the sides Consistency has been maintained throughout the home in the fabrics decorative poles and hold backs to ensure there is a link between each room across the two levels Elegant hold backs have been mounted to the walls and work to fit the drapes elegantly in place and tie in with the poles given the windows long drops The simplicity of soft roman blinds was combined with the fresh softness of sheer curtains in the guest bedrooms walk in robe and bathroom To ensure a complete block out and maximise insulation benefits the blinds were lined and installed outside the recess of the windows White sheers layered across the roman blinds glisten in the sun with our knife pleat curtain heading adding a modern and tailored look and allowing a flat finish when the curtains are drawn closed The sheers also add privacy during the day when the blinds are drawn open to let light into the rooms Curtain Ideas for Formal Living and Dining Rooms In the formal living and dining rooms curtains were designed with a reverse pleat heading which creates a tailored appearance hanging below decorative rods Flat Austrians were chosen for the formal living room to add a decorative finish designed with a small amount of gather due to the closeness of the three large windows Adding lining was an essential element when designing the home s window coverings The Dollar Curtains Blinds lining used provides insulation for the home trapping the heat in during winter and blocking it out in summer and assists in reducing outside noise The lining also protects the fabrics from fading or deteriorating from sun damage extending the life of the window coverings and allowing the clients to capitalise on their investment In addition to all of these practical benefits our lining also added aesthetic benefits Backing the curtains with lining creates an improved drape with increased fullness allowing for a luxurious finish All the different window coverings were also lined with the same type and colour lining to ensure uniformity to the exterior appearance of the home while allowing a broad choice of textures weaves and colours for the interior In the ensuite the clients wanted to take advantage of the high windows and allow as much natural light to filter into the room as possible as well as ensure the beautiful bush views weren t obstructed To meet the brief we have installed our plantation shutters only across the bottom half of the window panes This ensures privacy for the bathroom when in use with the adjustable panels but allows light to stream through the top windows and keep the bush views To create a similar look in your home contact the DCB team

    from prints and patterns Whil Read more Here are some tips from our fabric wholesaler Charles Parsons Interiors on how best to mix and match patterns Don t shy away from prints and patterns While it may seem less of a risk to stick to a neutral colour scheme or monochromatic palette prints and patterns have the power to completely transform and elevate a space into a chic interior It s simply a matter of carefully and tastefully curating the patterns so they work seamlessly together in a complementary manner It can understandably be tricky to master mixing and matching patterns from the get go many interior designers hone these very skills over a career while others have an instinctive natural aptitude for pairing prints No matter which end of the spectrum you fall on there are universal tips and tricks to succeed in this styling process Here are a few of these backed by industry professionals Tip 1 Rely on a cohesive colour palette To find the balance between matchy matchy and clashing it s all about choosing an overarching colour palette suggests interior stylist Justina Blakeney in an interview with Architectural Digest As the author and owner of the popular Bohemian inspired blog The Jungalow Blakeney relies on the use of a single colour to tie the patterns together This doesn t mean you have to pick the exact same hue but rather varying light and dark tones of the same base colour will also work harmoniously together with the diverse patterns Try this tip by matching the swirling pattern upholstery fabric of Maze Turquoise on your cushions or armchairs paired with Brussels Lagoon for your curtains to combine both in the same overarching blue scheme Tip 2 Choose a classic pattern across multiple surfaces Classic patterns such as stripes polka dots or the on trend chevron are timeless and have been used decade after decade in interior design The perk of these tried and tested patterns is that you are likely to find them in a wide range of surfaces not just commercial textiles Artworks for your walls ceramic vases candle stands rugs throws and even lamp shades can be found with striped dotted or chevron patterns adorning them This means you can layer the patterns throughout the room choosing the same print but in different thicknesses or fading aesthetics In the picture shown below the chevron print is brought out through a modern abstracted artwork for the wall as well as a crisp upholstery fabric on the cushions The triangular forms are echoed by the statement pendant light fixture and the delicate brass and copper wire basket displayed on the shelves Sheer curtain drapery basks the room in light showcasing the chevron pattern in all its glory Tip 3 Use scale to your advantage Interior Design Pro suggests playing with the scale of patterns experimenting with big and bold patterns beside small and delicate prints Although there is no strict rule of thumb most professionals will recommend not going beyond three to four different patterns when dabbling in scale as any more could become jarring and overwhelming Give this tip a whirl by choosing the bigger scale flowers on Poppy Fuchsia designer upholstery fabric with the tinier more delicate floral imagery of Litzy Mauve solid drapery fabric Tip 4 Balance with neutrals strategically It helps to soften prints and patterns with solid neutrals In an interview with House Beautiful designer Ashley Whittaker shared her top advice on how to strategically use solid neutrals to your advantage I always tell clients not to be scared of pattern said Ms Whittaker They ll look at six by six inch swatches tightly clustered on a table and say ooh wow that seems like a lot Of course I interspersed them with solids and neutrals For interspersing your prints stock up on versatile neutrals such as creme beige brown grey white or black commercial textiles Tip 5 Choose prints or patterns that match the style of your home design Is your interior decor more contemporary sleek and modern or antique vintage and rustic chic Patterns and prints will also fall into these two spectrums of style with some more futuristic and mod while others nodding to the past with ornate intricate line work The trick to succeeding with a modern scheme is to prioritise block colours and solid upholstery fabric in keeping with the minimalism vibe but to introduce one standout feature print The image shared below does exactly that the sofa rug cushions and furniture are all in single colours in block materials with not a single pattern anywhere in sight Instead one feature wallpaper with bold yellow and white prints ties into the rest of the decor by staying in the same overarching colour scheme but easily stands out from the rest of the room thanks to the pattern On the other hand a bohemian vintage look will clutter and clash as many different earthy organic prints such as leaves and plants with bold vibrant colours both looks have their own value and impact so
