Trends for blinds and colour forecast for 2014

Happy New Year to all our clients, we look forward to providing you stylish and functional curtains, blinds, awnings and more in 2014!

A new year always brings a new colour forecast and this year’s hot colours include Pantone’s Radiant Orchid and Turquoise.

Radiant Orchid is Pantone’s Colour of the Year which is best used as an accent colour. We are also loving the deep, saturated Turquoise colour for blinds.

Turquoise is particularly a great choice for residents along the Surf Coast because it has a ‘beachy’ vibe – yet the deep versions this year remain classy and strong.

Rainsfords says ‘colour and pattern’ will be trending in 2014. Their tip for choosing colours or patterns for your curtains and blinds? Follow your heart and go with the one that first catches your eye!

Overthinking it may lead to a regretful purchase.

Design Online has compiled a list of five of the top trends for interior design in 2014. Here’s a round-up of their top five:

  • Tropicana (think bananas and flamingos!)
  • Window sheers
  • Pantone Radiant Orchid and Turquoise
  • Dark Accent Walls
  • Vintage Wonders

View the full descriptions of their top five trends.

Not sure where to start looking? Zepel Fabrics are known for embracing colours, patterns and texture.
