Keep Cool This Summer With Our Linen Furnishing Fabrics

Click on the text in Orange to take you to the relevant website pages.

Linen is the ideal and essential Summer fabric. When the sun is shining at its brightest and hottest, keeping cool can be a difficult task, but wearing linen clothes helps out by allowing our skin to breathe. It doesn’t stick and it doesn’t cling, and best of all it looks fresh and crisp and exceedingly chic. Style with linen and you won’t regret it, especially when it’s hot, humid out there.

If all this applies to our clothing, then why not take the same approach when it comes to your interior home décor? Natural looking linen fabrics can make a huge difference and bring the light, summery, cheerful feeling of long, carefree days into the home.

These fabrics are made of natural flax fibres, and they bring a stylish yet rustic look to your rooms. It’s serene, and it’s cool. Still got those dark and heavy winter fabrics on display? It’s time to swap them over for linen and linen blend – you’ll love the difference, and you will immediately feel more comfortable.

If you’re searching for the perfect linen furnishing fabric, look no further than UK Curtains and Interiors. We’ve got the perfect choice of woven, printed and embroidered linen and linen blend fabrics to give your home the summer makeover it deserves.

There’s our 100% linen Stockholm fabric, a big, bold check in a number of different colours that is perfect for a Scandinavian look – try simple unlined curtains in this design; Or the Ogee embroidered fabric, a mix of 70% viscose and 30% linen, in soft muted tones. If you are looking for a plain linen fabric in a wide range of colours, check out Belgraviadaffodil, coral, putty, ocean, teal, and fuchsia are just some of the fantastic shades available in this versatile plain.

Get Your Outdoor Space Ready for Summer

Click on the text in Orange to take you to the relevant website pages.

It’s that time of year again; the time of year when everyone bemoans the fact that they didn’t think about their outdoor space before barbecue season… they didn’t work out just how to make it stand out from the other patios and lawns in the area… they didn’t realise how to maximise the space however small it might be.

Now is the perfect time to get your outdoor space ready for the summer – no matter what the size, no matter where the sun sets in relation to it or if  you’re overlooked by the neighbours (good, we say, let’s show them what a bit of planning and some exterior design can really do). This year, why not make your garden your own (without having to get your hands dirty or your thumbs particularly green) by creating your very own gorgeous seating areas for your family, friends, or even just yourself? It’s not as hard as it sounds, and with UK Curtains and Interiors to guide you, we are sure it will be a success.

Hard lawn chairs are a terrible summer strain on backs and bottoms, so before your guests start twisting and turning and leaving early, think about investing in cushions or seat pads to make your garden furniture super comfortable. Or get creative and make comfy, stylish bespoke cushions with our fantastic fabrics. And those marvellously creative cushions don’t have to be just for chairs either. There is nothing more summery than a scattering of large floor cushions strewn around the garden to recline upon and soak up the sun’s rays, and for children’s parties these are perfect!

Upcycled Interior - image from Indulgy

Revamp Your Home With Upcycling

Click on the text in Orange to take you to the relevant website pages.

Upcycling – taking old furniture and giving it a new lease of life which is often better than the original – is all the rage, but this is one fad that we think has staying power. In this age of austerity, it isn’t always possible to buy new pieces when our old chairs and sofas have given all they’ve got, but the desire to furnish our homes with ‘nice things’ has never left us.

So to satisfy both our wallets and the aesthetic appeal of our homes, upcycling is the way to go.

Just by re-upholstering a chair with eye catching fabric, or re-covering a cushion with some cool patterns, you can change the look of your home for a fraction of the cost of buying new. And at UK Curtains and Interiors we’ve got plenty of choice when it comes to buying material by the metre; whether you want floral designs, bold striking geometric shapes, blocks of colour, or more muted, retro chic, you will find it in our fabrics range.

 

What about using your old curtains to give your dining furniture a change of look? It’s better than throwing them out, and will save you money; you’ll be able to buy new ones from UK Curtains and Interiors and waste nothing in the process! Why not take a look at our Made to Measure Curtains section for further ideas.

 

Or how about taking those old cushion covers and creating a patchwork headboard? Stich them together, using foam for padding, and voila! Your bedroom will look chic and classy, and all for a few pennies rather than pounds.

ExperimentWithYourInteriorColour

Experiment With Colour for your next Interior Project

Click on the text in Orange to take you to the relevant website pages.

Did you realise that you are subconsciously gathering colour palettes around you every day? Every time you go shopping, every time you choose your clothes, even down to spotting what looks like the perfect photo opportunity or meal… Almost every choice you make is down to the colours that you are naturally draw to. Don’t believe it? Next time you have to choose between, say, chocolate or strawberry ice cream, have a think afterwards about the things you’ve seen, places you’ve been, and the colours that have been there. You’ll be surprised at the results.

The fun, exciting thing about this subconscious collecting of colour is that it only becomes apparent at a later date. Your mind is telling you what it needs you to know in order to work out what colours will work best in your home, your clothing, and every other aspect of your life. We’ve already talked about how important colours are to creating the right mood, so why wouldn’t your brain point you in the direction of the colours that match what it’s going through?

In trying to work out exactly how your colour choices are coming together, try this experiment in your day to day life. The first thing to do is to try and spot themes developing and be aware of the subconscious decisions you are making about colour. Pinterest is great for this – start your own pinterest page and collate images on boards – see if you can see any common colours emerging in the images you have pinned. When you know how your colour palettes work and you’ve discovered what colours work well together through this, that’s when you can add the conscious decision making to the unconscious choices, and really make those ideas work in your home. Even if it’s a fabric you would never have considered before!

Another fabulous way to play with colour is to try the ones you’re not naturally drawn to. It sounds totally wrong, but it does work. Not only will it contrast wonderfully with the colours you do like, but you might just see those previously hated hues in a new light. On the right wall, in the right room, with the right décor and accessories, you might just fall in love with a colour you never expected even to like. Try it!

Want to really get your personality across in a colour scheme? Just use the one hue… What’s your favourite? Purple? Blue? Green?  Whatever it is, your chosen colour doesn’t come in just one shade. There are thousands of different variations of your favourite colour out there, and by just tweaking the hue you can discover an abundance of different shades.

The great thing about the UK Curtains and Interiors online shop is that you can filter the fabric options by colour group so once you have homed in on a colour scheme you can view all fabrics we offer in that colour palette – this will help you narrow down your choice. Order up to 6 free samples to help you make a final decision and if you still feel the fabric is not quite right why not ask one of our designers for advice.

Yellow and Grey Montage final

Our July Colour Story of the Month – Yellow and Grey

Click on the text in Orange to take you to the relevant website pages.

This year Pantone, the world authority on colour, presented “Custard Yellow” as a key colour for 2015. This shade of yellow is mellow and warm and will instantly put you in a good mood.

Grey is warm yet cool, graceful and eternally modern. Grey sits in any palette and is also the perfect backdrop for any scheme

Fabric designs featuring combinations of Soft Yellows, Grey and off white or cream are ideal for creating an elegant interior space that will be absolutely on trend this summer. Adding pops of yellow to an otherwise fairly neutral grey scheme, will bring radiance and energy into your room.

The Ersilia and Nerina designs from Clarke and Clarke in our opinion, are the perfect furnishing fabrics for this look. Digitally printed onto a velvet ground, these watercolour florals are elegant and timeless and suitable for curtains, roman blinds, cushions (the larger the better) or even upholstery. Why not cover an occasional chair with Ersilia Chartreuse or one of the other designs from the Artiste Collection to make a real statement.

Click to view Ersilia, Mosaic, Palette, and Nerina

Keep the rest of the furniture plain to add contrast and avoid pattern overload. Balance the look with plain or textured fabrics in yellow and grey, picking out the key hues from the feature design and don’t be afraid to add different patterns in smaller quantities to make your scheme really unique.

If you are worried about committing to fabric designs featuring this colour combination as the main focus or your scheme or don’t want patterned curtains, thinking you may tire of it or that it will date, use grey as your key colour using various shades for the difficult to change elements, in your room – furniture, walls, and sofas for example. You can then introduce yellow as the accent colour with hard and soft accessories such as vases and cushions, fresh flowers and even occasional chairs or a roman blind.

A neutral scheme with a touch of yellow

Then, when you are ready for a new look it will be relatively quick easy to change the accent colour and create a brand new scheme. You don’t have to spend a fortune either – browse thrift shops and second hand websites for accessories in your chosen accent colour and invest your money in a small quantity of beautiful fabric. Scatter cushions are quick and easy to make with just a couple of metres of fabric. Roman blinds also require far less fabric than a curtain. Take a look at our made to measure roman blinds and see how competitive our prices are.

Whatever fabrics you decide on and however you use them, a Grey and Yellow interior will be sure to impress. Visit UK Curtains and Interiors for more inspiration.
