The epitome of an English Country décor is based on a cottage garden in the spring and summer, so curtains or blinds made of pretty floral prints in a mixture of warm and cool colours will make a good starting point to build the rest of the décor around, ensuring your home is a warm and comfortable place to be.
Fitting blinds and curtains to the same window not only gives more impact to your decor, but also gives the choice of having good levels of light and privacy control offered by the blind and the fabulous imput of a stunning pair of curtains that can remain “dressed” to the side of the window, making life easier in the mornings when all that is needed is a pull of the blind cord instead of having to re-arrange your curtains.
If curtains are your preferred choice of window treatment for a more informal look, then keep to a fairly simple curtain heading such as eyelet curtains. Make sure that subtle details such as the eyelet rings of the curtains match the metal finish of the curtain pole, such details may appear trivial, but after years of furnishing and dressing out show homes, I know that the smallest of details that “no-one will notice” in fact makes the difference between a perfect finish and just another show home.
We have a large selection of eyelet curtain poles such as the Speedy Eyelet Curtain Pole
A quick scan of the internet shows that most “foreigners” consider a typical English décor is achieved by a visit to the local second hand furniture shops and buying a jumble of odd bits of furniture, especially in pine, some nic nacs – and of course anything Laura Ashley or heavily floral will be fine.
Some people in their quest for an English décor completely miss the point.
Neutral decors are often favoured by chic city dwellers, but city living can be crowded and grey and without a garden, uplifting colours such as green, yellow, blue, lilac and pink will lighten the mood and ambience of the room.
And for a Spring feeling if you are not inclined to change your decor, all it may take is just a bunch of daffodils and a walk in the country.
