Make your Office an Oasis of Joy

1 Jun

An impossibility but adding blue to the decor may well help – blue generally symbolizes harmony, peace and happiness and it has been proven that people are more productive and creative in a blue room making it a good colour choice for offices, but you are best keeping to lighter shades of blue as a darker blue can become depressing and have a negative effect – not congenial for a pleasant or productive working atmosphere.

Blinds especially Roller Blinds are especially effective for windows in offices as they give greater control over the general ambience of the room, dealing with both privacy issues and daylight and/or sunlight levels. 

BLUE IS BEAUTIFUL – IT’S BRITAIN’S FAVOURITE COLOUR

This stunning Acacia blue vertical blind will ensure privacy, light and to a certain degree, temperature control. Many vertical blinds are also available as roller blinds, so should you wish to use a combination of blind types, then this option is available.

As blue is one of the three primary colours, it can mix with other colours to create a completely different colour – known as a secondary colours, good examples remembered from our school days being blue and yellow make green and blue and red make purple.  Bright blue used either for the walls or window treatments as the dominant colour will benefit from the use of a lighter hue as an accent colour.

A really dominent blue is best used in isolation for a focal wall for although blue is very adaptable, all the walls painted in deep blue will bring in the walls, making the room feel oppressive. A single deep blue wall will however have the effect of making the wall receed, expanding the dimensions of the room.

Think outside the box

26 May

Blue is another primary colour  but needs careful thought before you introduce it as your feature colour – never consider it for example in a dark north facing room.

Blue is still our favourite colour in the U.K., a calming soothing colour ideal for blinds and curtains.  We are so familiar with blue as it surrounds our very being, blue sky, sea and flowers to mention just a few examples. It also is a Mediterranean colour conjuring up memories of sun-drenched beaches – a real mood lifter especially on a dreary day. Light is inseparable from colour, so a vibrant tone will help your home to look more spacious.

ULTRA MODERN LOOK - NOT FOR THE FAINT HEARTED

Blue is a calming, soothing colour; great for bedrooms as it is said to prevent nightmares, bathrooms for its relaxing properties and studies as it also is linked to promoting intellectual thought. Care is required in the selection of the tone of blue as it can look chilly and unwelcoming. Try to select a blue with warm colour undertones such as this fabulous living room, the slightly softer turquoise hues providing plenty of inspiration for both window treatments and home accessories.

A statement feature wall with a high impact wallcovering introduces scope for an imaginative approach to your style of window finish. Whilst curtains always make the most impact, there are certain styles of decor such as modern contemporary that perhaps only call for a minimal blind.

AN APPEALING COLOUR FOR A MINIMAL WINDOW

Metal Venetian Blinds such as this fabulous kingfisher blue blind will become an intrinsic part of the wall if you colour match the blind, allowing for an easy look window treatment which also has many practical advantages such as filtering the light and heat entering the room. If you have decided on a blue carpet as part of your scheme, you will definately need some kind of window blind, preferable a Vertical Blind to protect the carpet from the fading effects of the sun – always far more noticable with a dark coloured carpet.
