White wooden blinds - interior styling guide
White wooden venetian blinds are having a fashion moment in the UK, brightening up reception rooms across the land. It's not just their sleek look buyers are drawn to. Venetian blinds have a unique tilt-slat system that allows light flow even when the shade is closed. This enables privacy and light - a huge advantage for homes with street-facing rooms.
Although venetians are available in a range of colours and materials, it's white wooden blinds that have caught the eye of the fashion pack. Below we've listed a few of our favourite examples from Instagram of how our blinds have been used in your homes.
@sophie_shakespeare has chosen a crisp white blind to match her walls and furniture. This allows her ornaments - the monstera plant, candles and pots - to take the spotlight. She's even chosen a white wooden blind without tapes for maximum neutrality.
Mix 'n' match patts
We're huge fans of this home scene from @houseinthemiddle. Although the space has a casual, thrown together feel it's actually very cleverly matched. The black and white cushion patterns pair with the light and shadowed slats from the bay window white wooden blinds, to make a harmonious living space.
Space age shades
On the other end of the trend spectrum, @laurynshome has used white wood blinds with cloth tape to create a clean and streamlined kitchen space you'd feel confident eating off the floor of. Polished Corian worktops bring out the brilliant white of the kitchen sink, while high-beam overhead lights quite literally put our gleaming blinds in the spotlight.
Here's another example of how our blinds have been used to echo the shapes around them. In this case, @baytree_house has used white wooden blinds to mirror the metro tiles that wall her bathroom. The white tapes on the blind divide the slats into rectangles to accentuate the similarity. A moulded pelmet above the blind breaks the space to keep things from feeling too 'pixellated'.
We're seeing more and more buyers choosing white wood blinds with black tape. This example by @renovating_trentview is particularly clever as the contrast tape has been used to unite the two different wall colours in the room. The contrast tape also adds a talking point to the blinds itself - it's a venetian that won't be ignored!
While the fashion for layering textures passed critical mass a couple of years back, the emerging 'maximalism' trend looks set to revive it. Contrast fabrics add a sense of luxe to a room, as in @home.ideology's lounge. The sunny slats of our real wood white blinds play in to this textured look, for a picture that almost comes off the page.
