Give me a virtual interior design tool and that’s me occupied for the next couple of
days hours, especially ones that let me alter paint colours and soft furnishing at the click of a button.
The team over at blind specialists Style Studio reached out recently to introduce their latest innovation, Design Space – a virtual platform where you can see and compare window coverings in a variety of rooms and window types, as well as change the wall colours to suit the room you’re looking to emulate. Style Studio, for those that are unfamiliar, offers a huge range of blinds from pleated to roman to vertical, in a variation of fabrics, prints and colours.
From bathrooms to living rooms, kitchens, dining rooms, and even a loft apartment (of course I was going to style this!), you’re able to pick your particular style of decor, whether it be contemporary, classic etc and start visualising how your chosen blinds could look in a similar space.
You can see by the tool allowing me to change the wall colour slightly, how well the roman blinds in Boulevard Heather work so well within this now slightly darker space. Can this be my room please?!
Below I’ve demonstrated how the tool can also show you what doesn’t work in certain spaces, such as venetian blinds in a modern living room such as this. However, this kind of blind does work well in kitchens and bathrooms, with smaller window spaces.
Moving on from the living room, there are a number of bathrooms to virtually decorate and I love how chic these Linear Weave roller blinds in silver look. Roller blinds are great to be able to allow as much light in as you need, all the while offering privacy in a matter of seconds when wanted.
In all honesty, I was curious as to which room set-up could possibly make vertical blinds work. They remind me so much of my old office, but aside from the conservatory, was there another room they could sit well in? Who’d have thought Glint Black vertical blinds would have looked so good in an industrial style loft! I love how these tie the room together, although if I had crittal windows like these, I wouldn’t be covering them with a single ounce of dust, never mind blinds.
Not only does Style Studio allow you to plan your blinds before you buy, the brand also offers customers the chance to order up to five free samples so you can see prints, patterns, and colours in the comfort of your own home. It’s frustrating seeing a colour on a computer screen and then it being completely different under natural light, so ordering samples take away that stress and hassle. Once you’ve decided on a chosen design, you can find your local stockist of the blinds by entering your postcode right here – I was surprised to see I had five stockists in my local area alone!
I’d love for you to test the new Design Space feature of Style Studio and send me your designs on Twitter at @victoria_aptno4! I’ve been playing with this for ages and I’m excited to see what you might create too.
