For fans of bold and brash design, English Blinds have just launched a flamboyant range of pop art inspired designer roman blinds. This new collection consists of 24 designs influenced by the pop art movement of the 1950’s and 60’s and features iconic archive imagery from the period. You can take a trip along the Cote-D’Azure in a vintage Fiat 500 surrounded by glamorous models, summer dresses and cool martinis. Look fabulous amongst some European pop art chic with Warhol inspired fashion portraits scattered with French and Italian quotations. Get the Mod style with a classic scooter, go for a spin in a Mini Cooper or relax amongst the colourful poppies, parrots and tropical fruits.

The exuberant collage of imagery is infused with a combination of film noire-esque monochrome hues and hot high impact colourways to create an incredibly distinctive and vibrant look. With the essence of the collection being glamour, elegance and retro meets contemporary, along with all the playfulness you get with pop art styling, they are a great way to bring excitement to a room’s décor and even take the why-so-serious out of a more formal setting.
Pop Art Vino
Pop Art Jazz
A touch edgy and maybe even a little contentious, these fabulously funky roman blinds from the team at English Blinds, whether they’re your style or not, are certainly once seen never forgotten.

Vega Architecture’s design for the Busch Home in Lakewood, CO is a wonderful example of how a sunken living room can still maintain a sleek, modern look. By keeping the depth of the pit fairly shallow and using furniture with clean, wooden lines, the space still feels light and airy. A pop of warm, lighter colored carpeting also creates a nice texture change when paired with the harder but more durable tile used on the higher level. When Amber Flooring installed their engineered prefinished square edge Stilnovo-Afrormosia planks throughout the Los Gatos home, they didn’t forget the living area’s conversation pit. Now the space is lined with the warm material, making it the perfect spot to curl up around the fireplace.
And one of my all-time favorite shelf styling tricks is to display plants on the top layer of shelving, which will draw the eye upward, as well as create height and drama. Below we see shelf-top plants in a tour of my retro-modern home office. Last but not least, we shine the spotlight on the challenging task of styling kids’ room shelving, drawing inspiration from the product photography of The Land of Nod. The Zero Gravity Wall Shelf below illustrates a perfect balance of practicality and design flair, mixing carefully placed toys with books in eye-catching colors.
