Fabric essentially is the blend of colour and texture with design to create atmosphere that reflects the style and mood of a room.

When deciding to contrast or compliment consider that 75% of a room’s colour (including walls and floors) should be the main colour with 15% to 20% as your secondary colour and 10% as the accent colour. To visually expand a room, keep the colour contrast between walls and windows low. To make the room feel cosier use higher levels of contrast.

Generally blend your window treatment with wall colours if you want other elements and furniture in the room to be the feature. Use neutral and soft pastels to create a sense of calm and give an illusion of height, bolder colours play can down a room’s height.

Most fabrics most can be used on other blind types rollers, roman and panels glides to maintain your continuity of colour and texture through out your house, ask your consultant for further advice.
