Idyl Wilde – modern farmhouse, rustic, contemporary.


In the landscape of design, ‘Idyl Wilde’ emerges as a captivating blend of rustic simplicity and contemporary flair, offering a fresh interpretation of modern farmhouse aesthetics. Inspired by the serenity of rural life, this style perfectly combines rustic warmth with clean lines, presenting a potential evolution of the timeless Hamptons look into a lasting design trend.


A palette of neutral tones with hints of muted colours establishes a serene, yet welcoming ambience within spaces adorned with the Idyl Wilde style. This aesthetic embraces patterns, vintage textiles, and layered textures, resulting in interiors that exude a sense of lived in sophisticated and effortless chic.

The colour palette for this style features muted tones with earthy influences, including warm mochas and pistachio greens paired with honey and eucalyptus greys. Accents of warming burgundy alongside chalked brown-black and soft warmed greys add depth and character.


Shapes and textures play a vital role in defining the character of Idyl Wilde. Romantic and soft elements coexist with touches of enchanting whimsy, creating a harmonious juxtaposition of delicate contracts against muted hues and solid, grounding furnishings.

Gimme Shelter – bold, glamour, nostalgia.


In the world of interiors, the ‘Gimmie Shelter’ trend unfolds as a captivating fusion of 1970’s and 1930’s influence, creating spaces imbued with warmth and nostalgia. This unique amalgamation blends the bold colours, geometric patterns, and organic textures reminiscent of the 70’s with the refined glamour, curved lines, and luxurious materials characteristic of the 30’s.


By weaving together elements from these two distinctive eras, Gimmie Shelter infuses spaces with a sense of familiarity while also introducing a contemporary twist. This fusion produces furnishings that not only evokes nostalgia but also resonates with modern sensibilities.

The colour palette for this trend features rich tones such as caramel and brown, complemented by acid-based yellows, charred blacks, and warm dusty pinks. Accents of oranges and seaweed green add depth and vibrancy to the palette.


Shapes and textures play a pivotal role in defining the visual identity of spaces aligned with the Gimmie Shelter trend, Curved, bold shapes adorned with intricate patterns evoke a sense of vintage charm. The resurgence of stripes, both structured and abstract, along with wave patterns, adds further depth and dimension to décor embracing this trend.

  • Incorporate banding or trims across the top, bottom, or sides of your Curtains to add a decorative touch that echoes the eclectic charm and refined glamour of both eras.
  • Consider our Double Curtains, pairing combining a Blockout Curtain and Sheer Curtain on the one window for a well-designed and practical finish, as well as creating an intriguing play of light and texture, capturing the organic yet sophisticated vibe of the era fusion.

Rustic Reverence – organic, grounding, warm.


Within the dynamic realm of window coverings, authenticity and connection reign supreme. The trend toward natural aesthetics, rich textures, and organic shapes continues to provide a tranquil haven within interior design.


The colour palette echoes a soothing foundation with neutral tones, browns, muted greens, blues, and greys, complemented by accents of caramel, honey hues, and delicate hints of pink.

Embracing abundant textures imbues spaces with dept and warmth, encouraging tactile exploration and nurturing a sense of comfort and grounding. The emergence of the ‘modern rustic farmhouse’ aesthetic signals a compelling shift, potentially challenging the longstanding dominance of the Hamptons style in recent years.
