Sprucing Up Your Home This Autumn With Apollo Blinds

In the Autumn I like to think about sprucing my home up. It's the perfect time of year, just before Christmas, and by injecting some freshness with new furnishings and fittings, your home will get a transformation in no time, ready for the busy Christmas period.

This year the cool Autumn trends in colours are inky blues, amethyst and terracotta. 

Inky blue hues, amethyst and terracotta have been trending all year. Inky blue is a versatile colour and fits well with tones of sage green and grey colourways whilst rich amethyst shades will bring warmth to a colour scheme. With both these colours, metallic and silver shades will compliment the shades perfectly, whilst crystal accessories will lighten it all up. Another trending colour is terracotta, and this is the perfect colour to create a cosy welcoming home when mixed with warm amber, citrine and tourmaline hues.

Now, something I really need for my home this Autumn is new blinds. The blinds in my office are old and beige and are totally not me. An injection of colour would be the perfect way to show my personality and bring our home bang up-to-date.  For our bedroom, I would be looking at a floral print to match a duvet cover I have and for the lounge a cream, beige and brown design to coordinate with the muted natural tones of the furnishings I have. This is where You Choose from Apollo Blinds comes in. 

You Choose is a bespoke roller and roman blinds service, from Apollo Blinds, one of the UK's largest providers of made-to-measure blinds. 

The service allows you to choose from a massive selection of over 270 materials in their soft cloth blind range. Want a roller blind in this seasons must have inky blue colour? No problem. Want a Roman blind in a leaf and flower print? Of course! What about a simple black and white stripe? Easy to do. If you want a funky print for your child's bedroom you can have that too.

You Choose also work with iconic home designer brands such as Cath Kidston, Orla Kiely and Josef Frank, so you have the designer look, with a made-to-measure service and no expensive mistakes that can happen when you make your own blinds at home. In fact, I wouldn't know where to start with making my own blinds, I've been to three sewing classes and I still can't sew! That's the genius of the You Choose blinds. You get a bespoke made-to-measure service, so blinds for any shape window, even difficult sizes, with the most amazing array and choice of fabric.   Even if you can't find the pattern you like in their range they will go out of their way to help you find that perfect design that will coordinate with everything.

The Apollo Blinds You Choose service starts from £84 and I think is a reasonable price for that luxury service. The only problem with the You Choose service is which design to pick!  

Let me know, would you use a service like this? What style of print would you have on a bespoke blind?
