For months we’ve been proudly working with Hillarys on a fabulous new collection of fabrics for made-to-measure Roman blinds, curtains and linings.
Featuring bright tones, bold choices and plenty of daring finishing touches, the eye-catching range brings together Livingetc’s flair for design with Hillarys’ understanding of texture and use of quality materials.
Mahale curtains in Cobalt, from £263; Wild Roman blinds in Cobalt, from £189; with fringe in Rambutan, £15; cushion covers, from £29 each, all Hillarys x Livingetc
We started with the end – sort of. We always think that it’s the final flashes of excitement that make a room, and so we wanted to make sure that there were options for lining, fringing and piping that would allow you to be even more playful with these riotous designs.
A hint of chartreuse lining peeping out from behind a blue zebra-print curtain, or a pink edge to a leopard-print cushion, the options are almost endless. It means you can use the collection to add layers to your room, glimpses of pattern and colour that no one would expect.
Impala curtains in Ink, from £185, cushion covers, from £29 each, all Hillarys x Livingetc
It’s all loosely inspired by a trip to the Balearic Islands, a starting point that has evolved into hot colours, cool patterns, a feeling of fiesta and joy. You’ll find huge repeats that can cover vast windows, or smaller global prints ideal for cushions. There’s a versatility and modernity here, an understanding that Livingetc readers are confident enough to take these patterns and run with them.
It’s going to be exciting to see how you interpret the collection. We hope you love the fabrics as much as we do, and we can’t wait to see them in your home. Share your favourites with us on #hillarysxlivingetc
