Dress to impress – how to create a show-stopping window

Promotional feature with Hillarys

Using our walls to bring colour and pattern into our homes is easy, after all there’s a huge choice of wallpaper and paint available. However, if you truly want to give your home a considered, well-planned look, then you’ll be wise not to forget your windows – and that means dressing them in beautifully draped curtains and made-to-measure blinds.

Opting for a stand-out fabric and design is a no-brainer if you want to elevate your interior, which is where acclaimed artist and designer Margo Selby comes in. Known for her forward-thinking patterns, Margo has teamed up with expert window dressers Hillarys to produce an exclusive new collection of contemporary fabrics for curtains and roman blinds that will take your windows from drab to fab in an instant.

This capsule collection, due to launch on 12th October, is designed to add that all-important wow factor, with high-end materials in stunning mid-century modern designs – so you’ll be able to gain Margo’s signature style.

Indulging in the latest designs will keep your home feeling fresh and on trend – after all, when was the last time you invested in some quality window dressings where style was as key as their practicality?

With over 20 years in the textile industry, Margo’s philosophy has always been to focus on pushing the boundaries of weaving, and this collection is no different, with high-quality fabrics and fashion-forward style.

From geometric shapes to tailored pinstripes and wavy designs, you can make this look your own by opting for a lining of your choice to match or contrast with your chosen fabric, ensuring your window dressing looks just as good from the outside as it does inside your home.

For a truly original look, the range also includes matching cushions, so you can keep your scheme feeling beautifully cohesive and coordinated, or opt for a different pattern to contrast with your chosen curtain or blind.

Picking out a pattern and colourway that complements your décor is all part of the fun and whether you opt for decorative pinch-pleat curtains or sleek Roman blinds, you can up your style game and get the privacy you need at the same time. After all, it seems a shame to spend time on the rest of your home and not take the opportunity to turn your windows into an equally attractive feature – especially one with a designer edge!
