First popularized by the canvases of Dutch artist Piet Mondrian, colour-blocking – literally using big blocks of colour – is everywhere this year.

“It’s making its way into apparel and these patchworks of colour are showing up where it counts in home fashions as well, including carpets, textiles and window treatments,” says Barbara Schirmeister, a colour and design consultant for Hunter Douglas, a leading window fashions company.

Colour-blocking with window treatments has never been easier than with the company’s new Roller Shades and Skyline Gliding Window Panels offering. The shared fabric collection has some vibrant colours that are very “now” as well as a variety of textures and patterns.

Colour-blocking can even have its place in your home’s media room since the Roller Shades will darken a room more effectively with the Blockout side and sill channels that are now available.
