Welcome summer to your home with Taylor Blinds and Shutters

Welcome summer to your home with Taylor Blinds and Shutters

This summer, say hello to a fresh touch of décor, sprinkled all over your home (cue the marble counters, bronze detail and up the hygge)!

This is how it’s done

This season’s top trend follows the Scandinavian way of life. It’s all about making the most out of an existing space, decluttering and playing around with simple, but functional, tweaks.

Sometimes the best part of a house is the view. Welcoming summer into your home could be as simple as updating your window treatments with Taylor Blinds and Shutters – enhancing the summer feeling without losing any of the winter comforts. There’s no way of imitating a cool, seaside breeze and the beauty of having fynbos in your backyard should never be taken for granted. Savour the special moments with a set of blinds that have been developed around practical living. The C-Screen Roller Blinds offer UV protection, so you’ll have a pleasant African-summer experience.

Open your home up to the outdoors seamlessly with the retractable Thermowood Shutters. Spend your mornings with an uninterrupted view of the rising sun, and simply close the shutters again when the midday heat starts setting in. It’s that easy to control the light and temperature in your home. Added bonus? The shutters offer noise control, so when it’s time for baby’s afternoon nap, simply close the shutters in her bedroom to block out the noise from outside.

Sounds amazing, right? And what’s better is that Taylor Blinds and Shutters makes it easy for you to browse (and obtain an estimated cost for your choice) online. It’s as easy as, “Oooh. Aaah. Click”.


All together, now

As far as trends go, sticking to one theme is outdated, instead we’re incorporating several trends at once. And this can be done subtly – a copper vase or candleholder on the dining table; marble wallpaper or a floral shower curtain in the bathroom.

Embrace nature by merging indoor and outdoor spaces, choose jewel tones such as emerald and amethyst over bold accents, and rejuvenate your home by bringing colour and life indoors with a Teracotta pot and some greenery.

Textures will be big this summer… really big. When you’re out shopping for scatter cushions and linen, there’s one rule: the more unique, the sooner you should get it into your shopping basket! What’s even better is having a mixture of textures, colours and prints (yes, animal prints too) working together in a single space.

Bespoke baby gear, designed with the supermom in mind!

When it comes to baby brands, there are so many great companies out there producing some incredible stuff. On an international level, we are of course envious of some of the adventurous, fun and fabulous products on the market (not all of which we can always get our hands on), so we simply cannot contain ourselves when every now and again we stumble across some equally great brands produced on our very own doorstep…


50 Shades of Pink

When it comes to wine, especially rosé, there are loads of guys who won’t touch it. Maybe it’s because they prefer a beer or a more refined spirit; maybe it’s because it comes in a stemmed glass, who knows?. What we can say though, based on the confessions of our local wine fundi, Jan-Nico Coetzee, is that even the tough guys have a palate for rose, and thanks to the bottled beauties listed below, we now know just why.
