Hot off the catwalk... into your bedroom...

Black and White Duvet Covers
The fashionistas here at Harry Corry are always one step ahead of the next big thing and so we’re delighted to see that the latest trend in fashion is less to do with clothes and all to do with dressing your home.

And why should it not? Most of us like to look good and our taste and style reflects our personalities, and that goes far beyond what we wear. So don’t limit your fashion choices to the closet – bring your good taste home in style!

But bringing the look into your home brings different considerations… you need to be careful not to overwhelm with colour, to decide whether you want to clash or not to clash, and to make sure every piece is carefully thought through.

Just like dressing yourself, you should start with a statement piece and work around it. Whether that’s feature wallpaper, a colour palette or a piece of furniture you’re particularly fond of – then all you have to do is accessorise!

So, this summer, we here at Harry Corry have been inspired by some of the world’s top designers and so we’re bringing you some great ideas for designer looks – without the designer price tag!

We’re talking Chanel’s monochrome, Vuitton’s florals and YSL’s sharp stripes – and how you can get any of these looks for a lot less at Harry Corry!

Chanel – it’s black and white.

Strip back your room to the four bare walls... and now we’re ready to begin! A white base is inexpensive to create yet is very sharp, so make sure your walls, doors and architrave are immaculate. Then add some black to add real dramatic contrast – it’s that simple! Hang these readymade Glam Black eyelet curtains and, if you want a little variation in tone, team with this voile panel  to create depth. Otherwise, you can add interest and soften the sharpness of the look with a simple floral pattern – try this Monika black and white duvet set in marvellous monochrome.  Accessorise with this sophisticated satin shade and a pair of these Belvedere black lamps.

Louis Vuitton - fall in love with romantic florals!

As summer is still taking its time to get into its stride, it’s a great time to bring the outdoors in. Freshly inspired by Louise Vuitton, we’re loving this Catia Red duvet set. You can bring out the burnt oranges and reds even more with warm accessories like this Spectrum cushion cover and a pair of these Flower tie backs - unusual, girly and perfect for drawing attention to curtains in a suitably strong colour.

If you prefer your florals more low key, you’ll love these Autumn Fall readymade eyelet curtains.  Team them with this Satin Effect plum shade. Harry’s Poppy Purple cushion cover - on offer right now at half price – just £2.50!

YSL – why not do more with stripes??

The ultimate style statement, bold stripes are both impactful and yet won’t overwhelm the senses. We love this Regatta Blue Duvet Set which will lend a fresh, clean New England feel to any room. If you really want to make a statement, create a feature wall with this Stripes wallpaper and layer the look with block coloured accessories – red cushions, while this Windsor navy lamp will add a touch of sophistication.

If you refer the warmer green shades in a bedroom, Teal is the perfect tone to warm up a room and make it look richer. We love these teal ready made curtains with their gently shimmering stripes - which you can highlight perfectly with this Monaco Teal lamp.  For a really fresh look, dress your bed with this Lewis striped duvet set - on offer right now in the single size for less than half price! Double and King sizes are also on special offer.
