Plum fabric for Roman Blinds

Proud and regal or soft and sweet, plum fabrics range from vibrant violet to pale lavender. Whether you blanket a whole room with the colour or just use it as an accent, this mystical hue is bound to make a statement. 

Plum purple upholstery fabric offers a spirited mood.  However, to add a more youthful feel, mix plum purple curtains with other colours, such as grey, green, pink, and white.

The Plum fabrics are a soft aubergine, a warm shade of purple, a homage to red and purple, with a touch of yellow. This paired with a mossy green is common in French and shabby chic decors. The Plum fabric range can be found in our Orchard Collection, where Vanessa has combined it with Kale green in several coordinating designs. You can buy this plum shade fabric by the metre to make wonderful Roller Blinds and more.

What colours go well with plum fabrics?

Several shades of green, especially Kale and Olive, look great with plum. Kale green is as earthy as it gets! See Fruit Garden, and also May Blossom, which major on the Plum colour with an accent of Kale green.

Any of our greens from Sepals and Petals, to Simple Ticking Detail in Kale, will contrast well with Plum fabrics.

A touch of Charcoal grey or Dove grey also coordinate well and ground the colour scheme in a room, three colours always make the room look less contrived. So, try our Plain Linen Union in Charcoal or Dove in particular, for a bed valance or cushions. You could bring these same colours in with a little pattern; try our contemporary Sepals and Petals.

All my printed fabrics work well with the plains, the colours are designed to match and coordinate, and for instance the subtle shade of Clay in the printed fabrics matches the Plain Clay Linen Union.

Please ask for fabric samples and see the colours in your rooms. If you order a half metre returnable sample you can drape them over your existing blinds, or just in situ to where the blind will go, and see how it looks. All our fabrics are printed in the UK on a good weight of 100% Linen, and Linen Union, making them suitable for lampshades, curtains, blinds, cushions and upholstery. We hold a good stock of all our fabrics ensuring delivery is usually within 3-5 working days subject to availability. The same team, who takes your order will roll, inspect and cut it, so accuracy and quality can be assured.

HOW TO MEASURE UP FOR YOUR ROMAN BLINDS

INSIDE A WINDOW RECESS

 Width: Measure across the recess at several points and give the narrowest measurement minus 1cm for clearance so the blind will run freely (see E on the diagram)

 Length: Measure from the top of the recess to the bottom (see E on the diagram)

OUTSIDE A WINDOW RECESS

Width: Measure the width of the recess and add at least 5cms on each side for overlapping (see F on the diagram)

Length: Measure from the required starting position above the window to the length you require, adding 5cms on the length
