1920s and 1930s Magazine Cover Blinds

I’m wary of the concept of printed roller blinds, especially if printed with your own holiday snaps, but Creatively Different Blinds has some that could convince me otherwise, in particular these Magazine Cover Blinds.

The images are from an archive at the Mary Evans Picture Library and consist of magazine covers mainly from the 1920s and 1930s, so feature illustrations in the style of that period. The blinds are made to fit your window size, so prices vary depending on your measurements, but expect to pay from £105.

Visit Creatively Different Blinds to view the different options.

Deborah Azzopardi Pop Art style blinds from Creatively Different Roller Blinds

Azzopardi blind

It's generally hard to get too excited about blinds, a view that Creatively Different Roller Blinds are working hard to rectify. They sell custom-sized blinds that are printed with an image of your choice. Their collection includes many striking images, including this Pop Art-style collection from Deborah Azzopardi.

The image shown is one of five of her colourful images available on the site or, for an even more exclusive blind, you can buy a signed by the artist, limited (and much more expensive) edition of a floral design called Flower Quartet. 

There's a price calculator on the website where you can work the cost based on the spec of your window. Just as a guidance, the telephone image above would cost £156 for a 100cm square window and, for comparison, the Flowers Quartet design is £362.

Whether first thing in the morning you can face the sun coming through an image that bright is another thing entirely…
