Neon Pink Roller Blinds on London's Garrick Street

Cool Idea: Ravishing Roller Blinds

For most of us, the purpose of installing roller blinds lies in keeping out light and offering privacy. But during my wonderful trip to London and Suffolk last week with Visit London, I came across one building that took the simple shades to a whole new level. From my cozy booth at the delightful Italian restaurant Carluccio's in Covent Garden, I couldn't help but be captivated (and blinded) by the neon pink blinds of a building across the street. Contrasting sharply with the building's white stucco exterior, the window treatments make a bold, playful, in-your-face statement that interacts with passersby while fending off their prying eyes. Are you too timid for this trick?

I love it, too, but I thought the same thing as skigurl; I hope the pink isn't as bright from the inside (although, it could still work if the rooms were done in neutrals and the pink provided a big pop of color. I wonder what the building holds.

It looks very cool from the outside but hopefully the inside isn't quite as bright...and it would only look that ravishing if they had their blinds closed all the time...if you opened a few or opened some halfway it would look a little less cool. But I really like it!
