5 Ways to use Flamingo Fabrics

The flamingo decorative trend has been going strong since the 1950s. Plastic, ornamental versions of the bright pink bird were firm favourites of American gardens. Since then, flamingo fabrics, wallpapers and posters continue to grace homes the world over.

Viewed by some as fun and playful and others as ironic and garish, flamingo designs are here to stay whether you love or loathe them. If in the latter camp, our delicate and subtle flamingo fabric might help you embrace the trend! 

Hand designed by Lincolnshire-based and wildlife-loving designer Sophie Allport, the fabric features a pattern of bright pink flamingos contrasted against a neutral beige background. 100% cotton and machine washable, our flamingo fabric is of the highest quality and easily cared for. 

But how to use flamingo fabric? Well, here are some ideas with links to handy tutorials.

Curtains or blinds

Curtains or blinds

Introduce a pop of bright colour into a children’s bedroom or playroom (or any room for that matter!) with flamingo fabric. The design is more cute than bold, so isn’t as garish as some flamingo designs making it the perfect choice for curtains or blinds. 

Our made to measure service gives you quality curtains or blinds completely tailored to your space.
