Frame Your View With Color And Style
Curtains and drapes offer an easy way to dress your windows. They range to from sleek and simple to lush and opulent. Any decor can benefit from these popular window treatments.
For a clean look, try simple fabric panels in a neutral color or two-tone panels with a neutral field and a colored border or stripe. The added color can help balance a monochromatic pattern, while a neutral panel can tone down a colorful scheme.
Curtains and drapes can shift the mood of a room. For drama, curtains can be hung to the ceiling, a treatment that works well in large rooms and areas with high ceilings. Drapes can be wider than the window they cover, giving the illusion of a much more expansive view, which can add a lush, rich quality.
Mixing and matching textures and patterns on the windows can bring a room to life. Try hanging solid panels next to patterned sheers
or mix textured and striped curtains. As long as the colors coordinate, you can use your imagination.
Look for new treatments, like grommet headings—rings incorporated into the top of the fabric—and tab tops to achieve a contemporary look. More traditional hanging systems like pole pockets work well in traditional and country motifs.
Try using curtains and drapes in new and creative ways in order to add dimension and interest to a room. Hang panels close to the wall, spanning a corner or even use them as room dividers or to soften an entryway.
