We all know the impact that window treatments can make in a room. That being said, you want to make sure the impact is a positive one, and doesn’t take away from the design and aesthetic of your home. Modern curtains are widely available these days, so finding a solution that beautifully sets off your interior architecture and decor shouldn’t be a problem. The problem will likely be narrowing down your selection! With the internet, even high end curtains can be affordable!
Love color? Keep your foundations (wall color, etc.) neutral, and use curtains, pillows, artwork, and smaller accessories to add pops of your favorite color. I love the unexpected use of a green curtain panel in this soft pink bedroom.
Since I love white interiors and natural elements, I adore floor to ceiling white curtains like these. They lend a sense of unpretentious elegance. All of the architectural elements are allowed to take center stage because the curtains aren’t overshadowing them. The black curtain rods help tie in the dark wood beams on the ceiling.
A child’s room or nursery is a place where you can let your hair down a little and really have fun with pattern or color. I absolutely adore these machine embroidered design panels with stars and a cityscape at the base. So cute!
You can also make curtains the focal point in a neutral interior if there is a pattern or color palette that you absolutely love but maybe weren’t able to bring in via wallpaper or a rug. These roman shades really pop and add life to this elegant but otherwise quiet kitchen. Roman shades are a clean and tailored option if you think curtain panels are too fussy for a particular room or window.
Not only can you get creative with the actual curtains you select, how you hang them is also an opportunity to get creative. I never would have thought to install a curtain rod over my front door in order to have added privacy from solicitors or nosy neighbors. The effect is very grand and unique.
How cool are these curtains? I love the star cut-outs that allow light to come in! I’m sure kids would especially love these. I’ve also seen them in black where the cut out is a cityscape.
