Curtain. Saturday , May 19th , 2018 - 08:41:38 AM
The curtains are the very things that call attention to your windows, one of your home's major sources of light. Those curtains need to look wonderful, inviting and vibrant. There's really no need to settle for the everyday curtain décor you find at your local store. There are all kinds of great curtain ideas out there.
Another thing you can do is create curtains with bed sheets. A nice, ironed navy blue bed sheet with a curtain rod sewn to the end will make a great window covering. Just make sure you leave some extra linen together with the rod to allow enough room for gathering. After you hang the sheet on the window, you can purchase snowflake stickers at a greeting card or general store to place on top of the linens. Wintery snowflakes in glittery silver and white will give a nice winter-wonderland look to windows.
Large cities are represented on custom shower curtains using images of their familiar landmarks. London, Paris and New York seem to be the most easily recognized, with internationally known tourist sites like the Eiffel Tower, Trafalgar Square and the Empire State Building. It is very likely that many other large cities have similar shower curtains with beloved landmarks.
Violet colored draperies are also perfect for a little girl's room. Imagine decorating a room for a little girl with shades of lavender and having iridescent, lilac colored curtains. For a softer, more country looking style, you could choose fabrics that are light colored but have small lavender flower prints on them. These would also be excellent for kitchens that are decorated in a country style. Older girls in their teen years may appreciate designs that are slightly edgier. One way to introduce a more whimsical style to an otherwise boring room is to install amethyst colored vintage curtains or vintage inspired curtains. These can be used to create a retro vibe, which is very popular with the younger generations. One benefit of buying vintage window treatments is that you can often find them on sale at garage sales or in thrift shops for nominal prices, making them both economical and stylish.
For those who love the convenience of shades but desire the ornate appeal of curtains, balloon curtains may be the answer. These shades are generally made of cotton or a cotton/polyester blend, and come in a vast variety of colors and designs. They feature one to four or five gathers at the bottom, so that when you open them (vertically as a shade), the material creates poufs between the gathers. The Balloon Fabric Shades have multiple gathers, creating a decorative row of poufs.
You may find that the owner will then let you take a set of curtains at a trial price. You then proceed to another store with the receipt and ask them to match the price. You may be surprised to learn that some stores will offer to sell you an entire set for that same price. Once you have purchased the set you can then take the trial set back to the original store and say that they were not the style that you wanted. You have now got the coverings you wanted at a nicely reduced price.
