Curtains can be one of the most effective ways of making a design statement. Draped fabric immediately gives a beautiful, feminine effect and there are a huge number of options in terms of material, colour and design. Here are some ideas how to get the most from your curtains.
For a pleasing effect it is essential that the curtains are made from high-quality fabric; they will drape better, last longer and let in less light. Linen in a neutral colour such as oatmeal or grey looks great for a country-cottage look, whereas silk gives a chic, sophisticated feel. Velvet can also be a good choice. It is best to avoid cheap, cotton and man-made fabrics as these will often be very thin.
