Designing with Curtains: It’s one thing to mix and match styles of drapes until you feel as though you have a selection that will work more or less OK with a specific room or area—and quite another to make conscious design choices along the way that result in a more cohesive effect.
While sewing your curtains make sure that they are not too long-they should just clear the ground. Although long, flowing curtains are beautiful to look at, the extra length will pick up dust and will need cleaning often. Fabrics differ so be sure to check if your choice drapes well. Hold it up against light to be sure the weight doesn't distort the fabric. If you are picking up a curtain with either printed or woven patterns on it, take care while sewing. These patterns will be repeated at regular intervals and you must start your hem at the same place for every cut. While buying material for your window curtains you will usually have two widths to choose from: 54 inches and between 110 and 118 inches wide. The latter is used if you decide not to line your fabric and don't want your curtains to have seams.
Here are some guiding design principles that can assist you in selecting the right drapes for your beautiful home: Harmony and Unity - In general, you can achieve a better result if you choose curtains that can bring a sense of unity and harmony to the room in question. This is often a function of taking the time to recognize the architectural style with which you are working and then trying to make the most of it – as opposed to covering it over or just pretending it isn’t there. You can also harmonize your surroundings by choosing colors that are already a part of the room’s decor, especially those used in accent pillows. Also, crisp folds tend to be more pleasing to the eye than excessive draping.
Cafe Curtains - Country Home: If you want to have a country home setup, then you have lots of possibilities to choose from. Easiest is to find a tree branch that would be perfect for your window and would match your cafe curtains. Besides the wood as a classic, you can also pick an iron rod or some old, rejected part that can fit as a curtain rod.
Mostly visible rods are at least partially visible even when your window coverings are closed. When your drapes or curtains are open they're totally visible, and play a big part in your decorating statement. How do you know which to pick?
