Fashion trends in window decoration
Striving for simplicity and convenience dictates its own rules for decorating windows. Dyed fabrics, dense, natural materials – linen, cotton, silk, organza are in fashion. Preference of the year – flax and bamboo.
In general, the natural style dominates in interior design and window decoration. Hence the color preferences: close to natural or cold tones:
Preference is given to plain materials, and the type of curtains is single-layer. If double curtains are used – tulle or organza in color should be as close as possible to the color of the wallpaper, or slightly brighter. Variants are acceptable when only thin, transparent organza curtains are used. The length of the curtains is made to the floor, even better – with a slight approach to the floor.
The correct choice of curtains, the original design of the windows will make the interior complete, and the decor of the curtains with your own hands will bring comfort to the room, create an atmosphere conducive to relaxation.
