When choosing curtains, it is important to take into account the density of the fabric, texture and of course the shade
Brown curtains in the interior of the rooms:
|1.||Cabinet||Brown curtains are appropriate in an interior with a business setting, they set you up for a working mood. This color is typical of English classics. They are perfectly combined with wooden wall cladding and leather Chesterfield sofas (high armrests and low back with a coach dive).|
|2.||Teenage girl’s room||Spectacular chocolate curtains with pink floral curtains are an uncontested option for a shabby chic or romantic room. You can vary the design of the window opening, but the combination itself reminds of desserts..|
|3.||Kitchen||In the room where the fatty suspension settles, the practicality of the environment is important, even with a powerful hood. More important is not the shade, but the choice of synthetic fabric (easy to wash and not ironed). It is better to choose a curly cut of curtains, “day-night” curtains or blinds with thread curtains in yellow and brown shades.|
|4.||Bedroom||An atmosphere of peace and relaxation is needed. A dense curtain fabric without a pattern with a noble shine will block the light from the window, setting you to sleep. The fashion trend is electric ceiling cornices with a remote control to control the curtains while lying in bed. Excellent know-how for modern styling.|
|5.||Children||Dark curtains are not recommended, caramel and beige curtains with a “childish” pattern, in harmony with furniture and accessories, are better. In the bedroom of a little princess, classic, palace and Barbie styles are better.|
|6.||Living room||A win-win chocolate-beige range or chocolate-golden curtains are suitable for most styles. Alternative in Japanese style – screen curtains with hieroglyphs on special cornices.|
