Post 16 of 18

Many people, even many interior designers do not pay so much attention at the curtains of the house. In many cases the curtains can change completely the appearence and the style of your living room or your bedroom. The most common interior design trick to make a living room look luxury and similar to a palace, without spending a lot of money comparing to buying the furniture of a palace for example, is to install classic luxury curtains. In most cases classic luxury curtains require classic interior design , but not allways. You can also combine it with simple modern furniture too. Just avoid combination with futuristic design.

If you want to give your interior a more special style then maybe you should search for a more special tradition type of curtains. YOu can use traditional and ethnic style curtains even if you do not have an ethnic style interior and decor. One very special sollution can be Japanese panel curtains. SUch curtains can also be used in modern style interior and give a special style of beautiful Japanese art. According to the color and the patterns can be adjusted in modern, classic or ethnic interior. For modern interiors , I would advice to use simple pattern and neutral colors like white black and grey.

In Latin America and Spain, it is quite common to see rolling curtains with patterns. Of course the pattern will define the character of the curtains and the interior. Simple and single color rolling curtains are used in modern interiors and intensive color and patterns for more traditional style.

One more I really like, especially for houses near the sea, is Greek style white and light blue curtains. If you house has a view at the sea, river or lake, you can feel like being in the Greek islands using some eagean style decor and traditional white and blue curtains.
