I know what you’re thinking — lacy, frilly, over-the-top sheer curtains that smell like the crazy cat lady’s house.  At the same time they’re majestic, refined, sophisticated, opulent.  Lately they have been making a comeback and finding a place  in modern contemporary design. Sheers are great for strong sunny days in our climate, by letting enough light inside while diffusing it to a more comfortable hue. To keep that sophisticated, opulent look stick to a flat colour.  Greys, whites, and cream coloured shades are really versatile and timeless.

Bold colours and patterns


Patterns and bold colours are really risky but if done well they add a huge surge of personality to the room.  It can do wonders in complementing your furniture and walls’ simpler styles.  Patterns and colours are really a matter of taste and patterns which you might like, might not be appreciated as much by the next person.  So if you’re thinking of renting out your place, you might want to avoid taking such bold design decisions. The Ikat pattern in particular has been highly popular for curtain designs and are also regularly used for upholstery and rugs.
