Curtains are to your rooms what mascara is for your eyelashes.
You can have some of the finest designer furniture available, but if the curtains are bland, it’ll just spoil the view. Indeed, they can make or break a room’s appearance. Without draperies, a space is incomplete.
The right draperies can magically transform a room’s look. For instance, they can create an illusion of a higher ceiling, the effect of drawing eyes across the room to itself, and of framing a fantastic panorama outside.
Installing curtains is much easier than painting your walls. According to interior designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard, “They’re a great way to inject your personality into a space, and an easy swap pending your mood or the season.” You can be more creative with curtains and draperies.
