Curtains that are not curtains

I have been meaning to put up some linen curtains on the long window upstairs. There was already an old curtain rail installed to it was just a case of getting curtain crocodile clips (which are one of the best inventions in the world) and choosing a throw from my vast collection that was in keeping with the simple feel of that room that I am currently working on – I chose a loose linen with a simple double stripe. Add a bit of driftwood and hey presto! Summer Curtains. Image

 

The joy of this method is that you are not committing to these curtains forever. In the Autumn I will probably change them for a tweed or woollen  fabric – it will take five minutes.

While I do love bespoke curtains in an elegant setting, sometimes they are too much when you are going for a simple informal feel.

Maybe they are not there to block out the light or add privacy but perhaps just to screen an unsightly window frame.

They may not even be covering a window at all but creating a partition

or substituting a door…

Whatever way you choose to hang your fabric, it enables you to build another layer of texture to a room.
