Navy Blue Velvet Living Room Curtains
Navy blue is the new classic, and you can see that with these living room curtains. This color and material work so well with neutral tones of the room’s design. These curtains come from the same maker as the previous product, so they are very similar, yet so they are very different as far as the decor effect goes.
We recommend using these living room curtains with blue or grey tones in your interior design with pops of bright color. These can be bright yellow furniture or accessories.
Geometric Living Room Curtains
Modern interior design requires bold accent statements and window treatments can correctly play that part. These geometric living room curtains can make a striking accent that would transform the decor completely.
You can use geometric accents in different design styles too. Basically, think of when you want to make contrast or visual drama. Such geometric print curtains can make a great focal point of the room also.
Three Color Ombre Living Room Curtains
Here’s how you make a decor accent from plain grey curtains. Handpainting them in ombre colors does the trick. It’s a great way to create custom decor with personal character. Keeping the color tones neutral doesn’t disturb the style of the interior design either.
Curtains of this design are universal in what styles of decor they can be used. They can add a personal touch in cold modern decor or a cozy accent in rustic farmhouse decor.
