Ivory curtains with blue paisley patterned contrast hem & white sheer

Recently we have been dealing with some wonderful clients who have spent a lot of time looking through Pinterest for curtain and fabric ideas. There is certainly a treasure trove of wonderful images to inspire.

However, these valued clients have budget restrictions, so in order for them to get at least a little of what they love, we have had to be rather clever in our curtain design.

There are design options available for the budget conscious, even if lush curtains and other such window treatments are your thing. If your heart is set on a fabric that is ridiculously good looking and expensive, there are clever ways to incorporate them into your decor without breaking the budget.

Think of using a feature fabric on a small roman blind and then teaming it with a plain and inexpensive coordinate for nearby windows. This look still gives the “wow’ factor as well as a cohesive look.

Feature fabrics can be used as a deep contrast hem on large curtains. If the window is not going to be obstructed by furniture this is a wonderful

way to utilise less fabric and still showcase a strong pattern. Also, narrow contrast on hems and seams can also lift a plain fabric and personalise a window treatment without breaking the bank.

Some designs we have showcased include feature pelmets teamed with plainer treatments or blinds.

Remember, if budget restraints prevent you from purchasing many metres of your beloved fabric, consider one of these options… we know you will love it!!
