There's something classic about striped curtains, but styled the right way they can also give your home a modern feel. Whether it's a thin or thick stripe, bold in colour or a subtle woven detail, stripes affect a room greatly.
A wide stripe adds a look of contemporary elegance to a space, and in contrasting colours your curtains can make a bold statement. Delicate woven or embroidered stripes are a much more subtle way of adding a stripe with texture. We are also seeing more of our sheer fabrics are coming through with a stripe contrast - this creates simple interest to an otherwise sheer fabric.
If your home has low ceilings and you're looking for a way to add some height, add curtains with vertical stripes - this helps to draw the eye upward and create the illusion of height in an otherwise small room. Otherwise consider a stripe that runs horizontally - obviously this can help to widen a room but it's nice to see something a little less 'expected'.
