Dress and decorate country windows

10 images

When dressing large windows, consider the scale of pattern; too large a print can overpower, too small looks fussy and will blend into the background. Choose a simple curtain heading and pole.

Window dressings serve a number of functions, from drawing together an interior scheme to cutting sunlight and creating a sense of privacy.

If you’re a fan of curtains, whether modern or theatrical, the options available to you are extensive, so you should have no problem finding something to suit your style.
