Besides for home privacy and controlling the natural light from the windows, curtain is widely used for home interior. Since it is part of home decoration, it means we have to make a proper selection before installing the curtain. Regardless the material, we have to choose the curtain patterns that will match to our home interior to create a harmony.
For example, you have to match it with the wall color or wallpaper and the colors of your furniture. The color of it is not necessarily the same but at least it will match with the interior.
Selecting the curtain patterns can be based on the interior style. For minimalist style, you can use a plain one or without any pattern but if you need a patterned one, then you may choose the model with stripes, checkered or other minimalist patterns.
Moreover, to get a romantic atmosphere, we can select a wrinkled-style with flower pattern. The material used should be smooth and soft like satin. Sometimes, people make the pattern with their sofa.
Another idea is matching the pattern with the wall color theme. For example, to get a “nature” effect, select a floral-patterned curtain to match with your green wall. Do the same thing for other colors and patterns.
Long time ago, curtain was used for blocking the lights. People used to have a thick material. Today, many people use a combination by using 2 layers style. If you are one of them, then you can do a pattern curtain combination. The combination can be stripes and floral patterns for the example, but it must have the same color tones.
In case your wall is using wallpaper, then you must consider the curtain patterns. Wrong combination will only create a “crowded” view in your room. It needs what we call “Sense of Art” as it will not so easy mixing some patterns close to each other.
Unlike the plain wall color, wallpaper has many patterns. Just for the example, never mixed the small pattern scale with small curtain patterns scale too, it is useless as nothing can be focused. The common mistake is also putting too many patterns on the top of each other.
Try to make balance whether for the color and the curtain patterns itself. Go to the store and make a trial test before doing the combination.
