A: Velvet curtains are a surefire way to bring drama to the bedroom. Sleep there night after night and still, swathes of cotton velvet tumbling downwards will continue to mesmerise.
Be that as it may, when it comes to velvet curtains, there is something distinctly more suiting to colder, autumnal months. But don't be deterred as there are two options at your disposal for helping them to fit with all four seasons.
The first is remembering that your curtains, strong in presence as they are, are just one aspect of your room’s decor. So allow them to be the bedroom’s deeper, heavier feature, while ensuring everything else from paint colour to bedding, cushions, throws and accessories are updated to reflect the current season’s mood.
The second is to have just one section of the curtain in velvet to dial down the drama. In our curtain-making service, you can choose to have velvet as the leading edge alone, or as the lower third of your curtain, giving you just a panel of its deep-pile texture. In this way, you allow velvet’s character into the room but in a more controlled way that helps it to feel relevant all year round.
