Art Meets Curtains Meets the Holidays!
We rarely think about draperies when we think about decorating a room for the holidays. If you’ve never seen 3D Drapes, be sure to check out the seasonal beauties featured below.Ambesonne Christmas Curtains, New Year in The House with Various Objects in Peaceful Place Photography Print, Living Room Bedroom Window Drapes 2 Panel Set, 108
Since you’re looking at these bold and artistic designs, you more than likely gravitate to unique decor. If so, using draperies to feature a seasonal theme qualifies as unconventional. After all, how many homes have you been in that have 3D drapes hanging on the wall?
If you’re feeling a little nervous about being so untraditionally bold in your holiday decor, here are some fundamental decorating tips:
Go Crazy Wild: One way to approach a holiday-themed space is to go overboard. You heard correctly, totally overboard. In other words, don’t go halfway, then chicken out and stop. If you do that, it’ll look like ‘too much.’ The secret to a full-on Christmas themed space that’s fun to be in is to accessorize and decorate nearly everything in the holiday spirit. Use Drapes, the Tree, Throw Blankets, Throw Pillows, Ornaments on Tables, Area Rugs, Garland on the Fireplace (if you have one), Lighted Holiday Art, Holiday Art that’s not Lit, and other non-conventional art if you have room, such as a quilted Christmas Countdown Calendar. Decide on a color scheme.
Are you going with reds and greens, or are you doing it up in a gold theme or another color choice? Try to keep the color scheme cohesive, all gold, multiple colors, all purple, etc. BUT if you’re sticking with a one-color selection, subtly include two other colors as accents to help ground the space. For example, if you choose gold as your primary color, bring in purple and silver in smaller accent items, such as pillows, candy dishes, or glass ornaments. Think ‘3 colors’ when you’re decorating with one color. Put the other two colors in smaller items.
Be Subtle: If you would like to include 3D Drapes into a room, but aren’t into an ‘overboard’ theme, you can still use 3D artistic drapes by deciding on three main things in your space to focus as holiday-themed.
As an example, if you’re planning to put the drapes in the living room, pick two other items to be a full-on holiday theme. The Tree could be one item, an area rug the other. Keep everything else as neutral as possible – using solid colors.
If your room is small, a large wall of holiday drapes, a Tree and a Christmas Rug may be too much. With a small space, keep the floors and furniture neutral. Punch it up with these three things: The 3D Drapes, the Tree, and Christmas Pillows.
A Child’s Room: With a child’s room, we’ve already spent a great deal of time decorating.
The beautiful thing about Christmas Holiday Drapes and Duvets is the ease of putting them up/out and taking them down. I know what you’re thinking about drapes though: It’s not so easy to change them if the rods we have up won’t work, or if the windows are too small.
In regards to the Curtain Rods, you’re right. You need the right rods to accommodate these 3D Draperies. However, once you have the rods up, you can interchange your drapes very easily by selecting the same kind of curtains. Note that the type of curtain rod you need will depend on the style of drape you select. Be sure to check that.
You can still put up large drapes even if the window is small. If your window is on a large wall, run the rod past the window (equal on both sides) and put your drapes up. When you open the curtains, open them up to the edge of the window. With the drapes closed, you get a full wall of art, even though behind those drapes is a small window. Once the holidays are over, replace the curtains with a set that works with the drapery rod you have installed.
Also, a great way to hide a not-so-nice wall
