Window Dressing

From plush curtain drapes and trimmings to sleek blinds and classic shutters, take a closer look at these window accessories.

Curtains
For a cosy feel, soften window frames with heavy, brightly patterned fabrics. Tiebacks are a more classic decorative approach while free-hanging drapes are ideal in a relaxed environment. Colour and prints are an easy way to introduce drama.
