Giving curtains some extra finesse

English Home, the best-selling magazine that combines celebrating English design with insights from world-acclaimed architects and experts, recently called on Brian to share his tips on how to make the most of windows.

Some pointers on using curtains to create style and mood – without forgetting practicality – include:

  • Silk hangs beautifully, but eventually it begins to fade and fray at the edges. Give silk curtains a new lease of life by banding over the edges in coloured velvet.
  • Sew large buttons along the top or sides of curtains to add texture. Embellishments allow your creativity free rein and give curtains a personal touch.
  • If curtains don’t suit your room’s design, etched glass panels can be a wonderful alternative to complement the architecture.
