The sun is out, and it’s here to stay – for a couple of months, at least! What better time to refresh your look with a pair of light diffusing, gauzy white curtains! All of Saffron Marigold’s fair trade home linens are hand printed by a skilled set of artisans, and bring a unique, hand touched look to your home.
Hand Printed White Cotton Curtains
Two of our wonderful white selections are Vanilla Glacé – a sugar white on vanilla print, touched with gold accents, and Ivy Lace – a filmy white curtain embellished with scrolling white vines and leaves. Vanilla Glacé has a brighter pop of white, created by the khadi paste used to print our ogee scrolls. Ivy Lace is a softer white, lending itself to French Provencal and Shabby Chic decor. Both of these tab top curtain panels are made from high quality cotton, and will add a subtle, but stand-out look to your home for years to come.
Beaded Cotton Valances
White curtains lend themselves to all kinds of coordinating color combinations as well. You might like to jazz up your look with one of our complementary prints on white backgrounds. Dance O Peacock, Moonlit Taj and Chasing Butterflies will each allow to keep a light an airy look while adding just a touch of color. You’ll have fun pulling these colors into the rest of your space!
Of course, one of the nice things about white curtains is that they go with absolutely everything, and this goes for curtain hardware as well. If you’re in the market for new hardware, however, we suggest something along these lines…
The glass knobs add to the ethereal, effervescent feel that the white cotton curtains create, and the unusual Capiz finial captures the unique essence of Saffron Marigold goods.
If you like the look of white, but are concerned about letting in too much light, we suggest one of these simple liners available at Target. One comes in a kit that allows the liner to be attached directly to the curtain, so no need for an additional rod. The other would be hung on a separate rod, directly behind the curtain.
I’ll close with a few inspiration photos that capture the atmosphere you can create with lovely white curtains.
