We had a little taste of winter again here this past weekend and the cozy nights by the fire gave me plenty of time to research the 2016 curtain trends. It was fun going back and looking at what customers have recently bought as well as leafing through the interior design magazines talking about “the resugent of dining rooms and the home office as well as bringing the outdoors in and injecting some glamour.” Mike Keenan
Here are the top four.
- Colours – Natural tones are in, greens, browns and greys are selling well.
- Heavy interlining and hefty poles. Oil prices may be dropping, but for how long? Well made curtains can last for years and need to pay their way.
- Fabric – again nature is first and foremost…. plain fabrics with floral patterns.
- High Tech – Electric motors are becoming more popular, no doubt in the next few years controlled by your phone !
Looking forward to a busy 2016.
