Dressing Bay Windows with Curtains and Blinds > 30th Oct 2013

Whether in the bedroom or the living room, a bay window is perhaps the ideal focal point of any room lucky enough to have one. Taking the time to consider how best to dress your bay window is well worth the effort and can create a truly stunning effect. Silk is often used to achieve a look of traditional elegance. Silk fabric works extremely well either as curtains or as blinds for bay windows. Here we use Nepal Silk Pebble interlined curtains on a wrought iron by pole. Our Nepal Silk fabric range is 100% silk dupion and is especially woven for curtains and blinds. £38 per metre.

Silk roman blinds can also look very elegant. To dress this bay window, we again used our Nepal Silk fabric this time in Quartz to make made to meaure roman blinds with glass bead edging:
