With large windows and plenty of natural light, choosing fabrics in rich colours like this tan is a great idea. In addition, you can also allow yourself to add curtains and blinds.

FALLS AND SCREENS
What do you want to dress the windows without fabrics that take up too much …? Light falls and screens that go down super smooth.

MATCHING THE SOFAS
The space is much more harmonious, and in beige tones, they are immensely suffered.
These curtains, like the coffee tables and the table lamp, are from Meritxell Ribé-The Room Studio. The rug is by Nani Marquina, and the basket is by Home Design International.
A DUO THAT NEVER FAILS
Putting two curtains to dress the windows does not fail. In addition, this way you have more options to control the entrance of the light. But if, in addition, they are white and a light gray, they will be timeless and will not go out of style. And if you want to change the colour range of your living room, do it with accessory textiles such as cushions and plaids. With this combination, the result is ten.

DOUBLE CURTAINS WITH AN INFALLIBLE COMBINATION
Although a double curtain has also been chosen in this room, taupe colour and pristine white have been selected. The key to keeping the light going and keeping the atmosphere bright and warm? Use a sheer type of linen fabric that allows light to pass through, although it looks a rather dark tone.

THE RAIL, CAMOUFLAGED
In this room where gray tones predominate, white curtains have been selected (they never fail). And so that the rail does not stand out, but rather is intuited, it has been chosen in the same colour as the joinery, so that it is (almost) invisible.

HIDDEN BEHIND THE CAST
Although these curtains – which are double – have been chosen in the same neutral tones as the rest of the room. White and beige triumph. Its remote system and its volume help to create a calm, warm and elegant environment.

CURTAINS THAT PROVIDE TEXTURE
The curtains for the bedroom have to be thick, insulating and with a nice fall. But they also have to be decorative. Like the ones in this bedroom in which grays predominate and have also been chosen with texture, enhancing the elegance of the tufted headboard.

A BLIND FOR EACH WINDOW
Instead of large blinds, as on other occasions, those who wear these windows are individual and each of a different size. This controls the entry of light, and the best thing is that they reach the ground to offer the necessary privacy.

LARGE BLINDS FOR LARGE WINDOWS
The decorator Asun Antó chose huge blinds to control the light that filters through the vast windows for this room. Being a packet style –which seems to make waves when gathered up– the effect is relaxed, and light access can be controlled.

CURTAINS FOR A RUSTIC LIVING ROOM
The curtains in the living room, although discreet, must respond to the same aesthetic as the rest of the decoration. These have been chosen in the same colour as the sofa upholstery, creating a very harmonious space.

A TRADITIONAL CURTAINS WITH A MODERN POINT
The truth is that curtains are an infallible option: decorative, light, fresh, and your windows will look more elegant. But to give them a modern touch, the interior designer Elba Danel, from Sube Interiorismo, opted for contrasting rails. Not only are they black, but their fixation on the ceiling is reminiscent of old pipes.
TWO CUSTOM BLINDS
In this cozy and bright bedroom, custom-made blinds have been chosen to dress the windows. And it is that when there is a ‘rare’ window, they are the best option. Although they are a bit more expensive, the result is much better.

DOUBLE WHITE AND MUSTARD CURTAINS
A type of curtain in white, ideal to limit the sun’s entrance during the day, and another in a thicker fabric in a mustard colour, which prevents the entry of cold and light, guaranteeing a restful sleep. A guaranteed success.

BLINDS THAT ARE NOT SEEN
Because, in this case, we wanted to delegate all the decorative power to the carpet, blinds have been chosen that thoroughly blend in with the wall so that, although they fulfill their function, they maintain the aesthetics of the rest of the decoration. Of this room.

A CURTAINS FOR A TRIANGULAR WINDOW
Sometimes the windows have shapes that do not meet the usual standards. That means using your imagination and finding ingenious and decorative solutions at the same time. And they have done so in this rustic bedroom, in which the curtain has the triangular shape of the window. Without a doubt, the most striking thing is the attractive shape that is achieved when it is collected.

LINEN, A SAFE BET
It is a fabric that absorbs heat and moisture very well and is also hygienic. Another exciting plus? They do not yellow and become softer with each wash. If you hang them a little damp, they will have fewer wrinkles.
SOME XXL CURTAINS
In this summer living room, the curtains are vaporous and combine with the freshness provided by the fibres. Its beige colour helps raise the temperature, although if something stands out, it is its remote system, which takes advantage of the architecture of this house. Thus, they seem to come straight out of the wall.

SIMPLICITY IN THE CURTAINS
Sometimes the simplest solution is the most stylish. And that has been done in this cozy rustic bedroom. Simple taupe linen curtains cover the windows leading to the small balcony.

For a long time that passes, gathered curtains are still a good choice, especially in spaces with a classic cut. These are made of linen, a fibre almost twice as strong as cotton. Investing in linen and a gathering system is investing in an eternal curtain—space decorated by Asun Antó.
A COMBINATION THAT FITS
White falls in the rest area and movable slats in the gallery. The falls are more suitable for the bedroom because they dress, give greater privacy and are more serene. And the slats are for the gallery: to graduate the entrance of light while preserving privacy.
PATTERNS WITHOUT FEAR
Stepping into this kitchen is like stepping on the stage of a play inspired by the English countryside. And, of course, something so special deserved a triumphal entry: a patterned curtain almost like a curtain.

COTTON, FRESH AND LIGHT
Perfect if you want to dress your windows naturally and casually. Don’t be obsessed with wrinkles. Natural cotton is not entirely smooth.
In white, it filters the light without diminishing clarity. Bench and stool, in Coton et Bois, and armchair, in Catalina House.
THE CURTAINS THAT DRAW
If you want the space to be much more elegant, the best are the falls to the floor, also for the bathroom.
These are from Ikea. The vanity unit and the washbasin are by Vidrebany, the taps are by Hansgrohe, and the towels are by Matèria.
CURTAINS ALSO OUTSIDE
They are a great and very personal idea to protect a porch from the sun without closing it.

WITH A MOLDING THAT HIDES THE BAR
A classic style solution that frames and gives prominence to the combination of curtains. Painted in a different colour to the wall, it provides an exceptional touch.

A PERFECT LINEN BLIND
How do you get it? The amount of wrinkle that forms will depend on the manufacturer’s ratio of polyester to linen. The more polyester, the minor crease you will have.

A very decorative classic idea that helps to harmonize different spaces. How? Look at the colour of the dining room curtain skirts and the living room cushions.

MIX STRIPES WITHOUT FEAR
If you like them, don’t stop doing it. Here, some on the carpet, from La Albaida, and others, on the curtains. For them to be perfect, it is good that they maintain at least one colour in common. The result is natural, personal and with country air. The decorator is Barbara Plattel.

A BLIND TO MATCH THE CARPENTRY
What do you get? Framing the exterior as a painting and at the same time separating itself from the rest of the kitchen thus gains more prominence.

DOUBLE CURTAINS, DOUBLE ELEGANCE
And more possibility to play with them. Suppose you want clarity, both open. That the sun bothers? You draw the curtain. If you want total privacy or a darker environment to watch your favourite series, the two runs, you can have it all.
IN CLASSIC-CHIC STYLE
Spectacular balcony doors, ceiling mouldings, sculptures, antique mirrors … A floor with a large base needs curtains to match. Like these silky curtains, with sparkles and held with a clamp, in the purest classic style. They are perfect in an environment as sophisticated as this.
It is a great system to draw the curtains smoothly and quickly. Yes, you have to be careful with them when washing them. The most advisable thing is to take them to the dry cleaner so that the metal of the rings does not leave rust on the fabric.
USE THE CURTAINS ALSO AS DOORS
In this bedroom, they replace the closet doors giving the room its style and lots of colours. To make them more decorative, fringe at the end and the top hem. And another plus: they have the same colour as the bedspread, which creates a more harmonious space.
WITH SHINE, ELEGANCE AND MORE LIGHT
Satin curtains like this reflect light, so they are ideal for classic settings where you want to give more clarity and sophisticated touch.

A TRICK BAR
If you have a small window or a narrow exit, place a long bar that goes beyond the joinery so that when you open the curtains, they are against the wall and do not cover an inch of glass. The optical effect you will achieve is that the windows appear much more prominent.
A PERFECT BALANCE
If the package-type blinds are a classic and the golden bars reinforce the style, hang the drops with rings, which will give a more informal air.
These are from Coton et Bois, like the sofa, the sideboard, the coffee table, the chandelier and the curtains.
AN IDEAL MIX FOR THE LITTLE ONE’S ROOM
A blind with narrow slats and curtains allow us to adjust the light we want to enter the room to the millimetre. White is perfect because it will combine with everything, something significant in rooms where the mixture of colours is not lacking.
FABRICS WITH INTENTION
The type of fabric for your curtains is a crucial choice. If you want something very natural, choose linen or cotton; if you are looking for sophistication, silk; and if you wish to light, like here, a curtain.

IN THE KITCHEN, CURTAINS THAT RESIST
Because they will get dirty more quickly than those in the living room, it is good to install stain-resistant curtains. They can be washed with a cloth or put in the washing machine, and the treatment makes it easier for the stain to disappear.
FOR UNEVEN WINDOWS
In curtains, there are solutions for everything, such as for this irregularly shaped window. Any curtain could not be put on a bathtub. This one, with slats, resists humidity and at the same time does not take up space, neither open nor closed.
VERY LIGHT CURTAINS
So they are. These curtains, in addition, do not even have metal catchers. With its same fabric, the loops have been created with which the bar will be held. If you want to make them yourself, just cut strips of the same material, hem both sides and sew them on the inside of the curtain.
THE SAME CURTAINS INSIDE AND OUTSIDE
The textiles, like the colours, unify the rooms. Here, the curtains give way to the living room from this frame painted in the Renaissance style and those that dress the windows.

A CORNER CURTAIN
Hiding the bar under trim is a perfect solution for camouflaging angled systems that can be unpleasant to look at. In white and with a very open weave, the curtains are very bright, ideal for a room where there are no more than meters.
VERY VERY COUNTRY
The window is decorated with linen curtains that allow light to enter and at the same time give a rustic and informal touch to the bathroom.

MATCHING THE HEADBOARD
An upholstered headboard decorates itself. And if you add the curtains, the result is round. In blue-gray colour, it gives personality to the bedroom, yes, you must have a good entrance of light.
