Curtains in country style: rustic notes in the interior
Recently, residents of megacities lack the simplicity and comfort of a rural house, so designers began to offer interesting projects in this style. The easiest way to transform the room, to give the atmosphere a rural hue, you can use windows decoration. The ideal solution for the design of an apartment or a country house will be country-style curtains! In addition, the style of the village dwelling is so simple and multifaceted that it can be used even in an ultra modern interior without any global changes or repairs.
Features of the interior in the spirit of country
If before the country has recalled scenes with Indians or cowboys, today this style has undergone changes, having absorbed the features of different currents. Now the touching flavor of the village house is intended to remind you in a bustling city about a measured calm life, closeness to nature, and home comfort.The advantage is that this style does not require a complete repetition of rural decoration - it is enough to make an easy styling.
The main decoration is textiles, so its choice is given primary emphasis. Curtains in country style, handmade napkins, colorful tablecloths, mountains of pillows, capes on stools - all this will help to create the image of the room. This is a great idea for a country house or cottage - this design will look natural, at ease. In the urban interior style is suitable for decorating the kitchen or bedroom.
Color palette - from a laconic cell to variegated drawings
When choosing a color, the main thing is to be guided by the place of origin of the style: juicy vegetables, fruits, rich greenery - all the riot of colors is reflected in the interior palette. But pure calm colors are taken as the basis - white, olive, grassy, blue and so on. As for color accents, then it is preferable to more saturated colors - red, burgundy, brown, yellow, orange.
To the curtains of the country reflect the essence of rustic simplicity, it is necessary to dilute the plain textiles with uncomplicated patterns. This may be a cage, polka dots of various sizes, stripes or flower ornaments.Some use fabrics with colorful prints - chickens, sunflowers, apples, cherries, pears, berries, butterflies. But it should be borne in mind that large images, although they look pretty and original, but very quickly become boring (compared to abstract geometry or small patterns).
Another important point is the sense of proportion when choosing color combinations and motifs for textiles in the room. So that the decoration of the house does not turn into a tasteless “collective farm”, you should not take a cage, flowers and stripes at the same time. Take as a basis one motif and shades of a uniform color tonality, leaving only the window with a bright accent - then you will get a rich, but at the same time stylish composition.
Natural or synthetic: what materials to choose?
Curtains in a rustic style do not tolerate shine, gloss, pretentiousness - only a matte surface, a sleek cut, the absence of a complex decor. Therefore, natural materials are best suited - cotton, cotton, flax, which reflect the essence of the rural interior. But if you are going to sew curtains with your own hands, it is worth considering the following nuances:
- cotton and cotton fabric after washing can shrink, so the dimensions are selected with reference to this point, so that eventually the finished curtains do not become “small”.In this regard, flax is a more predictable fabric;
- natural fabrics are well draped, they look beautiful, but at the same time they lose their bright appearance faster than synthetic ones. Especially if we are talking about the design of the kitchen space - due to frequent washes, bright colors can fade and bright shades turn yellow. Therefore, it is permissible to use for sewing high-quality imitation of natural fabrics with the addition of synthetic threads - they completely repeat the properties and are externally indistinguishable, but they are characterized by greater strength and durability.
