1. Chevron

The chevron pattern is all the rage when it comes to interior design. The minimalistic zig zag has a simple, yet powerful effect on countless home decorations, from pillows, to wallpaper to, of course, curtains. It really does not matter what color you choose for your chevron pattern curtains, as long as it fits your personality and the environment you want to create in your home. One of the choices that we recommend the most is going back to basics to a black and white pattern. The contrast is beautiful and it will serve as a chic touch to your living room, bedroom, bathroom or kitchen.

2. Swags & Tails

If a royal, noble or all around elegant look is the one you dream of for your home, you have to go for swags and tails. These are the gorgeous curtains that gracefully drape together to outline your windows with exquisite precision. The elaborate technique and fine fabric used for swags and tails are the ultimate note of refinement, good taste and luxury. The best colors you can use for swags and tails curtains are deep, rich, earth colors, or light tones such as beige.

3. Marsala

Ah, the 2015 Pantone Color of the Year, Marsala. This beautiful shade is a must have when it comes to interior decorating this year. Aside from the fact that it is possibly the most popular color right now, it really is gorgeous. When it comes to curtains, Marsala assists in completing the refinement we were talking about earlier. You can actually use Marsala for swags and tails or you can opt for simple curtains in this pretty and trendy shade. Also, the color works great in any room of the house, so don’t be afraid to experiment and go out of your comfort zone.

4. DIY Curtain Rod

This is one of our favorite curtain ideas for obvious reasons. We fully support do it yourself projects and the entire creative process behind them. If you want to add a personal and natural note to your home, you can work up the courage to make your own curtain rod and even your own curtains to hang from it. Find a large piece of wood similar to the shape of a curtain rod and paint it in the color of your choice. For curtains, you can go to your local fabric store and purchase the material of your choice. Have fun with it and even consider combining fabrics for your curtains.

5. Minion Yellow

Speaking of Pantone, another color that has taken the industry by storm is none other than Minion Yellow. Inspired by the hit series Despicable Me, Minion Yellow is actually the first color that Pantone has launched in the last three years. Pharrell was the master mind behind this idea, and now it is popping up in homes all around the world. Minion yellow curtains are a must if you want to promote a warm, friendly and welcoming environment for your family and guests. Curtains are not your only options if you want to go for a Minion yellow themed space; you can also use various decorations, lamps, bedsheets or even paint your walls this color for a super bright effect. You can try simple curtains in this color or combine patterns (white and Minion yellow chevron looks amazing!).

6. Red Velvet & Gold Fringe

Remember what we said about swags and tails? Well red velvet and gold fringe is the next level of luxury. You can take this color combo and place it on swags and tails for the most elegant curtains you could ever think of. Red reflects a deep passion and profound feeling, while gold offers the finest details to compliment the ruby shades. The idea of red velvet and gold fringe makes you think of cinematography, high class events and nobility. If that is the vibe that you want to project in your home, you should totally go for this design.

7. Frilly Pink

We are 100% sure that we have a lot of girly girls out there who are dying for the perfect pink curtains to fit their personalities. We always love a good dose of pink when it’s the case, so frilly pink curtains come natural for teen girls. You can choose to combine light and dark shades of pink with white for a clean and cute effect or even choose your favorite pattern to play with. Girls love soft fabrics, so consider using one that will be pleasant to touch and look at. Frilly pink curtains work best in the bedroom of a teenage girl, so think about it as an option for you or your daughter.

8. Rainbow

Feel the rainbow, taste the rainbow! No matter how much we love simple designs, we can never refuse a rainbow of beauty in interior design when it is done right. Rainbow curtains can be the cutest and friendliest decoration in your entire house without standing out in a negative way. Consider using a very light and semi-transparent fabric and placing the pieces of colored curtain one after the other in the order of a rainbow. You will enjoy a fresh, young and welcoming effect that works great with a modern home.
