Victorian window shades are often made of bold, medium to heavy weight material. Laces, tassels, and other various forms of ornamentation often adorn stately valances and flowing drapes. Scalloped sheer fabrics and sometimes lace are common. The trend seems to be that the focal point is the window treatments, not the windows. Alternatively, another beautiful Victorian look requires scrapping the blinds and instead using mosaic stained windows.
With curtains, consider placing a chic, modern oval mirror on the opposite wall to help reflect light. This is important since curtains do prohibit some natural light from entering your home. Pairing them with a mirror can help increase the amount of natural light you receive during the day.
Drapery and curtains are two entirely different sets of window treatments in interior design; though the terms are often used interchangeably. Drapery refers to pleated panels that hang from decorative rods or poles. This type of window treatment is moveable and can be opened during the day and closed in the evening.
