Do you love the culture of Scotland? Do you love the way of Scottish people's lives? Do you want to recreate a mini Scotland at your home? Needless to say, I would love to do and that's why I chose tartan curtains at my home. Tartan is a pattern that forms criss-crossed horizontal and vertical bands of multiple colors. It was made using wool in the beginning but many other materials are used now-a-days. And this pattern is a traditionally Scottish. Some may call them plaid curtains as well. So if you love Scotland and its traditions, go for them.
Being thick, heavy and dark, they can be used to keep the room warm (when woolen) and provide a complete blackout when you need a profound sleep. I tried reddish purple tartan curtains and with the same fabric I designed the cushion covers. Now the windows, doors and cushions are all the matching contrasting with the light colored wall. It creates a completely magical Scotland where I love to put my feet up all the while. Coming into the room itself engender a feeling of get-up-and-go and vivacity.
I had a good deal for my tartan curtains from the close by interior decoration store. I chose the fabric first and rather than buying the pre-stitched, I settled on the fabric and then I got my curtains as well as cushion covers stitched from the same fabric. If you don't want to get into all this process, go straight into online shopping and buy one of these; else you can get a pre-stitched curtain from the stores as well. You will be in love with the mini Scotland they will form in your home. It will definitely be admirable to look at the classic appearance these curtains provide.(Curtain Patterns)
