At Littlewoods, we think it’s lovely to switch things up in the home as the seasons change. In the summer to autumn transition especially, it’s a great idea to change your curtains. Light, sheer designs will no longer work – instead, you’ll need insulating curtains with autumn prints, colours and textures. Here we share a few of our favourites, which just radiate autumn/winter 2014.
Let’s start with the Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen Curtain Call Velvet-effect Pleated Curtains. Velvet is very much a material associated with the cooler months, so this draping set – available in six different colours – is a great option if you want to add a luxurious feel to your home. If you want a similar touch but with something a bit less flamboyant, there’s always our Faux Suede Eyelet Curtains (Extra long drop available). These are also available in different colourways, and they evoke quality and warmth.
Checks are big news right now, especially if they’re teamed with woodland-themed accessories. Our Woven Check Curtains get the job done and are reminiscent of a cottage retreat. There’s also the Portobello Woven Jacquard Eyelet Curtains, which are a lavish alternative – the metallic striping adds a lovely touch of elegance. All these need now is an owl-shaped lamp or a stag head display, no?
And nothing says autumn more than leaf motifs. Our Bay Leaf Flocked Lined Eyelet Curtains feature a block of colour at the top, then a cascading of bay leaves. In faux silk, they truly are a wonderful option this season. As an alternative, there are the Verena Printed Lined Pleated Curtains with tie-backs, which incorporate flower illustrations into the print. Finally, if you’re still a fan of bright colours no matter what the weather’s doing outside, then the Izabelle Lightweight Printed Pleated Curtains are for you – still perfectly autumnal but with kicks of bright and bold greens, they’re lovely curtains to behold.
