Stylish And Elegant Window Scarves
Give your windows a new, refreshing look, by changing the window treatments every now and then! Different kinds of window curtains, shades, blinds, etc., are available. One of the most popular window treatments is the window scarves. Window scarves are long, often lightweight pieces of fabric that look the same from both the front and the back. While traditional drapes can be functional, window scarves are typically purely decorative, which makes the arrangement of the scarf the most important part in adding a scarf to your window. Window scarves offer an effortless, casual look, depending on how well you hang them. You can use them alone or with other draperies, but as for the latter, the results can turn stomachs rather than heads, if you are not selective about patterns. For a design that shows off your window-styling talents, consider the fabric’s weight, color, design and length, and the window behind.
Window scarves need not follow any strict design rules but one: If you have small children in the home, keep the fabric out of their reach; curious hands can easily pull a casually draped scarf out of place, and loose material can be a suffocation hazard. Although you can hang a window scarf from the floor up or simply as a swag-like topper across a rod, find a happy-medium length that looks attractive that a toddler or infant cannot reach. To bring up the material at the sides, pull the upper draped fabric to create fuller, deeper swags or swoops, form an additional swag or two across the rod or use a shorter scarf.
