Depending on what role is prepared for the textile decoration of the windows in the room, you can select companion colors to combine with a green tone. If the curtains are an accent element of the interior, then you can choose bright, saturated colors for textiles, and choose a neutral tone for the walls (not necessarily light). If the curtains should harmoniously blend into the overall picture of the room, without standing out against the general background, then the colors of the textiles are chosen based on the general palette of the interior.

Another unwritten rule for combining curtain colors and wall decoration tones is associated with a combination of monochromatic surfaces and material with a pattern. If a single-colored wall decoration is used in the room, then the curtains can be hung with a print, but if the vertical surfaces are pasted over with wallpaper with a pattern, then it is better to buy plain-colored textiles for windows.

In modern design projects of a wide variety of premises, you can find the use of green curtains of the traditional model, both with or without curtains. Modern stylistics advocates the use of the highest possible level of natural light in the space. But many premises cannot exist at all without textile decoration – for example, a bedroom or a room on the first floor in an apartment building. Therefore, decorating windows of various shapes and sizes only with curtains is quite common – during the day the room receives maximum natural light, and at night the curtains protect the room from prying eyes.

If your room faces the south side of the building, you will need more protection from the sun than a thin, translucent curtain fabric. In modern design projects, you can increasingly find a combination of classic fabric curtains and roller blinds made of reed, bamboo or other natural materials. On the one hand, you get reliable protection from the sun’s rays and prying eyes, on the other – an aesthetic decor of window openings, bringing the effect of originality to the interior of the room.

Classic canvases in shades of green can have different attachments to the cornice. A popular model of traditional curtains are canvases on eyelets – metal or plastic rings, with the help of which the fabric is literally strung on the cornice and falls from it to the floor in evenly distributed vertical folds.

Another popular model of traditional curtains is fabrics on swing-over hinges. These curtains are very easy to attach to the tubular cornice. Buttonholes can be made from the same fabric as the canvas, or act as a color accent.

From the point of view of attaching traditional curtains to the cornice, there is another interesting and aesthetic way – the use of a lambrequin. If you need to hide flaws in finishing, a window opening or imperfections in the architecture of the room as a whole, just create an original curtain composition for decorating windows, a lambrequin will be an excellent option. Most often, rigid lambrequins are used, which are a narrow rectangle that covers the entire space of the window opening in width in its upper part (at the cornice). But there are also non-rigid models, collected on the sides or smoothly falling onto curtains or curtains..

Another popular way to decorate windows with textiles in modern homes is to use fabric blinds or roman blinds. These are rectangular canvases with evenly laid horizontal folds. When assembled, fabric blinds are located in the upper part of the window, in a disassembled position – they close the window opening like a fabric screen. The model is laconic and easily fits into interiors of various stylistic directions.
