Tie top curtains are embellishments or small fabric strips attached to the curtain heads. It has the functional value of holding the curtain in place around the curtain rods. The outcome: an informal look and normally employed with light weight fabrics.
Next we move on to curtains with attached valance. By attaching a valance you are treated to an enhanced double layer look. This employment comes handy when space is at premium. It has also the added attraction of availability in varied colors. It is mainly used in formal settings and is very popular as home theater curtains.
Light is diffused through sheer/light fabrics and we can therefore use this principle to create a wonderful ambiance within a room. Silk organza or muslin will be ideal fabrics to use but you could also create amazing unconventional window dressings with sari fabric, netting or lace. Browse around at flea markets, thrift stores or garage sales and you’ll be amazed at what you can find that can inspire you to create striking designs for your windows.
Repeat the process on the top right hand side of the same curtain, now find the center between the two roses and to create a bit of interest attach the middle rose slightly lower than the rose on the left and the right. Place the fourth rose underneath the third middle rose but slightly lower. Place the fifth rose to the left side of the fourth one but slightly lower (should be in line with the first rose attached at the top left side of the curtain), now the attach the sixth rose to the right of the fourth rose but slightly lower (should be in line with the second rose attached at the top right side of the curtain. Your sequence of six is now complete and I personally find that this pattern is most pleasing to the eye, you could of course embellish the whole curtain, it really depends on the look which you are trying to achieve.
