Start at the top left hand corner of the curtain, using the awl push a hole through the organza where you have made your first mark, NB it’s easier and is likely to make a cleaner hole if you hold the fabric on either side of the mark that you made whilst pushing the awl through. Once the hole has been made (ensure that it is big enough for the stem to go through) push the stem of the rose through the hole and secure the rose by pushing the plastic backing back onto the stem which will now be facing the back of the curtain, push it up as far as it will go, this will ensure that the rose won’t fall off when it’s being laundered.
The carriers normally contain a nylon axle, two free-rolling nylon wheels, a nylon swivel stern that is designed to be tangle-free and steel hooks that are chrome-plated. Nylon materials are used as curtain carriers since they would not easily break or rust and are highly durable. However, the curtain carrier glide could also be made with a nylon swivel, one-piece nylon spool, and steel hook of chrome plating. Another type of curtain carrier is the breakaway carrier, comprised of nylon wheels, hook, and body. The tracking for curtains would vary from one location to another to suit the type of construction of the room.
Whenever we consider dressing a window we need to understand how we react to light. If the same type of lighting is used in every room of the house it can create a sense of monotony. The senses of a human being are stimulated by variation and contrast. Light affects the way in which we see and perceive colors, shapes and textures. If lighting is not used correctly it can cause a space to appear dull and washed out. The opposite applies if we are able to use lighting to our advantage, we could create a sense of warmth and intimacy as well as bring a certain energy and mood to a particular area, particularly in the bedroom or living room.
Once the curtain has been hung it is ready to be embellished. Start with the left or right curtain first and open it up so that it is spread out wide across the window, this way so you can see exactly where you have made the marks and where you are going to place the roses. For this purpose I am going to attach six roses to each curtain using a sequence of three. Remove the plastic backing from the rose by giving it a good pull; your rose will now be in two parts, (the backing and also the rose and stem).
