There are many variations on the embellishments that you could use. Feathers work really well and so do mirrors, bearing in mind that feathers would have to be stitched onto the curtain and mirrors will have to be glued on. NB When gluing on the mirrors first glue a piece of fabric onto the back of the mirror, then glue the mirror onto the curtain; this will create traction between the mirror and the curtain, enabling the mirror to stick easily. Also, use glue that will become transparent once it has dried, impasto gel is extremely effective when used as glue for this type of application.
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.
