If you want to walk into your living room or bedroom every day and say to yourself, “I just love these beautifully dressed windows!” This is the room that I’ve dreamed of!” Then discover the elegance, drama and practicality of curtains with double curtain rods.
Let’s take the journey together and follow these 3 very easy steps to romance your décor.
1. Fall in Love with your Fabrics
Stunning pink English roses? Subtle pale blue and white nautical stripes? Boldly colored silk drapes crafted by hand from magnificent vintage Indian sarees? Whether your vision draws you to the exotic or the contemporary, falling in love with the fabrics of your curtains and drapes will set the mood of your room and be an inspiration to you every day. Joy, elation, happiness, these are all powerful feelings. Can you capture such heady emotions from your choice of fabrics?
By selecting a sheer or transparent fabric as the first set of curtains, next to the window, you can choose to allow the warmth and radiance of the sun to pour into your room during the day. Many of today’s top interior designers are selecting exquisite, delicate voiles for the sheer set of curtains and richly textured crushed velvets or stunning, exotic patterned denser fabrics for the second set.
In many cases the second set acts as black-out curtain allowing complete privacy and keeping the cold winds or distracting light at bay. These two options in one set of curtains provide you with total versatility, sophisticated style and a beautiful, dramatic component to your décor.

Continental Window Fashions Pro Tips:
Find your design inspiration. Whether it is a paint color, a drapery hardware collection, a lighting fixture; find one thing that you really love and build your design concept from there. It will simplify the process tremendously and will tie everything together seamlessly.
Choose a main drapery fabric that features a color that you want to showcase, as draperies become the focal point of the room, then incorporate that color into accents throughout the room in pillows, throws and accessories – it will give that "Designer Touch” to the overall design of the room.
Whether your design concept is Contemporary, Transitional, or Traditional, consider incorporating crystal or glass finials, as they add an unexpected touch of sparkle.
Tie in your drapery hardware finish to other finishes in the room, it will make the overall design of the room feel cohesive once complete.
