Turn up the texture

23 May 2019

Picking the right curtains can be challenging – there are practically endless options out there. In some spaces, you might want them to stand out; in others, blend in. But what if you’re looking for something in the middle?

Thanks to their woven-in pattern, these three designs from the Resene Curtain Collection are far more texturally interesting than a plain curtain but still subtle enough that they won’t try to steal the show.

Resene Curtain Collection Generation is an appealing jacquard design. As it is in a larger scale, this stunning tree motif is designed make rooms look larger and more inviting. It comes in three colours: Naturalle, Mocha and Bud.

Try Naturalle (shown) with walls in a warm white, such as Resene Spanish White, a greyed taupe like Resene Coffee Break or a classic turquoise like Resene Sea Nymph, then add in accessories in a soft blush like Resene Despacito.

top tip: When selecting paint colours to complement your Resene curtains and drapes, always check a physical sample of the fabric and test out the paint at home first as lighting can vary and to ensure they co-ordinate with other parts of your room. Online paint colours are for inspiration only – pick up Resene testpots or view the large A4 colour swatches in the Resene ColorShop’s colour library to see the true Resene paint colour.

Resene Curtain Collection Chia is a textured sheer that is anything but plain. The weave uses different thicknesses and brightness in threads to create depth and direction. It comes in four colours: Blonde, Latte, Stone and Slate.

Try Latte (shown) with walls in a pewter, such as Resene Inside Back, a cloudy grey like Resene Grey Seal or a soft dusty blue like Resene Half Duck Egg Blue with trim in Resene Sea Fog.

Resene Curtain Collection Intersection is a fabric that brings art deco style into the modern world. The bold metallic trellis pattern contrasts harmoniously with the textured ground; reminiscent of luxury, but sophisticated in execution. It comes in three colours: Naturalle, Hydra and Charcoal.

Try Charcoal (shown) with a pale taupe, such as Resene Eighth Stonewashed, a green-grey like Resene Helix or a dark faded denim like Resene Safehaven with accessories in an on-trend mustard, such as Resene Thumbs Up.
