18 Sleek Vintage Curtains: Effortless Yet Bold For Any Type Of Style

You should probably share this:

You don’t realize quite how important curtains are until you’ve slept in a room without them. Apart from the obvious morning light situation, a naked window can make you feel exposed and allow a chilly breeze to set in (which no one likes). Curtains are a necessity, but they can also be cool.

The wonderful thing about curtains is that, like rugs or paintings, they can change an entire room with minimal effort and cost. They double as wall art if you choose ones that are bold, colorful, or textured - and you can easily change them if you get bored.
