Everything is made from details and details sometimes mean far more than the whole. People who really wander how to wear watches properly exist and they are really concerned in this issue.

pelmet Any designer would say that the basic component in an interior is the material. Namely it creates beauty and aesthetics. It makes the interior look warm and cozy or, on contrary, strange, cold and dull. Scrappy rugs that once were our interest (lines in stores, special coupons, etc.), are now out of fashion. A rug placed on wall is a sign of bad taste now. 

Pile coverings instead of rugs are now used to cover floors. But there must be something in its place. So what is now replacing them? First, they are the decorative scrappy blankets that have their origin from ancient Indian art. However, they have been popular worldwide for a long time. The "soft paintings" sewed with a variety of multi-colored pieces have been there in our villages for a long time.

A "rustic interior" is a real trend. Such covers were once used for bedding, but they have beeb used as original wall decorations for a long time now. They are sewed from casual and simple pieces of cloth (staple, satin, calico) and skilfully selected in an accurate order with a certain colour rhythm. They are perceived as real colour pictures. If there is a desire and imagination, then do the sewing yourself (it is easy!). Do not rely on specialists. The covers are usually sold in art salons and produced in many places since they are fashionable. Nevertheless, craftsmen especially from Uglich Art Center who has a lot of experience in this kind of art, are recommended. Local products are highly colorful and unique.

Another type of a wall decoration is the coarse sackcloth. It also has a "rustic style"! There is a lively drawing on top of it. Such pieces of sackcloth that are decorated with barely visible lines of the future ornament are sold in Western shops. African, South American and Japanese motifs are usually applied. They are sewed with a big needle and thick thread of various colors. Just sit and embroider. But for the lazy ones (skill-then, here it is trivial), finished products are being sold with exotic flowers, birds and plants.

What has Shalyapin got to do with it?

Nevertheless, windows are still the main woven decoration of an apartment while curtains are their traditional decoration. It is just that a special significance is being attached to curtains. Let's just say we have come into the fashion of multilayered curtain tulles again, door curtains and shutters. It is, of course, an art to make an original composition from all of these items. Here is tulle. There has been recently a great variety of this material from Arab countries. They are decorated with gold, ornament and images of birds and beasts. "Shalyapin" wallpaper with large and bright drawings remind us of something we had before in fashion. For what reason was the great artist offended? It seems the lack of taste is not its feature. Do not be tempted with the brightness! A drawing on tulle should be barely noticeable. It is even better for the small or large "fishing" net to do without them and nothing else.

Variety: a decoration consisting of a set of individual silky laces. It looks quite impressive and at the same time rigorous. Why should tulle be ascetic? It should because the main color blow falls on the door curtains. They are actually the main color spot in the room. Door curtains can be made from any heavy material such as moiré, velvet, thick cotton and tapestry. Such material is packed in folds somewhere at the windowsill level using thick woven cable that has brushes and it looks very spectacular. It is usually decorated with fringe at the bottom.

As a tribute to old times the Third layer (or fourth if we consider the jalousie) is a pelmet: upper, decorative part of door curtains, a tribute to retro, old memory of the ancient English fashion during the Elizabethan era. Pelmet can be rectangular (but then folds need to be skillfully done on it "harmonically") or a figure cut out on the bottom in the form of "arches", rhythmically repeating and alternating window shutters. The edge of pelmet is sheathed with braid that is selected according to the tone of the curtain.

Fringe is by the way unsuitable here. It would make the overall outfit of windows too heavy and also, it would obstruct light. This happens in this way: a beautiful door curtain is chosen, and its drawing and general tone is spectacular. Moreover, it matches harmoniously with the overall interior colors. However, the material is too light and it does not look that beautiful. Don't worry! Door curtain can be either done on a pad or folded several times. Yes, fringe would make it heavier. There is a method presently used in some shower curtains: at the edge of the curtain, a thick lead wire is "concealed", which makes it heavier and stronger. The remaining "woven" elements can be used as pile cover for ottoman, decorated covers that are spread on chairs, pillows-cushion and much more. The interior material is always beautiful and pleasant.
