Tweed curtains, tweed cushions, tweed design
Almost in every atelier tweed curtains can be made-up: they look splendid and, thanks to their thickness, protect a room from draughts and evoke sensation of isolation from outside. Tweed curtains take side tones up and keep warmth in the house. Tweed combines with velvet and satin perfectly, here one can experiment with design as much as one likes. Tweed valances (short horizontal curtains, whose width is equal a ledge and which decorate the upper part of the window) are ideal for long tulle curtains.
Tweed cushions will help to make comfort in cold weather: the warm and soft atmosphere will not let you out! The more cushions you will have, the better it will be: you can make a warm cushion kingdom. And it is not obligatory, to have cushions of classical shape: it would be jollier to get pillow pets, for example, tweed pillows in the shape of a dog. This advice is opportune for the admirers of Provence style in interior, where natural fabrics are an obligatory part.
The durable wearproof tweed is also indispensable for upholstering of chairs, sofas and armchairs.
In good hotels in Scotland and in some mansions tweed is used instead of carpets: it is warm, practical and splendid. Of course, there is no need to make such a hotel at home, but it is possible to cover staircase in a country house with checked tweed, it looks original and very stylish. Besides, designers use tweed for finishing of walls. To finish the entire wall with tweed would be too much, but to decorate a part of a wall with this noble material is quite possible. In combination with furniture made of wood of warm tones tweed will create an inimitable atmosphere.
