Cafe Curtains

Happy Friday, friends!  It’s been a busy week for me and I’m looking toward another busy weekend.  Summer is wrapping up and I really cannot wait to bust out my Fall decor.  😉  Someone is going to have to contain me until mid-September.

So…let’s talk about cafe curtains (aka short-tier curtains).  Throughout most of my time as an interior designer, I have kind of been against these window treatments.  They always seemed really dowdy to me and lacking in personality.  I was big on the folded roman shade and tailored long drapes, but not so much the cafe curtain.  Until I started noticing that I was seeing all sorts of interiors with cafe curtains that I was just a little bit obsessing over.  And then came the idea for this post… a collection of interiors with cafe curtains that are decidedly perfect.

If you’re looking to maintain privacy while not losing out on natural light, cafe curtains are a great option.  They can also be customized per your style — so if natural and breezy is your thing, or pleated and tailored is your jam, they can be made to suit your interior.  As far as fabrics go, I’m partial to a white or off-white variation, but obviously colors work and don’t forget the option of trimming the leading edge.
