Cheer Up Your Home with Yellow Chevron Curtains
Are you blessed to live in a sunny part of the world? If you'd like more light in your life, let the sunshine in with chevron curtains. Even if it's gray and dreary outdoors, you can shut the drapes and let their cheerful color brighten your home.
As we've seen in my previous articles, the chevron pattern is always a popular and versatile look in home decor. And when it comes in yellow, that zigzag stripe is even more fun. Today we'll look at four different styles of these funky window treatments.
Sunny and Sheer
If you live for summer and “too much sun” is not in your vocabulary, then some thin sheers are the best option for you. Fortunately, these yellow sheer curtains also happen to be absolutely beautiful and stylish. They are extra long and are meant to drape on the floor slightly for a more traditional look.
They're perfect for a window with a less than perfect view, to give you privacy without sacrificing the precious natural light that streams through them.
Depending on your personal tastes, these can be ordered with metal grommets or without.
For the times when window treatments are not just decorative but necessary, a good set of heavy blackout curtains is a lifesaver. If you live near a busy street, you'll be amazed how well they block out extra noise as well.
Shown here are some mustard yellow curtains in a nursery- a very important room to keep quiet and dark so that you and your young one can both get a better night's rest.
They're especially useful during the summer to block out excess light on a south-facing window, or to keep some extra heat inside and save on heating costs in winter.
In a shorter, more modern length, these yellow and white chevron curtains are as useful as they are attractive.
Valances are an elegant and multi-functional design solution. When paired with drapes they add an extra flourish of sophistication. Here I've chosen a flat, roller blind style and paired it with horizontal Venetian blinds. This is a smart looking solution which hides the top of the blinds.
They can also be used alone, whether it's just for decoration or to add some extra privacy while still enjoying a partial view.
This dark yellow valance is gathered at the top to create a pretty ruffle effect.
For the Shower
Have fun with these chevron shower curtains in a variety of patterns. Shower curtains are so affordable that they're often where we get to experiment with bright graphics.
Try a gray checked chevron print with your initials printed on it.
Or, mix it up with two shades of gray and yellow.
These choices are so up-beat that you might catch yourself singing in the shower a little more often than you already do!
Country Farmhouse Chic
Placing yellow chevron curtains in a finished interior really shows what's possible with this look. I think it's full of retro charm, with some traditional elements to keep the look cozy and down-to-earth.
I picture this setting as a farmhouse in the country. The short drapes allow you to look out into nature while blocking some of the afternoon sun. The twisted wrought iron curtain rod adds to the older farmhouse feeling. A potted plant and some glazed flower vases let you bring even more of nature inside.
I love this 1950s style credenza. Its pops of bright yellow color in between the drawers make it a perfect match for the window treatment. With these bright bursts of color, I felt it was important to keep the wall a neutral beige. I went with a solid warm color to keep a sense of calm and comfort.
I chose a traditional old world style clock with a distressed, brushed copper frame to give the room a sense of history. Some decorative candles add that cozy finishing touch.
