Point Piper - Art Deco InspiredContemporary Dining Room, Sydney
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Ready to entertainIn this contemporary Art Deco apartment overlooking Sydney Harbour, shot-silk curtains by Jim Thompson serve as a rich and dramatic foil to the architect-designed timber dining table. The fabric is a shade of olive green with an orange-brown overtone, which references the dining table and orange leather-upholstered Thonet dining chairs.Browse more rooms with colourful curtains
WHAT STYLES TO CONSIDERThe curtain style you choose should be in harmony with the style of your home. Each room is likely to be slightly different but should follow form. For example you may have two to three layers in a bedroom – something decorative to dress the window, something sheer for privacy and a blockout layer to control light. If privacy is not a concern in your living room, it may only need a beautiful set of sheer curtains. A nursery, however, will need a blockout layer to go with some industrial strength sound proofing!TIP: Think about how you would describe your home to a stranger. This will help you decide the style of curtain to choose.
Create drama with curtainsThe presence of striking floor-length curtains can really emulate a dramatic style within the dining space. The colour, length and sheer volume of the curtains will affect the overall look. Curtains also help frame the entire dining setting, which adds to the opulence. I love how this Art Deco-style setting has been complemented by the simple, but voluminous, curtains. The lines are clean, the colours are warm, and it’s an inviting space in which to entertain.See more of this beautiful Point Piper home
