Linen curtains in the interior (20 photos): naturalness and style


Curtains complement any of the most modern interior design. With the help of well-chosen fabrics with a specific pattern, interesting texture, organic design, you can create a completely extraordinary home composition.



Flax is the oldest plant used to produce high quality fabrics. The specific qualities of this plant base predetermine the high price policy of products.

To the touch, the fabric is rather coarse and dense. Natural color ranges from muted white to light brown.

There are the following types of flax as textiles for interior design:

  1. Unbleached canvas (rough texture, reminiscent of homespun cloth brownish);
  2. Dense flax (imitation of burlap, often decorated with a pattern, ethnic embroidery and lace);
  3. Ultra-thin flax, often a little transparent (the tenderness of the fabric is emphasized with laces, braid or gives a specific relief);
  4. Flax with additives that prevent creasing of textiles (most often resort to the use of Dacron, and in more expensive fabrics - silk).




Linen curtains in various stylistic directions

Natural linen, imitation of burlap, dyed versions with synthetic additives: any kind of textiles can be beaten with high quality in modern interior designs. The main condition: organically combine curtains with other key attributes of a particular style. Sometimes the same type of curtain will manifest itself in different interiors in a new way.

Mediterranean theme and provence

Lightened creamy white or yellowish beige linen will perfectly fit into the chocolate-purple palette of the kitchen or living room in a Mediterranean style. The density of the fabric should match the texture of textiles, which is present in the interior of the room.

To create a luxurious design of a bedroom or hall in the French style, Provence recommend using light fabrics with lace trims, bright embroidery or spectacular tastes. Imitation of ethno-patterns or the presence of special specific relief on the surface of textiles is allowed.

Linen textiles are quite comfortable in terms of various stylistic combinations and creative experiments. However, there are a number of taboos that everyone should know about:

  • Linen fabrics do not accept an oversupply of decorative elements. Roman construction and simple grommets are enough;
  • Curtains do not need lambrequins, botifini and any lining;
  • Linen curtains are not combined with pearls, rhinestones, fringe and other "glamorous" attributes.

In modern or fancy interiors with a claim to luxury flax does not look organically. Empire, baroque, rococo styles, rich classical linen textiles are completely alien.
