Ombre Curtains & Two-Tone Window Drapes

When whispers make statements!

If monochromes leave you unimpressed and colour riots leave you overwhelmed, our collection of ombre curtains & drapes might just be the answer you’ve been looking for.

Ombre - literally meaning ‘shaded’ in French - refers to the design technique of gently blending colours or shades from light to dark or vice versa.  Like a surprise that greets you unexpectedly and leaves you delighted, ombre curtains blend colours and shades beautifully, thereby earning the alternate names -  ‘two-tone’ or ‘gradient’ curtains.

Decorating with ombre curtains is nothing less than a  journey into elegant simplicity, and you’re invited to join in as our designers spill their top ideas, tips, and tricks for styling ombre drapery into your space.

Styling Your Space with Ombre Curtains: Top Ideas & Tips

There are many reasons to opt for ombre curtains, the most obvious one being that they stamp the space with a unique character and make a colour statement without being too loud. For a home that is discreet in its palette choices and yet does not want to renounce the prospects of a foray into colours, ombre drapes provide the perfect intermediary solution. 

While ombre drapes gel with any space and decor style, there are certain occasions where they are true problem solvers. When planned correctly, their potential can be tapped optimally, but lacking due consideration, one can easily miss the mark. So, our home stylist experts bring to you our top tips to style your ombre drapes correctly and to sync them with your spaces organically:

INTRODUCE A BOLD HUE: Breaking a monotonous setting with a surprise element like a bold colour is sometimes necessary to generate visual interest. But getting an entire drapery set in that colour may completely overthrow the design. Here ombre is a godsend because the surprise, which is only a hint, is unveiled gently. In minimalist homes where saturated colours are a rarity, two-tone ombre drapes fit the bill for their restrained venture into colours.

HIT THE PALETTE SPOT-ON: Within a monochromatic colour scheme, drapery that works on the same colour formula is befitting. Therefore, our two-tone ombre drapes with white graduating into colour are perfect for such interiors. It brings various shades of that one colour to play, effectively tying all the primary and accent hues together.  

MIND THE WINDOW'S SCALE: Since ombre is a progressive colouration, you need to ensure that the drapery size offers the scope for its complete unfolding. For that, the window must be tall enough and have no obstructions underneath so that floor-length drapery can be hung. Short curtains may not offer enough fabric span to capture the entirety of the colour gradients. 

ENABLE FULL VIEW: The room’s layout should be such that the curtains’ full length is visible. So, if you have a couch or a console blocking the view of the lower portion, the colour at the bottom of the drapery does not come into the picture at all. When opting for ombre drapes, rearrange the furniture in order to enable full view.

BALANCE SOLIDS AND PATTERNS: Ombre curtains perform a balancing act in your decor between solids and patterns. If solids far outweigh patterns in the room, a plain-coloured drapery may make the room look cold and sterile. On the other hand, if you have a pattern overload to deal with, patterned drapes can make it look messy. If you fail to find a solid-coloured drapery in the desired palette, ombre drapes can plug the gap.
