Why are Two Tone Curtains so Popular in Thailand?
Modern home decor favors substance over style: Thai culture encompasses many aspects of life such as lifestyle, music, architecture, and even interior design. In Thailand, the trends of home decor and interior design have moved towards a more modern style which usually implies using curtains and furniture that have simple, basic colors and shapes.
Modern living room curtains are simple mono-chromatic colored with matching furniture to conform to a uniform interior design concept. The concept emphasizes on clean, no-frills appearance, a stark contrast to the fancy, intricately designed curtains back in the day.
Curtains in the ultra modern sense: The popular curtains used are pleated curtains (three pinch pleated curtains) and the grommet curtains (eyelet curtains). Many also use simple Roman curtains for small or narrow windows and doors. The colors of curtains in modern designed homes are base colors like white, cream, earth tone colors, and other simple shades. The purpose for using these curtains are for mostly for function as Thailand is a hot tropical country with high levels of heat and humidity. In the contemporary concept, curtains are not supposed to be fancy or used for coloring the interiors of homes.
Sometimes choosing just a single color for curtains is difficult, as one color is limited in generating a lively and vibrant ambience. Therefore, multi-colored curtains are often preferred for certain homes where color needs to be injected to foster an ambient, lively atmosphere. Multi-colored curtains combine the dynamic chemistry between several palettes to produce a radiant, poly-chromatic appearance, and is desirable for rooms with dull, bland appearances.
Curtains, in the traditional sense, are used mainly to beautify homes: Nevertheless, many residents living in Thailand still prefer to use curtains in the traditional concept, which is to give color and atmosphere to homes. Curtains are essentially the face of the interior, their palette and style are highly influential towards the appearance of the home. Instead of giving in to the modern style of trying to blend the curtains in with the walls and window so that they are barely noticeable, they place a high emphasis on the importance of colors and layers in window treatments.
Different ways to fashion room ambience: Using sheers to add softness to the room atmosphere, using tab top curtains or grommet curtains to add fun and energy to the room, or simply using colors that are cool and calming to generate a peaceful, relaxing ambience are some examples of using curtains in the traditional concept.
Two tone colored and multi-colored curtains are still as popular as ever because they are effectively more vibrant and less restricted than standard, monochromatic colored curtains. In two-tone curtains, the palette of colors can be used to mix and match in a variety of ways to produce the home atmosphere in the the desired effect.
Colorful curtains create a more lively ambience: Some people find choosing a single color for curtains to be a difficult task, as one color is limited in generating a lively, vibrant ambience to a home. Instead they prefer multi-colored curtains or the more common design of “two tone” colors which combines the dynamic chemistry between two palettes to produce a radiant, poly-chromatic appearance. Two tone curtains are popular as they are generally more vibrant and less restricted than standard, single color curtains. The colors can be used to mix and match in a variety of ways to recreate the room atmosphere in the the desired effect.
Multi-colored curtains help to create a more animated, lively atmosphere to interior design, thus making homes look cozy and full of life. To some, this is more preferable than the mono-chromatic style of modern curtains which values simple, minimalistic decor.
Examples of a two tone curtain palette include the colors brown and grey, red and gold, black and white, blue and silver, red and silver etc. These colors exude mood and character in their own way, however when combined with other colors, their qualities may complement to produce an aura that is aimed towards a specific effect such as royalty, romance, nature, country, fun, exoticism, tranquility, cute and sweet etc. Two tone curtains are highly effective ambience generators and they are especially useful when one single color is not enough to achieve the desired effect.
