If I say the phrase “beaded curtain” what is the first image that is conjured in your mind? For me it is of those horrible brown and yellow wooden bead things that are always a feature in the seedy home of every low budget movie. I’m pretty sure that for most folk this is the case. A few decades of bad design judgement made by stoned hippies in the 70’s and beaded curtains have been relegated to the back corner of the bad design idea annuls for life!
But perhaps not! Not all beaded curtains are quite so bad. There are many available nowadays that are actually quite beautiful and would look stunning in the design and décor of the majority of homes. Nowadays you can find funky beaded curtains, elegant beaded curtains, beaded curtains for little girl’s rooms and beaded curtains for lounges!
Here are some great design and décor ideas using beaded curtains that might get you to reconsider your original opinion of the poor beaded curtain!
Ok, so you can still use beaded curtains in doorways, but why not use something beautiful and sparkly instead of a wooden one. The beaded curtain featured below is a beautiful crystal beaded affair that would look gorgeous in a little girl or teenagers bedroom or bathroom door!
ticking with bedroom décor ideas, here is another great one. If you have a funky room, or you are inclined toward more bohemian design and décor, then this décor idea is gorgeous!
