TIE - TOP CURTAINs These curtains give the illusion of an unstructured, slightly feminine look. Again, they are suitable for either lined or unlined curtains. One can add detailing by using a contrasting fabric for the ties or edging. Just be warned, these curtains are better for windows that aren't in regular use as the ties don't move as easily. So perhaps use this decorative treatment to soften a room.
