Fabrics & Linens: White and Gray Curtains in Barcelona

Christine Chang Hanway October 14, 2011

We have a love-hate relationship with curtains: They add texture and warmth, but they can also hide or mask the architecture of a space. So when we spotted the home of Barcelona-based designer Montse Esteva on Kikette, we took notice. Esteva uses blocks of gray and white curtains to bring a modern accent to his high-ceilinged, traditional living room; by installing the curtain rods several inches above the French doors, he highlights (rather than hides) the traditional door frames.
