Do you have any plum coloured fabrics for curtains?

Proud and regal or soft and sweet, plum fabrics range from vibrant violet to pale lavender. Whether you blanket a whole room with the colour or just use it as an accent, this mystical hue is bound to make a statement. 

Plum purple curtain fabric offers a spirited mood.  However, to add a more youthful feel, mix plum purple curtains with other colours, such as grey, green, pink, and white.

My Plum fabrics are a soft aubergine, a warm shade of purple, homage to red and purple, with a touch of yellow.

This Plum shade paired with a mossy green is common in French and shabby chic decors.

My Plum fabric range can be found in my Orchard Collection. I have combined it with Kale green in several coordinating designs. You can buy my plum shade fabrics by the metre or yard to make cushions, curtains, blinds and more.

What colours go well with plum curtain fabrics?

Several shades of green, especially Kale and Olive look great with plum. Kale green is as earthy as it gets! See my Fruit Garden design and also May Blossom, which major on the Plum colour with an accent of Kale green.

Any of my greens from Sepals and Petals to Simple Ticking in Kale will contrast well with my Plum fabrics.

A touch of Charcoal grey or Dove grey also coordinate well and ground the colour scheme in a room, three colours always make the room look less contrived. So, try my Plain Linen Union in Charcoal and Dove in particular, for a bed valance or cushions.  Contrast with pale pink velvet curtains for a vintage feel.

You could bring these same colours in with a little pattern; try to contemporary Sepals and Petals. My Moss green velvet is the perfect tone, to upholster a chair in in a room with plum coloured curtains, be it a bedroom or sitting room.

How to measure up for your curtains:

A video guide to help to measure up 

Please remember that pattern repeats and fabric widths are automatically calculated if you order through our web site. It is advisable to fit your pole or track before ordering your curtains. Your pole or track should ideally extend 30cms on each side of the window so when drawn back light is maximised and at least 15cms above the top of the window to block out as little light as possible again. Please use metric units only when measuring.

Poles:

WidthIf you have a pole, measure the distance between the finials. (A)

Finished Length for pencil pleat, triple pleat, double pleat and inverted pleat - when measuring the finished length using a curtain pole, we recommend allowing between 2cms and 5cms above the eyelet on the underside of the curtain ring, depending on how much of the pole and rings you wish to hide. From the measurement you choose above the eyelet, measure down to the bottom of the hem (see B & C) and that is your finished length measurement. 

Finished length for cottage pleat (choice of either 5cm or 10cm depth - see below)- these have to be made using a 3cm single position tape, which makes the finished length non adjustable. To measure the finished length for this header, please provide us with the distance from the eyelet to the floor, and depending on your choice of depth, add 5cm or 10cm accordingly.

Finished length for flop over frill - these curtains have to be made with a 3cm single position tape which makes the finished length non adjustable. To measure the finished length for this header, just give us the measurement from the eyelet to the floor. Don't add any extra for the frill, we will do that.

Please note, we will add 25cm for hem allowance.

                                   

                                           

 

Tracks

Width - If you have a track, measure the total length of the track, including any overlap where the curtains meet in the middle.

Finished length: For pencil pleat, triple pleat, double pleat and inverted pleat - when measuring the finished length of your curtains using a track add 1cm above the track (to hide the track) down to the bottom of the hem. (D)*

Finished length for cottage pleat (choice of either 5cm or 10cm depth - see below)- these have to be made using a 3cm single position tape, which makes the finished length non adjustable. To measure the finished length for this header, please provide us with the distance from the eyelet to the floor, and depending on your choice of depth, add 5cm or 10cm accordingly.

Finished length for flop over frill curtains - these have to made with a one inch single position tape which makes the finished length non-adjustable. To get your finished length measurement, just give us the measurement from the eyelet to the floor and don't add any extra for the frill as we will do this.
