The Royal Family-Approved Curtain Trend That’s Making a Comeback
They’re romantic, they’re regal and they’re taking over our Insta feed: Friend, acquaint thyself with portieres (the fancy French term for drapes hung over doorways).
While they look rather lavish (dare we say, extra?), this treatment is, in fact, très practical: Portiere
We love the softness they add to a room and their opulent, granny-chic vibes (after all, the queen herself dabbles in door drapery). The fact that they also lower the heating bill? Well, that has us Googling curtain hardware. Here, a few modern interpretations.
