White tulle

Window decoration plays an important role in the interior.. Correctly chosen tulle and curtains will create the necessary atmosphere at home, adjust the degree of illumination of the room, help you retire and hide your life from prying eyes.


Like many other names for fabrics, the origin of this word is French, and the name was given to it by the city of the same name Tulle, whose inhabitants in the 19th century were the largest producers of this material..

Interesting! The word “tulle” is masculine, not feminine, as most mistakenly believe.

Initially, this material was used for sewing dresses and underwear, and much later began to be used for decorating windows. Now it is a translucent thin fabric made from polyester fibers, dyed in various colors. Despite the variety of shades, white tulle remains the most popular option today.. It will look equally beautiful in any room, regardless of its purpose and design, and be combined with all types of curtains..

Varieties by type of fabric

The selected tulle fabric can radically change the look of any room, therefore, first of all, you should familiarize yourself with a variety of fabrics by type and method of weaving:

  • Organza. It is made by twisting threads of silk or viscose. It is a thin transparent material, quite tough in sensations. Curtains made of this material are suitable for a room made in any style. For example, light cream tulle in combination with thick brown curtains in the living room will look just great..

  • Veil. The fabric is more delicate and almost opaque. Most often, it looks harmoniously without curtains, but a win-win option would be to combine it with dark curtains. Such a black-and-white solution will be both classic and elegant and appropriate in any interior at the same time..

  • Net. A material with a lattice structure. Ideal for use in the hot season due to its ability to let in a lot of sunlight and air. Will look great in the kitchen in tandem with fabric curtains with a bright pattern of flowers.

  • Kiseya. A curtain, which is a set of separately hanging threads. Such tulles with decorative embroidery on the top are gaining special popularity now. In addition to windows, it will look great in the doorway..

Knowing what types of tulle are there, it will not be difficult to choose the one that will fully match the taste of the buyer and the style of the interior..

Interior use

White symbolizes purity and innocence, visually makes the room brighter and more spacious. Tulle of this color is in perfect harmony with almost any shade, is extremely unpretentious in care and washing and indicates a good taste and accuracy of the owner. Regardless of the style in which the room is made, white tulle will perfectly complement any room..


For a style whose main characteristic is simplicity, elaborate and bright silks with intricate patterns are completely inappropriate. The ideal solution would be to use floor curtains, made on a white matte background, which seem to seem to be a continuation of the wall..

This option is especially good for the bedroom – tulle scatters sunlight well, which will allow you to illuminate the room well and at the same time avoid direct hit of blinding rays. The opacity of white tulle is also important for a room designed for sleeping and relaxing..

Japanese style

It is based on minimalism and the philosophy of the Japanese perception of the world – the desire for harmony and simplicity, renunciation of the bustle and anxieties of the outside world. And these trends are reflected in the typical Japanese-style colors – white, black and red..

Solid white curtains will serve as a good complement to the classic black and red curtains with silver, made in Japanese style. During the day in such a room it will be light and sunny, and at night it will be possible to reign an atmosphere of comfort and solitude..

The Japanese pay special attention to the meaning of color, therefore, delving into their traditions, it will become clear that such a color scheme will be especially good for the bedroom: white symbolizes divine powers, red – love and protection from evil spirits, diseases and misfortunes, and black – the color of joy.


One of the most popular styles at the moment. The style is primarily functional, devoid of pretentiousness, therefore, the decor in the room will be extremely restrained and minimized. Constructivism is characterized by the severity of lines and shapes, space saving thanks to the furniture built into the walls, and, of course, a special role is given to the lighting of the room. Many designers prefer huge panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows that occupy almost the entire wall..

Constructivism is not inherent in the use of curtains, because it is natural light that is most appreciated, so white organza curtains will fit in very well into a living room decorated in this style.


A style that allows you to plunge into the charm of nature, create a special atmosphere of home warmth and comfort in the room. Naturalness is its main principle, the desire to transfer all the delights of suburban life to an apartment located even in the very center of the metropolis.

Natural colors are inherent in this style – green, brown, terracotta, sand. The colors of the fabrics used should be light and cheerful, while dark colors are best avoided. Very appropriate in a country-style kitchen, they will look milky translucent curtains in tandem with polka dot curtains reaching the middle of the window or decorated with a border.


A style that has the same features as the previous one, but is distinguished by special romance and sophistication. Unlike rustic Country, Provence is more elegant, abounding in the interior with a variety of bright fabrics with floral patterns.

In this style, colors should mean tenderness and softness, therefore it is better to replace cold white tulle with milky or ivory, which will look much more spectacular and atmospheric. As for the curtains that match it, short “cafe” curtains, cream or pale blue curtains with a floral pattern that reach the floor, and pale gold curtains with fringes will look equally appropriate..


This style originated in the middle of the 18th century and was used to create palace bedrooms, living rooms and dance halls. Rococo emphasizes the true splendor of the room, its sophistication and sophistication. In modern interiors, it is not as theatrical and pompous as in the past, however, designers now, as before, strive to satisfy every whim of the imagination, without even trying to give it any rationality and functionality..

In this style, good lighting is very important, but most often artificial lighting is preferred, while the windows and curtains on them perform a purely decorative role.. Few people can imagine Rococo without appropriate curtains and curtains; great attention is paid to them when creating an interior..

Light curtains are decorated with all kinds of ruffles, embroidery and guipure, soft muted colors are chosen for them, such as white-pink, pearl, beige and all shades of warm white. Bright curtains made of expensive fabrics such as brocade, silk and satin, decorated with flounces, floral, monogram and floral patterns are suitable for them..

For a nursery or teenage room

Special attention is paid to the design of the children’s room. Each parent cares about creating a room in which the child will be as comfortable and safe as possible. Room lighting is also incredibly important, as is the right choice of curtains – they should let in enough sunlight and at the same time not be a dust collector. Tulle comes to the rescue again. Organza and veil do not collect much dust and are easy to wash.

Since tulle is most often chosen as an addition to curtains, it is best to take neutral white, which will suit any interior, regardless of the child’s gender and his taste preferences..

It will look equally good in a one-year-old girl’s room with pink curtains, and in a fifteen-year-old teenager’s bedroom with roller blinds..

Use in clothing

Remembering the French masters, one cannot but say a few words about the use of this material in clothing. Its popularity peaked in 2016, but this trend remains relevant to this day..

Many have definitely seen such a bold solution as tulle skirts. White and airy, they added lightness and a certain dreaminess to the image and many people liked it.. The indisputable success was reinforced by the proposal of famous designers to wear tulle over clothes as capes, and just use it for decoration.. It would seem that this is incompatible – a spring tweed coat and a translucent tulle fabric on its floors, however, such things have found their place in the wardrobe of many fashionistas..
