You can always count on pompoms to bring a dash of boho drama to a window display. This option from Urban Outfitters is excellent for those who need total darkness to sleep. The blackout curtains keep out physical light while the bohemian touches add elements of brightness.

6. More macramé, please.
Why invest in a set of humdrum curtains when you can have macramé ones instead? This selection from Pottery Barn Teen (no, you don't need to be 13 to shop there) is handcrafted from sustainably sourced 100% cotton. The bottom features a loose fringe that gives it a free-flowing feel.

7. Make it metallic.
Prefer your sheer drapery panels with a little more pizazz? These feature a gold geometric print that's bold at the center and tapers off at both the top and bottom. This specific set offers a bit more coverage than some of the sheer, lace, and macramé options above but still lets in significantly more light than blackout curtains — perfect if you prefer sunlight to wake you up but neighbors not being able to see in.

According to Klarna, "People are adding bright jewel tones to their homes to spice up their decor for 2023," with the purchase of green curtains increasing by a whopping 104%. We love these mossy green panels from West Elm, but deep teals and aquas would be lovely too.
