Modern ready-made curtains for teen bedroom

Where are the modern designs? DD likes pop art, graphics, strong colours, crisp patterns.

apart from IKEA, which actually has a very thin selection at the moment, I can't find any ready-mades that are at all acceptable to her.

My usual places to look for curtains - Dunelm, Next, various on-line stores, M & S, John Lewis, Laura Ashley etc - have the safest, most traditional selection of subdued colours and non-designs. Dullsville, says DD, and I see her point.

She would like black & white, perhaps with touches of strong colour. I think more white than black, other wise it will be overpowering.

they do need to be lined, because it is a bedroom, but if necessary I could try to hang plain white liners behind, or something.

Getting them made up would be a last resort, because it costs so much.

Any suggestions please?

Have you a Range near you? I have some great ready made curtains from there, patterned and coloured. Weirdly poundstretcher is another good one for ready made curtains!

thanks, I've looked at Range online, they seem to have a very similar selection to the other stores.

I always manage to find more stuff instore than online with stuff like curtains. Could you and DD go to a couple of places in person? She might get more of an idea, and you might find something in person that didnt appeal so much online?
