Tips On Choosing Patterned Drapery

Incorporating patterned drapery into a room is a great way to add visual interest to a space through color and texture. Here are a few things to consider when selecting patterned fabric for your window treatments.

Size Of The Room

Take the size of the window treatment needed into consideration. A large window or row of doors can handle a large, bold fabric pattern.

Integrating Multiple Patterns

If you want to have multiple fabrics in the room you want to use related colors to tie the patterns together.

Go Bold With Color

If you love the color and pattern of a certain fabric, go ahead and commit to the color on your walls as well. The color does not have to be an exact match. The eye will see it as a repeated color if it is no more than two shades lighter or darker than the drapery.

Neutral Color Palette

A white, or off-white wall color is always a safe option and will allow your fabric options to be unlimited. Use the window treatments to be the showpiece of the room.

DESIGN TIP: Custom window treatments that use a great print fabric, banded with a solid will help highlight the details of the fabric while bringing an additional design element to the room.

DESIGN TIP: Couple a valance with drapery for an extra rich, luxurious feel. Add a tie back for extra texture.

DESIGN TIP: When in doubt, neutrals will always work. If you are not confidant in dabbling into color without an interior decorator stick with whites, off-whites, and neutral window coverings.

DESIGN TIP: Have a corner window, but can’t figure out how to dress with window treatments? One option is have a tension rod for each window, with one drapery panel on each side.

DESIGN TIP: Go ahead and embrace color. The right combination of color can make a room feel cheerful and welcoming.

DESIGN TIP: If you love a certain color but are afraid to commit, use it at an accent color in a room in the drapery or other accessories.

DESIGN TIP: Drapery does not need to contrast with a wall color. This gorgeous bedroom uses all neutral colors in the d├ęcor, while the window treatments are used to soften up the wall of windows and entry way.
