Many people love patterned drapes, but figuring out the right way to incorporate them into your interior design can be tricky. You want your pattern to stand out, but you don’t want it to overpower the room.
Combine Bold with Simple
If you’re using a bold print, keep the other elements of the room simple. This allows your print to stand out, and keeps the room from feeling too busy. In this gorgeous room designed by Rebecca Stratton, the bold blue lattice print takes center stage, while the furnishings are clean and simple. The overall look is modern and bright.
Use Traditional Patterns in New Ways
If you want to keep your design feeling fresh, consider using traditional patterns in a new way. This unique window combines a geometric pattern with metal nailhead trim for a contemporary look. Don’t be afraid to do something different and embrace the beauty of contrast.
Little Touches Go a Long Way
There are lots of ways to incorporate a pattern without choosing a fully patterned drape. Small patterned accents can make a big statement in your window treatments. In the shade show above, striped fabric was seamed into a solid colored shade, a touch that elevates the style of the shade and helps draw the room together.
In this drapery, you can see how a navy stripes take a basic off-white drapes to new levels. If you’re nervous about committing to a large pattern, small touches like this can be the way to go.
