If you are browsing our designs you will often see the use of beautiful textiles as window coverings. When we are finalizing a space we are always excited by the finishing touch of drapery. They make a space feel more luxurious and complete. The process of choosing the perfect drapes for a window comes down to a few key elements. We look at size, shape, style and overall design of the space. See below for some ideas of how we have used them in our designs and how to choose window coverings for yours.
Roman shades are an excellent choice to cover a series of windows that are close together. They also work great for smaller windows.
SIMPLE WHITE LINEN
White classic linen is one of our favorites. We love the way it allows natural light to softly filter in. In both the kitchen nook above and the living room below the white linen creates a luxurious feel. White linen is a great choice when you want to add an element of subtle sophistication.
Don’t be afraid to use a patterned drape. We love layering with patterns in a space to create more interest and dimension.
The drapery in these rooms are a tone on tone match of the rugs and pillows used in the space. Notice the neutrals in this sophisticated living room are all reflected in the mix of textiles.
DEFINE A SPACE
This is a great example of how drapes can be used to define a space. The drapery in this corner office show off the outdoor ocean views and create an intimate setting in a larger room for a desk or sitting area.
The drapery hardware is a very important element in a room. We choose from brass, iron, silver, whichever metal highlights the fabric. Usually the hardware gives the window coverings a punch, it stands out and adds to the overall beauty of the design. In this room we used a unique curved brass rod to add character and work with the round architecture of the room.
We hope you have enjoyed these examples of how we like to choose drapery and have fun as you decide which look is best for your space. See below for some of our favorite picks for drapery available right now. Have a great day!
