Top Interior Designers Offer Unique Drapery Ideas

Carefully conceived drapery creates a beautiful canvas for an interior and is one design element that greatly contributes to the ultimate look and feel of the space.  Described here are 10 rooms from several  showcase homes that portray the creative ways that top designers use drapery to accomplish a sophisticated design look.


Creative Placement –  placing the color blocked panel drapery above the window framework to draw attention up to the vaulted ceiling, increasing the sense of space. The panel drapery and roman valances frame the home’s views and continue the color palette used throughout the open living area.

Ambiance –  window sheers to bring a soft glow to the space and create a neutral backdrop for the room’s Asian-inspired elements.

Carefully Considered Detail – vacation home with simple, natural accents, choosing Hartmann & Forbes’ woven window shades and ombre drapery by Rosemary Hallgarten to add a layer of luxury without distraction.

Inspired Coloration – home created around the fabric chosen specifically for the window treatments—a subtle hand-block printed linen from Tyler Graphics featuring shades of taupe and a smoky blue ground.

Geometric Design – a masculine look in the master bedroom, perfect for the home’s bachelor owner, with graphic drapery fabric from Larsen Marlon. A boiled wool rug from Oscar Isberian and grasscloth wall covering from Phillip Jeffries add depth and comfort to the space.

Functionality Focused –  floor-to-ceiling motorized drapery to make the transition to movie viewing seamless.
