Nothing brings drama to a room like gorgeous drapery panels framing the windows. While there seems to be a trend favoring simple window treatments over the last several years, some rooms simply call for a little more color, texture pattern and warmth.
Custom drapery panels are certainly an investment, so it can be hard to commit to a pattern or color. What if I get tired of it? What if it goes out of style? These are valid fears, but often keep us from going for something we really love in favor of plain neutral panels.
By being a bit of a risk-taker, you can get fabulous results. Take a look at some of the rooms below that use patterned drapery panels. Each is more swoonworthy than the next …

Take away the drapery panels in any of these rooms and they are just a little bit less lovely.
Fortunately, a client of mine was willing to be a bit of a risk-taker, and the results have been equally as fabulous. We are working on her Master Bedroom, and while it is not yet completely “reveal-worthy,” the new drapery panels that were installed last week have totally changed the feel of the room.
She was apprehensive when I first suggested this pattern for the panels …
I totally understood and also presented her with some safer, solid fabrics … but all the while secretly hoped she would agree to the pattern. To my delight (and now hers!) she decided to go for it and we are both so happy with how they turned out.
How do you feel about pattern? Are you a risk-taker? I’d love to see pictures of favorite patterns you’ve used in your home in a bold way!
P.S. Happy Valentines Day!
