Designer Troy Beasley placed white silk draperies at the bedroom's entrance instead of over the windows to avoid blocking the stunning city view. The white draperies and bedding offer a soothing environment, while pops of yellow bring life into the space.
Designer Tracy Morris hung over-the-top, floor-to-ceiling draperies to cover up the large windows in this regal bedroom. The soothing blue color of the drapes is implemented in the ceiling treatment, bedding and furniture for a unified look. Gold accents enhance the luxurious feel of the space.
Dark, Soothing Color
Using dark colors in a bedroom can make the space feel cluttered and small when used incorrectly, but these chocolate-brown draperies set a soothing tone against the lavender walls of this contemporary bedroom. To bring some sparkle to the space, designer Joseph Pubillones hung a mirror above the bed.
Modernized Roman Shades
Designer Natalie Umbert put a new spin on the classic Roman shade. The playful pattern on the crisp white shades complements the brown-and-white striped bedding, creating a contemporary look.
Bright colors, whimsical patterns and inviting accessories make visitors feel welcome in this guest bedroom designed by Erinn Valencich. The bold-patterned, floor-to-ceiling window treatments stand out against the soft blue walls, making it the bedroom's statement piece.
Draperies don't only have to cover up windows. Designer Vanessa DeLeon hung sheer gold draperies to separate the bedroom from the living room in this studio apartment. A curtain rod spanning the room's ceiling makes it easy to open and close the curtains.
Bedroom Focal Point
The dramatic gold draperies create a focal point and spruce up the wall behind the bed. Designer Troy Beasley paired the draperies with an over-the-top velvet headboard to bring texture to the space. The two-toned drapes give the illusion of a higher ceiling, which makes the room feel larger.
Decorating your space with dual-material draperies adds interest to a neutral space. In this guest bedroom, designer Ammie Kim chose a sheer material to cover the windows to allow natural light to stream in. A bold, velvet material on the bottom of the drapes anchors the space.
