Window Treatments Part III - PATTERN



Sig Bergman - Elle Decor

Oh, how fun is this!  Patterns speak volumes when used on windows. 



 

Brunshwig and Fils

Here they establish a loud, fun vibe with a hint of ethnic flavor!

Bold zig zags....vibrant and charged with energy.

Patterns used on Roman shades look like art on the wall.

The pattern here gives relief and is such a nice foil to the solid color wrapping the room.




Barry Dixon - House Beautiful

Solid color on the drapery above would have been staid and boring.  The pattern gives movement and interest to the room.

Look how just using that wide stripe adds so much vigor to that space.

How invigorating is this pattern used on the windows?  What a great backdrop for solid color furnishings and carpet.  I feel happy just looking at it. 

If you want a little punch and life in your interiors, pattern at the windows is a great way to go!

Good morning Carla, great post. I love patterns on drapery. It sometimes makes the room. I just recently changed my drapes from a bold pattern to solid white linen. Its nice to have a change. If they weren't so expensive I would change them all the time. I have a thing for fabrics..

So funny, I happened to be in a store the other day where they had packaged up some patterned drapes. And I stopped, wishing for a moment that I had a place to put such color and movement. Love these examples!

Great collection of images, Carla! I wanted to add some striped curtains in my master bedroom in the near future. Patterned curtains easily enliven a room and create so much visual interest!

Have a lovely weekend!

I adore it, but it's just so pricey to change. :( I like change so much, it's just not a luxury I can afford!! M.
