Make a Statement with Custom Patterned Drapes

While some fabric window treatments fade into the background (like simple sheers and neutrals), custom patterned drapes do just the opposite: They insist on being seen. Of course, because bold prints can go out of style, sometimes would-be pattern-lovers shy away from them. With the help of a professional drapery designer at Strickland’s Home, though, you can create drapes with a timeless color scheme and pattern. If you’re considering custom patterned curtains for your home, here are a few ways you can make a statement:

Add visual interest with an intricate pattern. Choose custom patterned drapes with a precise, small-print pattern to draw in attention without taking over the room. For example, these traditional paisley drapes add color without distracting from other statement pieces, like stylish artwork and furniture.

Unify simple bedroom design with matching fabrics. For a relaxing bedroom space, combine custom patterned drapes with pillows, comforters, and throws in complementary patterns and colors. A few patterns of the same style and color scheme combined with a neutral white comforter adds a touch of interest to a calming master bedroom. As you’ll see in many guest bedrooms and beach house rentals, sometimes one simple pattern provides the perfect touch.

Let your children express themselves with their own custom patterned drapes. Designing your children’s bedrooms can be tough. Why not allow them to take the lead and choose their own drapery pattern to inspire their room’s aesthetic? These zig-zag and patterned drapes grant this bedroom a fun color scheme and some privacy for children sharing their space. For tricky teens, drapes with a bold modern pattern will make you the ‘cool’ parent — at least for a little while!

Go all-out modern with lots of pattern play. Much of contemporary design features an unexpected mix of patterns that makes the eye dance across the room. If you’re in love with multiple prints, choose something eye-catching for your drapes. Think black and white stripes in a room full of bright artwork, light pink, and blue. Why not pair yellow floral drapes with a navy couch, bright flowery pillows, and a zig-zag rug? You could even make your drapes melt into the walls with matching patterned wallpaper.

Evoke traditional drapery design with classic patterns. Of course, not all patterned draperies are modern. For your traditional home, add some texture with Victorian floral drapes, go for a simple French-country style with striped drapes, or retire to the countryside with yellow plaid drapes. Sometimes, custom patterned drapes simply add some interesting texture rather than a burst of color.

Dazzle with your favorite pattern. When you’re searching through beautiful decorator fabrics, you’re liable to fall in love with one (or many!). Whether it’s a colorful floral, tropical print, or secret garden pattern, there’s nothing wrong with making your drapes the statement — and keeping the rest of the room simple and neutral.
