How the Color of Your Draperies Can Transform a Room

Color plays an important role in creating a well designed room regardless of style. It can disguise problem areas or draw attention to a beautiful window view or set the mood. Color has the ability to visually make a room feel warmer or cooler, make a large room feel cozier, or a small room feel larger.

Think carefully when choosing the color of your draperies and the role they will play in the overall design of your room. If you want your window treatments to take on a supporting role, then they should match the color of the wall or be of a low contrast color. This helps them blend in with their surroundings so as not to draw too much attention. In this situation, you want your window treatment to lead the eye to the focal point or to unify the room.

If you don’t have a focal point in the room or your room lacks architectural interest, you will need window treatments in a high contrast color. In this scenario, you want to draw attention to your window coverings as they will be the main point of interest in the room.

Whatever role you assign to your window treatments, you’re sure to find just the right color, texture, and pattern with drapery panels offered on DefiningElegance.com.

Fall in love with the old world charm of Lili Alessandra draperies or the Hollywood glamour vibe of Couture Dreams draperies. You won’t be able to resist giving these collections of unique window coverings a starring role. Like an aspiring actor, some are just meant to steal the show.

Muriel Kay draperies and curtains are made with natural fabrics such as cotton/linen blends, cotton, silk, and jute, as well as faux silk. This collection has some beautifully embroidered panels for added interest and texture.

Whether you favor the traditional styling of draperies with rod pockets or soft pleats or the contemporary look of grommets, you’ll be impressed with the many attractive fabric and color options from Softline Home Furnishings.

The common thread of our desire for a beautiful home is inspiration. Shop DefiningElegance.com for elegant draperies, fine linens, artistically crafted decorative pillows, and other soft furnishings for the home and be inspired.
