Patterned Drapes

I think the coolest part about using a large scale patterned fabric for curtains is that a whole other pattern emerges from all the gathers and folds...

Beautiful. Now i'm considering this for our DR. Oof, I'm so clueless about what I want to do with them...

So true. You're doing a service by pointing that out too, because sometimes people don't realize that the original pattern that they love may get a little "lost" once the fabric is made into drapes and they're disappointed. Great inspiration!

Heather said...

That dining room is terrific, and I love the more modern patterns that some of these designers have used.

These are lovely! I've been working on a custom drapery order for a client (my first time working with a workroom!) and had been looking around for photos to show her how a large-scale pattern will translate to pleated panels. These are perfect--thanks so much for posting!

so true, and what a great point! sometimes a pattern even looks BETTER when done in drapery. there have been many times i've seen fabric laid flat and it feels overwhelming, but i think it usually loses some of that impact when hung as drapes - which can be a good or bad thing depending on what you're going for!

I'm in love with all of the rooms that you have chosen. I have been smitten with the idea lately of putting drapery around my bed (canopy style). Thanks for the inspiring pics.

The example from Robyn Karp perfectly illustrates your point. Just love a pair of fabulous drapes! Janell

I love the way beautiful patterned drapes look, but I am always nervous to use them in my own home. These pics make me want to spice things up.

You couldn't be more right. When I put up the drapes in our bedroom recently, I was surprised at how the repeat in the pattern became more obvious. I liked the look but it was a surprise nonetheless. I didn't realize that would happen when I was looking at the 1' square fabric sample.

Hi Jenny! Just stumbled upon your blog, and really liked the images on your post. These drapes are beautiful and compliment the rooms so much, giving extra texture and richness to the space. Thanks for sharing :)

Sarah said...

I am in love with the fabric shown in the Domino article...do you by chance have a source?

NewMom said...

Oh, patterened drapes have been on my mind for quite a while now. Especially, large scale. I finally purchased a beautiful fabric for my open living/dining/kitchen area ( 26 yards!) and will be tackling this project soon. I want to make them all by myself, grommets and all :)
Wish me luck!

Holy cow! I love the green room with the cream and orange print floor to ceiling drapes. My house is almost to the accessorizing stage and I thank you for the inspiration. I love your blog!

Hi. Wonderful decorations. According to all tastes can find something

Brandi said...

Love it! I did an overscale damask for my dining room and it turned out beautifully! For a room with a lot of windows, thus a lot of curtains this is the way to go!

Christina said...

oooh, love the bed in the Betsy Burnham photo. It's gorgeous. Know of anything similar?

I was working for Eric Cohler and helped with the showhouse featured in the first image! His dog fabric is so much fun! Its a lot of pattern but it was so lively!
