Dramatic Drapes

The longer the curtains, the more dramatic and elegant the design. In this master suite sheer loose linen drapes frame the queen size bed as well as the bay window. When trying to design a casual and more informal space, try using shorter curtains. Take the Dream Home 2009 Tour>>

Bold Colors

This brightly painted kids’ room designed for HGTV Dream Home 2011 is both colorful and lively. The rustic red walls scream high energy alongside the two-toned sliding curtains.

Enhance the Details

Drapes are not just for windows. In this formal foyer the drapes enhance the architecture while making a stylish statement. Placed alongside the architectural posts, the flowy cream curtains create a dramatic entrance, leading you from the front door into the family room and kitchen. Take the Dream Home 2009 Tour>>

Drapes Make a Decorative Divide

Curtains make great room dividers and can be adjusted to your preference. They can be pulled back with ties, pinned apart or simply allowed to hang freely. In this master suite the cream-colored curtains make the perfect divide between the bed and meditation area. Use them as a simple way to define different areas of your home.
