Here’s why I decided to give patterned drapes a chance
Last Tuesday, I revealed our primary bedroom transformation. At that point, I still hadn’t received our new drapes. Although the room looked fine with the linen curtains, I was feeling a change and wanted to give patterned drapes a chance.
Here’s the BEFORE.
The Spoonflower drapes are subtle enough to not compete with the rug with its windowpane design. The sophisticated basketweave texture makes the drapes super high quality. I went with the 96-inch cypress cotton.
I really love them! What do you think? They state black and white but I would say the color leans more cream.
They look so great against both the white walls and wallpapered background.
If you’re scared to add pattern, try a geometric design like these drapes. The great thing about Spoonflower is that they have a really diverse selection of graphics, patterns, and designs. You can even make them into pillows, blankets, or any other textiles for your home.
If you have questions on how to install curtain rods and drapes, I have a highlights tab on my Instagram. I recommend installing curtain rods out as tall and wide as possible to make your windows appear as large as possible. It tricks your eyes into thinking the windows are larger than they really are.
I also like drapes to slightly puddle the floor. You don’t want them to be short causing them to make the window or room look short or awkward.

If you have any other specific questions, feel free to ask away in the comments section. I hope this post inspires you to give patterned drapes a chance in your own space!
Thanks for reading, friends!
