One of the hottest trends in drapery this year is having your curtains and shades custom made to complement each other. The bold patterns in the above design from Graham’s & Son are highly unique yet the neutral tones mean they’re understated at the same time. If you don’t want your window treatments to match perfectly, then you can have them designed to contrast as in the below design from The colours from the geometric pattern in these trendy roman shades are picked up in the two-toned block curtains.

Trend #2: Use Strong Solid Drapery Colours to Accent Your Room

You may be afraid to add colour to your rooms in case you are planning to sell in the future. However, a room that is decorated in all neutrals can be a little dull. That’s the beauty of using your drapery to bring in some wonderful and refreshing bold colours into your room. Drapery is easier to change than painting your walls or replacing your flooring, so go ahead and be daring with your colour choices. The above design by Refinery29 showcases striking solid mustard floor-to-ceiling drapery that beautifully brightens this conversation corner. Bright and bold solid curtains can also cheer up your rooms during the long, dreary winter months.

The rich deep blue in the living room featured below is a wonderful choice for drapery to add some colour to your neutral palette.  You can continue the blue theme with accent pillows and ornaments. This lovely room is courtesy of Graham’s & Son Interiors.

Grey is a hot choice for drapery this season, but instead of a dull matte grey, choose a shiny fabric that mimics metal. These shimmering soft grey silk panels above from have an understated and elegant shine. You can also go a bit darker and shinier with something like these silk taffeta drapes from in a darker, yet very rich, graphite. And don’t forget to buy them long enough to gently pool on your floor.

If you like ombre hair dyes, then you are sure to love ombre curtains! This first ombre selection from  features full-length white linen curtains that flow into a soft turquoise pool on the floor. The effect is a very soft and elegant backdrop to this lovely dining area. The stately living room highlighted below is beautifully finished off with ombre pleated curtain panels of beige and blue. The benefit of this style is that you can accent with not one but two colours! This second ombre example also comes from The beauty of ombre is how customizable it is -you can choose the amounts and colours you want.

“Let me start by saying, I love my window treatments! Mr. Graham was very professional, easy to talk to; he talked with me, not above me, I was at complete ease. He listened to my thoughts, went through my options, and just like that – decision made. The installation crew was quite professional, friendly and efficient. They were in and out in no time, with cleaning up after themselves, and ensuring that I was satisfied with what was done.
