HOW TO MAKE THE MOST OF COLORBLOCK CURTAINS
Mix colors. If you want a little (or a lot) more drama or color without committing to a patterned fabric, colorblocked curtains could be the answer. A band of accent color at the bottom or side edge of a neutral drape can subtly anchor a room’s palette. For a much bolder look, broad stripes or a wide patch on top or bottom can help make a statement, while syncing perfectly with the room’s overall palette.
Mix patterns with solids. To achieve an eclectic look for your space, consider mixing patterned fabrics with solids. Our stylists recommend mixing fabrics with similar compositions (cotton with cottons, for example) and using the 60/30/10 approach: 60% solid and 30% pattern on your drapery with the last 10% coming from an accent furnishing piece such as bolster pillow or a bed runner in the patterned fabric.
Mix textures. Often forgotten amongst choosing palettes and prints, mixing textures can be an incredibly simple way to turn your interior from ‘missing something’ to a ‘must-see’. A matte linen color blocked with a reflective velvet, or a tightweave cotton paired with a loosely woven sheer…playing with textures can bring warmth, comfort, and interest to any room.
Mix layers. Whether for functional reasons or to meet the maximalist aesthetic of a room, adding layers of fabric to a window immediately brings depth and dimension to it. Using colorblocked drapes with solid roman shades behind or flanking sheer drapery with color block curtains on the sides are two highly popular layering arrangements for a chic and contemporary look.
