I am so glad to see double traversing drapery gaining in popularity again. There is nothing better for bedrooms. The sheer allows for filtered privacy light during the day and the blackout drapery gives you optimal sleep. In new construction, take the opportunity to hide the hardware if possible and motorize the drapery with your home automation system for added ease of operation.
Decorative tape is showing up on both drapery and furniture like crazy. Tapes have always been a nice way to punch up simple drapery designs, but this embellishment is actually trending more so than normal right now. This simple rope tape adds texture and interest to otherwise plain panels.
The fringe trend that is showing up everywhere else is also showing up on drapery. I love accenting the bottom of a drapery panel or shower curtain with a row of fringe. It dresses things up a little without seeming too ornate.
Designing spaces you love to live in,
