In the Houston living room shown here, a pair of custom velvet sofas, an extra-large coffee table, floor-to-ceiling drapes and a sizable fiddle leaf fig plant help bring down the scale.
Well-thought drapery creates an exquisite backdrop for an interior and is one design element that greatly contributes to the final look and feel of the space. Here, we’ve selected 10 rooms from some of our favorite homes that showcase the creative ways that top designers use drapery to accomplish a high-design look.
To allow the living room in this new Carpinteria, California, home to double as a media room, design firm Lafia/Arvin, A Design Corporation, chose floor-to-ceiling motorized drapery to make the transition to movie viewing seamless.
When space is at a premium, you’ll do anything you can to squeeze out the most inches. A corner sink with a black lacquer vanity in this California powder room saves valuable floor space. The split mirror is a particularly nice touch.
