Creating a Contemporary Look with Drapery

We are getting so many inquiries from Customers all over the US and Canada who are transitioning their decor to contemporary.  From Palm Springs to Palm Beach, Designers and Homeowners are “updating” to classic modernism and contemporary styling.

Fortunately custom drapery may be one of the more affordable ways to transition a space quickly and dramatically.  Many Designers are turning to the classic custom sheer drapery which is extremely inexpensive relative to other fabrics, to make a modern statement within any space.  We like our classic white sheers layered behind silk or linen which really adds depth.  Choose more modern pleats with your sheers and hang them on a simple and inexpensive track system.  Or, you may even opt for grommets over a sleek stainless steel rod.

In the home below the Client wanted to create a contemporary look while keeping his dark wood accents in his floor and furniture.  We used solid silk dupioni drapery and then layered them over sheers.  Layering adds more options to open the drapes and keep the sheers closed as in the photo.  Keeping the sheers closed adds some privacy and soft lighting to the space.  We used a iron rod with simple iron rings which coordinated very well with the dark wood floors and furniture.

Hyland Contemporary Cotton Drapes

We are really loving our Hyland Collection of Contemporary Cotton Drapes.  The pattern is a very modern basket weave and the color palette is amazing.  Because this fabric is made from a cotton / poly blend it is resistant to wrinkles and is very durable.  Of course we can make these drapes in any length or width for larger, longer or wider windows.

We did a quick photo of one of the more popular colors in Hyland Straw which is really gorgeous.  The color is a very soft ivory and is very versatile.  Order samples of all of the fabrics to see the fabric in your own home.
