Make it Bold with Monument Draperies

 Monument DraperiesMonument drapes and curtains can make a bold statement in every room; at the same time, they can add a subtle elegance that only highlights a picturesque window. However you look at it, decorating with draperies is functional and stylish and there are many options available.

Regardless of how you define Monument draperies, decorating your windows with the right color and material can make or break a room. In fact, even more minor details such as the shape, length, and style of draperies can have a significant impact. Ultimately, when decorating with drapes or curtains, you should consider these features in the bigger picture of the room. Are you looking to create a bright, breezy appearance that would be best served with a lighter, more colorful fabric? Or are you trying to create an elegant, traditional design that might best be served by heavy drapes with embroidered details? The function or purpose of the room should influence your Monument drapery decorating decisions.

Most Monument decorators will try to match some of the colors in fabrics of furniture or the carpet, or even the paint or wallpaper to the colors in the draperies. Often, we want at least one or two colors to bring a room together and your draperies are an integral component of the flow of your room. A room with dark furniture and carpets may best be served by darker colored curtains. Alternatively, flowery curtains and drapes can add a vibrant dimension to any room that will totally change the mood.

Most importantly, use your creativity when decorating with draperies. We often associated Monument drapes exclusively with windows, but there are other ways to utilize these features. For example, a four-post bed becomes even more dramatic if the posts are decorated with elegant draperies. In addition, you can create a private veranda by hanging drapes on open sides of a sundeck for a more tropical fun summer look.
