FABRICUTInterior design has always placed great emphasis on texture, pattern and structure in decorative fabrics, but, making a grand entrance in home decor this year is the use of large geometric patterns. Sophisticated windows, as well as furniture, are sporting classic, traditional designs dressed in boldly exaggerated patterns. They are modern and dramatic, presented in light, bright patterns as well as soft, pastel colors. Mixed in with textured fabrics, they are sensational!

Simple drapery designs are infused with excitement as they proudly display their large, overstated patterns. Traditional interiors are new and exciting again. No, it’s not your grandma’s idea of traditional decorating. Patterns include large damasks, Moorish patterns, stripes, flowers and vines as well as an occasional Bird.

Drapery designs run the gamut from ultra simple, well-made pairs of panels to multi-layered treatments consisting of many different fabrics and trims. Well-designed window treatments are also extremely important to the functionality of the room, providing light control and privacy. They can complement and enhance the architecture of the room and, sometimes, camouflage poor and flawed architectural details.
