Style Comeback: Patterned Drapes

While embracing pattern in home decor has been going strong for years now, it seemed to mainly be used for upholstery (and a bit conservatively at that, such as for an "accent" chair only) or rugs. It's a big commitment to choose a pattern for drapes - they are eye catchers and can grab alot of the visual energy of the room due to their strong verticality and large volume. But they are coming back in style...

Here are few examples of interiors where the designers went for patterned drapes, done in the modern way. It's a 50s throwback no more!
