Fabric for drapery?!
Joshua Legg
March 27, 2013 in Design Dilemma
The fabric pictured is on a chair that we just had finished but I don't know what color to do the window treatments since the room is small and the window takes up a lot of vertical space. I know I want a cornice board with a panel pulled to the right side since the mantle is so close to the other and we open the window a lot. The main concern is what color to use?!? I really want to do an emerald green and white large striped panel with a cornice board but idk if it will contrast the fabric of the chair to much. Any suggestions!!

The colors of the drapes don't have to be emerald since it will most likely not match but the only color I could see using would be the red on the chair and we hate red lol

Try to match the pale blue or go cream and be safe; or do a pale blue and cream stripe Love that fabric!

Thanks Debi! I'm normally not a fan of that shade of blue but I think it will look nice with a cream stripe. I'm trying to stay away from creams and solid bright colors because of the small size of the room and if I did cream panels then they would blend in with everything. The entire place is builder beige lol!

have you checked with the fabric mfr for coordinating fabrics. it's a very traditional look so they may have a stripe with these same colors.

I got the fabric on Clarence at hobby lobby and looked everywhere but couldn't find the mfr name. That was my original plan but having trouble with it. Might go and see if they can look it up or something.

Here is one idea in a more simple design that picks up on the green in the chair.

I believe Hobby Lobby imports their merchandise from other countries. There good at reordering items if you inquire. It may take a couple of months, but they do restock the same items after awhile…..Houzz “Digital Imaging by Tina”.

Would something like this work? The hubs also insist we have a cornice board but should it be a solid blue or blue with white trim. I don't want to many patterns
