What Houzz contributors are saying:

For a dramatic scene, darken walls and layer drapery to match. Nubby whites and beiges can keep the space light while personalized pillows show attention to detail. The addition of a leather ottoman and nailheads rounds out the look and keeps it stylish.
Kerrie L. Kelly added this to 18 Ways to Make a Small Space Look Larger
1. When adding draperies to the room, keeping them in the same color as walls will help avoid contrast to the space.
You can mix and match warm and cool colors with purpose and meaning to advance your design goals and make a room more interesting. The blue walls and draperies in this living room are expanding away from the viewer and the yellow accents are advancing toward the viewer.
Shoshana Gosselin added this to Color: Dressing Up With Navy Blue
Navy blue drapes add a seductive touch from floor to ceiling. Keep the look updated by using silver grommets. This feel will be calming and creates privacy; I would use it in a library or study.
Without a doubt, velvet draperies instantly pass the cool-weather–appropriate test. They’re heavy, opaque and über cozy, especially when they come in deep colors like this rich navy. I can picture myself enjoying a hot chocolate or two in this room! More: Custom Draperies 101How to Get Your Window Treatments RightDesigner Details: Banded Drapery Panels
Some blue-and-white rooms are mostly white with a touch of blue. Others speak volumes by being mostly blue with a touch of white. The deep blue of these walls is extended via the tall blue curtains, creating a majestic jewel box of a room. A simple white sofa shines against the rich backdrop.
Using only two colors, Tracy Murdock put the ratio to good use with solid fabrics and embroidery details.
Large sash windows were common in Victorian drawing rooms. Please don't replace them with modern casement windows — only hardwood replicas will do! If you are keeping your drawing room separate, consider blending drapes with walls, as the Victorians would have done. The lack of contrasts enhances the feeling of space in a small room.
