Colorful window treatments can also lighten the mood in a space. Here, curtains covered with pretty purple flowers bring a burst of cheer to the space.

This would make a beautiful living room to see as soon as you walk into a home. A desk floated on a cool printed rug becomes the main attraction. The rest of the space is dressed up in purple and blue, keeping if from looking office-y.

Add bold drapery. If you lean toward spaces painted in neutral hues, this graphic drapery adds just the right amount of punch to a room used for creative purposes.

Nothing about this room says "office," but look closer, and you'll see how cleverly it's arranged. The worktable, lamp and chair blend seamlessly with the refined trappings, while guests or clients can have a seat in the cushioned chair opposite. If your home is tight on space, you could take this approach in a living area also.

In transitional design, play with the scale of the pattern for a huge impact. In this room, a geometric design on the area rug is paired with an over-scale floral fabric used for the drapery. While this room feels borderline traditional, the fabric pattern and shape of the occasional chair keep it from being too serious.

3. As a starting place. Draperies often provide the initial inspiration for a room design, as was the case in this decorator’s showcase home office. While there are no prescribed rules in decorating, many designers advocate starting with one element you love, such as a flashy fabric, to serve as the attention-getting statement piece in the room, and then building off that. Here, the draperies are mounted near the ceiling, preserving the symmetry of the flat trim around the windows and creating the illusion of height.Draperies: Thomas Paul fabric, Duralee
