Drapery Trends of Today!

You may be stuck in the past!  If you find yourself in your living room overwhelmed by the knick knack decorations, surrounded by lots of prints and patterns, wicker furniture, sponge painted walls, faux florals, and more,  you may still be living in the 90s!  It’s 2024!  The age of rapid technological advances, DIY projects, and all moms are making their sourdough bread with their cute house plants to bring a smile to their faces!   Today’s home decor is vastly different then just a few decades past, but we are going to focus on the drapery trends of today.  In 2024, custom drapery design reflects a blend of innovation, sustainability, and aesthetic sophistication.
