Patio Draperies and wall decor. Help!!!

aslater82October 24, 2012
I need help with a window treatment for the patio doors. Since they space is an open concept, I was wondering if I have to stick with the same drapery that is in the living room, or would I be able to go with something different that compliments one of the colors in the rug? Also, i need to figure out what else needs to be hung on the wall next to the patio door (if Anything). Btw I am placing the Quentin Console from Pier 1 underneath the mirror (see attached picture). I'm waiting on it to come in. Any suggestions would be helpful, Thanks

I dont' think you need to stick with the same fabric for the patio doors. Something that complements and coordinates with the elements in your living area would work. I'd be inclined to treat the patio doors and the window beside it the same. It's hard to tell, but I'm wondering if your furniture should be pulled together more -- high back chairs toward the sofa and the sofa toward the chairs with a sofa table behind it. I think something vertical on the wall beside the patio doors or a collection of things (like the piece leaning against the wall) would work.

@ lionsgate the glass pieces came from HomeGoods, a sister store to TJ Maxx/Marshalls (I've seen them there too). Thanks!

You could do a taupey beige linen curtain on the patio doors. I dont think it has to match the others but it shouldn't be too bold or it will be competing. That area in the dining room does look a little crowded though. Maybe its the chair placement? I'm not a fan of the decor in the corner by the table. Seems almost distracting. Love that mirror though!
Once you add your drapes you might not feel like the space is so large.
