In my dream house I would have drapes in the main living areas (not the bedrooms).
These blue drapes would go in my dream study, where my coral couch would be.
The gold drapery rod is pretty too.
Cream drapes would go in my bright and neutral main floor living space (living room and dining room).
I love the thick drapery rod and the tab-top style. Very grand.
In the den/man-cave/basement black drapes would work well.
The black would be great to block light and keep glare off the TV screen. Black drapes would also give a nice "movie theater" style.
