Chevrons: strong and graphic, you can’t go wrong with a bold chevron pattern
Graphic floral: not your grannies floral, think young and fresh
Moroccan: similar to chevrons but with more curves and less bold
Solids: a solid can be the best pattern, especially if the fabric you choose has a bit of texture to it
Deep and Dark Blues
Light and Sage greens
If you stick with the colors and patterns listed above when choosing fabric for your draperies, you are sure to love the end result.
Some patterns that you may want to steer clear of if you are going for a more modern style are usually the really busy patterns. These can include small floral prints and even smaller plaid prints. A good rule of thumb is to ask yourself, “Would my grandma have this in her house?” If the answer is yes, or even maybe, keep searching.
