After such a great response to My Ultimate Guide to Blackout Curtains for the Nursery, I decided to follow up with more great blackout options. For this post, I wanted to show some styles with more color and pattern since the first group was mostly solids. Patterned or colorful curtains are a great way to add interest, or even to make a bold statement. They are the perfect accent piece to really tie together a look. Since nursery curtains are often one of the last elements to be chosen, you can assess anything that seems to be lacking from the design and use curtains to help fill in any gaps. Here are a few of my favorite bolder blackout curtains.
If you are really after a burst of pattern these desert floral blackout curtain panels will pack a punch. This is an interesting play on a larger scale floral that is less typical. If you are hesitant to commit to wallpaper, these would be a great alternative.
For just a touch of color, these blush ombre blackout panels are sweet and soft. The subtle gradient makes them feel more sophisticated. You can find them in lavender as well!
Designed by individual artists, Society 6 has just about every style, pattern and color of curtains imaginable. This boho minimalistic pattern really caught my eye for its bold large scale pattern.
Velvet and blush make for the perfect match. This dusty blush shade feels a lot more neutral but adds enough of a pop of color. The dual top treatment lets you choose to hang them either bunched or pleated. As with most of West Elm’s curtains, the cotton luster velvet curtain panels come in all sorts of colors—just make sure to choose the blackout option.
I used these bordered blackout curtains in navy in a modern nursery design a while back. These are grommet top, so they have a totally different look. They are also available in a bunch of other colors.
Black and white has been majorly trending for nurseries lately. If you want to incorporate that trend, but don’t want to go nuts with it, try a simple and chic minimal mudcloth blackout curtain like this one.
This basic blackout curtain panel is such a great choice to pair with your favorite sheer or semi-sheer panels. You can layer this panel under any curtain and it blocks light, absorbs noise and insulates against heat and cold.
