Artwork can be placed in between drapes to fill space and create a cohesive color scheme and look in the room. While the art may initially serve as a compliment to the drapes, this will also create the appearance of a frame for the artwork.

It can also be placed to the side of drapes to emphasize the color scheme. If the drapes are blue and gold, place artwork featuring blue and gold next to or near the drapes. Sometimes curtains can blend into the room, but using artwork to compliment them will make them a statement piece.
