I have a very dark living room. My furniture is dark too. Should or can I go with white curtains for more light? I have a lot of red, green, brown, and off white walls.

    I love white curtains. I have white sheers, with mini-blinds if I need to darken the room.

      I have pumpkin colored walls in my kitchen and a brown floor. I am wondering what color curtains would look the best on the french doors. I've posted a picture of the color and french doors. Thanks in advance.

          I have a small bedroom with a black and gold patterned wall paper on one side of the room, a green wall, blue floor, and black furniture. What colour curtains are best for the 2 windows to make the room warm and happy?

            Gold is a warm color, blue and green are cold colors in the room. If you desire more warm colors, then you need to change the green wall to a warm color such as a warm gray which looks good with the blue floor and black wallpaper. Add a wall mirror to create an illusion of the room appearing to be larger. Curtains can have black, gray and blue print in them or just go with light blue or gray sheers and add blue or gray curtains if you choose solids, or add sheers to the print fabric curtains.

              I have a red leather sectional. Everything else is neutral beige walls, black or espresso furniture, and dark wood floors. What color curtains should I get? I was thinking black or tan.

                    My husband and I just bought our home and we have a gray sofa-sectional, but are debating on the colors for our curtains. Eventually, we want to stain our floors darker and paint our walls a very light gray (almost white). We want to have 2 levels of curtains. I think we should have a sky/light blue curtain with white sheer curtain in the back, but my husband wants a medium to dark gray curtain with the white sheer curtain in the back. I don't know if there's a term for the sheer white curtains or not. I was also thinking of white curtains. Our living room is really small. A lot smaller than it looks in the picture. Please help. Thank you!

                      I agree with Louise about draperies the same color or a shade darker, making the room appear larger. The reason this happens is, if you have draperies near the same color as the wall, there appears to be an uninterrupted view across the entire wall, creating a sense of spaciousness.

                        I have a dark chocolate sofa and chair. The walls are beige, so is the ceiling. What color should the curtains and sheers be? I'm also going to add some decor and an art wall. Please help me.

                          beige has a tendency to make white look dingy. Gray might be okay but if you use it try to putting it in a couple of other places. you might try a brown wall in another area of the room. A lot of colors go well with brown. the curtains depend on what you want them to do. Add height or interest or contrast or just blend in. colors can be complimentary or boosting depends on what you want them to do.

                          I have tan walls, brown furniture and one blue accent wall. What color should I use for curtains? I'm thinking white because it is safe and goes with everything. Any other ideas?

                          A deeper or brighter blue might work. What color is the wall where the window is located? I would suggest keeping the curtains in the same color family as the wall, and using white for accents repeated throughout the room - pillows, large pictures, vases, throw rugs, lamps, etc. General rule is not more than three colors, but you can play with the intensity of the color - bright, shiny brown, bright blue, pale blue.

                          We have recently shifted at this place. We have a dark brown sofa set and the walls are yellow/beige colour. Please advise on the options for curtain colour and designs.

                              I had reservations about the black rod, too....And of course, you're right. Here is your burnished brass rod finished in a color to match the draperies. Two heads are better than one. Thank you.

                              I'm looking for some help to decide on a curtain colour for my front room as I'm not very good at matching things. I have magnolia walls, cream/beige carpet, and a red fabric couch. I have a big bay window and a smaller window and can't decide what colour curtains. I have been thinking of a deep olive green shade, but that's just a thought. Any ideas at all would be greatly appreciated:)
