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.

Your windows look lovely as they are. But, if you want to cover them, lace would be pretty.

Yes. It is called "white on white." Add another shade or shades of white and you have a beautiful room!

Question: Curtain Color Advice

Floor and wainscoating.I have dark reddish brown hardwood floors and dark beige walls in the living room. My couches are black, but we might change them soon. We wanted red curtains, but it made the room really dark. We prefer colored curtains rather than neutral. What shade would you recommend? Will lime green or yellow look good? Windows.

I think picking a color curtain that matches or blends in with your wall color allows the eye to see a beautiful open airy look. I would also add a white and tan or white and brown leaf design sheer to go behind it. This way the light will come through the sheer leaf design adding light.

The side curtain panels will blend in with the walls and will look nice with your floors. It will also look great with your sheers. Bringing nature into the home is always soothing to everyone's spirit. In addition, the white and tan or white and brown leaf design coordinates with the wood floors. Adding accent colors such as a cream colored sofa with cream, tan pillows, yellow, or green sofa pillows would look very nice. Displaying green plants everywhere adds light and ties everything in. Using 3 colors such as brown, cream, tan and then adding pops of color in green and or even yellow is great.

Question: Curtain and Rug Colour Advice

My living room wall paint is green and orange. What colour can I use for the rug and curtains?

By Grace

By jm.interiorplace12/04/2013

Hi Grace, you have two options here. If you have green and orange on the wall, you can use either complimentary colors for the accessories (curtains) or you can use triad colors. These options are found using a basic color wheel, like the one below. To use complimentary colors you will select from the colors alongside green and orange. You will see this includes lighter shades of the green and orange already on the wall, or you can also select yellow, which is the color between green and orange. But what I recommend for you is to go with the triad approach. This method lets you break the wheel into 3 parts and each part is represented in the room. I recommend this approach because you already have two parts of the triangle represented in the room. The third color will be violet and I think that will really set things off nicely for you. Hope this helps!

Photo of bed and windows behind it.I just painted my bedroom walls Benjamin Moore Nimbus Gray, which is really blue.

From your photo, it seems that you have white blinds for privacy. I like that look just as it is. However, if you want curtains as well, I would go with white sheers. I think with the dark walls, and the bright colours on the bed, you do not want to add another dark colour nor any kind of pattern. I think that would be overdone. I think the room looks very nice just the way it is.

This is a pretty neutral pallet. You can go with just about any color you like. I agree that blue would look nice, but shades of green, or a floral print curtain and then pick up the color with solid cushions, say pinks and yellows. Really, you can go with just about anything.

Another way to go, if you have a lot of colorful accessories - paintings, photos, vases of flowers,mosaic topped tables, etc. you could go with a light airy beige or cream curtain, similar for the cushions, and let the accessories in the room provide the color punch.

You have such a neutral pallet with tan and brown, go for something really bright. What's your favorite...red, green, orange? I would use turquoise for a cool room or red for a warm room. Buy some toss pillows, candles, etc. in the same color and the whole room is coordinated. Sounds like a beautiful room. Have fun!

      This is a very neutral pallet. You could use just about anything with those colors. Pick a print or pattern that is in a color you like - blue, pink, green, golds - whatever, and that incorporates the tans that you have, and use the colors for drapes, or on throw pillows, and use solid drapes in the accent color.

      Another way to go, if you like to have lots of artwork on your walls (not just one or two pictures, but lots -I have twelve paintings in my living room), is to use another neutral on the drapes, and then just showcase your artwork and knick knacks for the color. I have white sheer drapes.

      Question: Curtain Color Advice

      My husband and I just bought a house. I'm not much of a decorator and so something as simple as picking out curtains freaks me out. The living room walls are a pale yellow, we took up the carpet to show the hardwood flooring, and all the trim throughout the house is white. We have no furniture in there as of yet but my husband wants curtains for our bay window asap.

      If anyone has any suggestions for curtain colors I would appreciate it. :) Also, our kitchen is very small and connected to the living room - it is a really pretty blue color, cabinets will be painted white very soon. We have three small kitchen windows and I want to get black and white window valances. Should the black and white valances tie in with my bay window curtains in the living room?

      If you plan to use draperies, I would go with white draperies and yellow sheers. I'm not a decorator, so you will probably get better advice.

Throw pillows, etc. are turquoise, brown, green -- all tropical decor. I live in FL.

        I have a lot of earth tones in my house. Many rooms are painted with Benjamin Moore's historical colors. You may want to look on their website and try different colors in the sample rooms you can "paint" online. You can see what colors look good with your existing furniture, wall, trim, and rug colors by painting the room those colors and adding different ones. Good luck!

          Personally, I'd go with white or off-white curtains. I have had sheer nubbed material sheer drapes for years, and I love them. There are mini-blinds behind the drapes to darken the room if needed. In my previous house I had white room darkening drapes with white sheers for privacy. I do not like a valance in a living room as I think it makes a room look smaller. You might also use drapes the same shade or very slightly darker than your paint colour. Both choices will make the room look bigger. If you go for a bolder design or a much darker colour, it will make the room look smaller.

            Go bold to complete your look. Bright golden yellow or orange. Or depending on the size of the windows you could put a sheer one in the middle-white or yellow & orange on each side & tie back with silk braided rope or fringed braided rope. This will brighten it up! Good luck & have fun.

              I think white would look great. Or, you could go with a shade of pink that matches either of the walls, or is lighter or darker. If you like prints - geometric or flowers, a print in shades of pink and white, and perhaps some other colours (say yellow and green, if you went for a flowered print), might be nice.

              Question: Bathroom Curtain Color Advice

              bathroom window with valance

              I am making a new curtain for our bathroom window. The walls are white, the window and grids are white, and the window trim is stained walnut. We have blue and light green towels and the shower curtain is shades of blue and blue/green in thin subtle stripes. I had a white tie-up curtain, but that was just too much white in the bathroom. I tried one that was supposed to be taupe, but it's too dark and blocks the light. So now I am going to make my own. I think it should probably coordinate with the shower curtain.

              The curtain only needs to cover the top half of the window since the bottom half is frosted and I'd like it to allow as much light through as possible which is why I went with a white curtain originally. It's also high enough off of the ground that no one would see in so I just need the allusion of privacy. So what type of fabric, color, pattern/solid would you recommend?

                Could you use a lace curtain? If not, go with a light colour of blue or green, or a print that matches the colours of your shower curtain and towels. I would not use the same material unless you love it. It might be too "matchy, matchy". Could you use a sheer material for the curtains? That would let in light, and provide the illusion of privacy.

                  The light shade on your walls I don't think would compliment well with pure white curtains regardless of textured fabric unless you have other colors in it that would merge such as a bit or orange, rust,yellow, etc. in the fabric. But that is just my opinion or preference. You didn't state what color flooring and furniture you have for that area and if you have more artificial or natural light in the room. Don't go over three colors or the room will look too busy. There are other colors that would look good with your walls too, such as blue, green, cream combination.

                  I would go with either white or solid pink - either light or dark, or a pink and white print. If you want room darkening curtains, be sure you have solid ones that are lined. Alternately, you could put mini blinds in the window to darken the room, and then lace or sheer curtains to keep the light airy effect of the lacy patterns in the room.

                  With brown and black, I would use blue, not a bold blue, but just enough to where you can see the lighter blues. That would look lovely with browns and black. think red would be nice as well, just make sure you have lighter colors to compliment. Then again a lot of homeowners might walk in there and not like darker colors. That is why I would stay with neutrals, using the blue would be a safe bet. My bedroom is light blue and brown. I have pictures, candles, etc that compliment the room and I just love it.

                  I think the room colour looks fine. If you are okay with it and it is in good shape, leave it. I would put a sheer white or white lace curtain on the window, since you already have blinds to keep out the light. Or, perhaps, white silk or white cotton, depending on the look you are going for - sophisticated or country or whatever. Alternately, choose your comforter, and then get matching drapes and throw rug based on the comforter's colours. Places like Sears do up sets of comforters, pillows, & drapes so you can go with the matching look. The only problem with that is that I find that I tire of the comforter, or it wears out far sooner than the drapes.

                  I don't think that painting the wall white is going to improve the colour matching of the curtains, especially if they are cream. I think the red curtain overpowers the room, and the cream doesn't go with the grey as well as another colour might. I would switch out the drapes to something less bold - maybe a silver grey drape, or a black/white/grey print.

                  If you want to add some colour, go with a colour in a print in your curtain - say red/white/black/grey, and then some cushions in the same material, or red, white, and grey cushions. My personal preference would be a grey that either matches the feature wall, or matches the main wall colour. I think drapes should be a backdrop in a room, not yell "look at me, look at me!".

                  Personally, I like the curtains that you have. In my opinion, curtains should be a backdrop rather than an eyecatcher in a room. I would hang more art rather than change the drapes.

                  I agree. If you are keeping the comforter, do not add any colours. Use white or tan or blue drapes, or some combo of those in a print. If you plan to change the bedcovering, yellow or green drapes would be fine, but you would want to have the bedcovering to match the drapes, or to be white or tan.

                  You are very lucky with the camel color! Options are endless! From color to fabrics you can go with anything. I would start with a favorite color cause this is something you will be looking at for a bit and you may as well get a favorite color.

                  I would go with a print, stripe or flower with just a touch of the plum color in it to bring it all together. Maybe you could buy an extra panel and cover some accent pillows in the same fabric. If that does not appeal to you and you prefer a more modern look (don't know what style furniture you have) then I would go with plain white.

                  Solid burgundy or a grey/burgundy pattern - geometric or floral, whatever you might find that you like. There might be another coordinating colour, for example, if you picked a floral, there might be green in there for foliage. Or maybe a grey drape, with matching throw pillows on the sofa of the same material.

                  This is such a neutral pallet that any colour that you desire will work. Pick a favorite, and just go with it. Red will be very vibrant; greens will give a bit of a woodsy, plant type feel; blue,especially a softer shade, will be restful and cool; yellow will be sunny and cheerful. You could go with a pattern or design, if you have a theme that you like.

                  The woodwork looks to be a cherry wood color, so I think a combo of the red accents you have along with the off white furniture/walls that a reddish brown would look appealing for the carpet and drapes/curtains with accent of off white. Also, for the curtains, you could use off white and accent it with red and reddish brown stripes.

                  Here's a link you can play around with on choosing paint colors for a room. This particular one has off white furniture for starters. This is from under the heading "Painting ideas" You can choose different rooms, color combos unfortunately no flooring colors or curtains, but it can prove helpful to you just by seeing colors next to each other. Remember to consider how much natural lighting you have and the size of the room.

                  If you like flowers, go with flowers. Or perhaps something of a geometric pattern. You might go with a yellow/blue/white pattern of some sort. Another way to go might be white lace or sheers, if you want to lighten things somewhat. Yellow, beige, white, or shades of blue are all good colours. You could easily change the table cloth as well, if you wanted to go with a cheery lemon yellow, for instance.

                  With such a neutral pallet, you can put just about any color you wish. Personally, I hang many, many pictures on my walls, so I like white sheer drapes with blinds behind for light blocking in the summer. However, most people might want a little more color in the room You can suit yourself. Blues and greens will give a softer, cooler look. Red, oranges and yellows will warm the room up. Greys or browns are also very neutral, if you like that sort of pallet. Look through magazines to search for ideas.

                  You can go with the complementary color selection as they looks classic. It looks too great to use solid-colored curtains with solid-colored walls. The several shades that you can use in your curtain can be shades of yellows, red, blue and grey. If your selection is blue it will be good to go.

Don't forget toss pillows since everything is solid color some nice prints would work well. Try TJ Maxx, Marshalls, Target, K-Mart. Try the curtains straight down and try tying them back with string.

This can be a blue or green, or even white. But if you are trying to change the mood of the room, you will have to paint or wallpaper the walls in a new color scheme because orange and yellow leave you only a few options.

I would like more color in this room, but I have no idea what color curtains would go with a brown couch and burgundy rug.

                  Trim the cream curtains with gold braid. Add some gold colored items as lamps, trim on lamp shades (use some of the gold braid), vases, and such. The use of pillows could also add more color, but stay with lighter shades of the colors already there. This could be a very attractive room with the lighter accents.

                          I would go with white or a very pale grey, perhaps sheer, or antique silk, depending on whether you want them to be light blocking or not. Since everything so neutral, I expect you do not want to go with any bold colours. You might go with a grey, black, and white bold pattern, and then accessorize with throws and pillows in similar prints, or solid black and white.

                              It's your chance to discover your own style!
                              Here's a hint to go inexpensively but still stylishly...check out sheet sets (either new or at your local thrift stores!)
                              They come with a sewn in pocket that you can just slip onto a curtain rod and you can reuse them as sheets later on! They come in great colors and patterns too! If you get a new set you can use the pillow cases to cover a pillow or two for your couch.
                              You can change the whole look of a room with an easy sheet change. They are easily cleaned too!
                              Once you find a sheet color you like, use one or two of your favorite colors in the pattern to accent the room!
                              Remember browns, greens and blues are calming, reds, yellow and orange are vibrant and stimulating. YOU decide what mood you want your room!

                                  Use the color you are going to cover the chair in. Or a lighter color in the burgundy palette. You might consider pillows that would be in the same shade as the swag. Stay away from the "neutral" colors unless you don't want the swag to be a statement. If it's merely to hide the blinds, make it same color as the walls.

                                  Question: Curtain Color Advice

                                  Most of my living room is currently black and brown. I've got a black leather and brown microfiber couch, black end tables and such, and a black entertainment stand. I've got a dark brown/reddish brown brick fireplace with a black screen. The carpet is a light tan. The walls are plain white. I rent so painting isn't really an option.

                                  I am looking to add some color to the room and replacing the, currently brown, curtains seems to be the easiest and cheapest way to go about doing it. I will hopefully be adding other splashes throughout as I go also, once I decide on a color. I'm just not sure which color(s) would provide the needed color without overwhelming the room or making it feel lopsided.

                                  It's a large window (approx. 8ft) just a few feet from the front door that takes up the majority of the one wall. It's also the only window in the room. So too much or too strong of a color seems like it could easily off set the room's balance.

                                  What color(s) do you think would work the best to successfully "wake up" the living room without washing it out and/or overwhelming it? Other than the curtains, how else would you suggest integrating that/those color(s) to help keep the balance?

                                    If I were you, I would go with white sheers or white sheers and white antique silk drapes. I would choose several paintings of things that I liked and perhaps colourful throw or two and matching cushions to add colour. However, others who are more daring with curtain colour might add a patterned curtain with coloured miniblinds in a shade of rust or deep red. I have seen that on a commercial on TV. I like white because I think it makes a room look brighter and bigger, and I do not like patterned drapes. I see there are places that will come to the house, take a picture, and then show you pictures of your house with a variety of drapery options. Perhaps you could find something like that, or maybe even find someplace like that online.

                                        Blue would look nice but I don't think I would go with too dark of a blue (sapphire, navy). Maybe stay with a sky blue or maybe teal/turquoise?

                                        What color is your furniture? If it's darker (darker brown, black) I'd say go more with the brighter/bolder (teal/turquoise). If it's a lighter color (light brown, beige, white) then maybe stick with the light blue?

                                        I think a burgundy or goldish colors might work too, again, depending on the furniture colors that you've got to work with.

                                        Your room is very neutral, and your furniture pieces are as well. If you want to change out the paint, that would likely be the easiest way to brighten up the room I also think you should get a painting that you really love. Paintings are not supposed to "go with" a room; you should choose paintings based on the fact that you love to look at them. And a real painting is almost always better than some print picked up at Wal-Mart. That being said, the painting should not look garish and weird, but usually people choose paintings that fit in with their world. You might brighten up the couch that you don't like with colourful throw pillows and a comfy throw. The colour choice is up to you, because we don't know what you would like.

You could also match them with sofa in a solid colour, but that is a dark colour and would tend to cosy up the room, which may be what you like.

                                        I liked the blue carpet and was going to suggest the curtains be the same shade. You could do the same with the ivory carpet. The apartment is small, so I think that curtains the same colour as the walls (or light ivory like the new carpet) will make the room look bigger by providing a uniform backdrop for your furniture.

                                        I have cream color walls with a lot of oak wood accents, chair rail, crown molding, wood strips in the corners. The rug is beige. I have black furniture and cherry wood tables. There is also a multicolor fireplace in earth tones. What color drapes would go with all of this? Thanks.

                                        Not having a picture to go by, I can only imagine, but I would say that any earth tone would probably work just fine. Brown or tan or beige (matching the walls is always okay), or if you want more color or contrast, go with some muted green (a sage or greyish green might be great) or even a burgundy (echoing the cherry tone of your existing furniture). You could pick up paint chips and match one of the colors in the fireplace, that would also work well.

                                        If you want to be particularly bold, you could go with black, as you have black furniture, and black seems to go with pretty much anything. I hope this helps.

                                        We have tan furniture and beige carpet. I just bought walnut colored blinds for 2 very big windows in our family room. I'd like to put valances at the top of the blinds. I saw some very cute country brown plaid ones, but I'm worried it's too much brown on brown. What color or colors do you think I should go with for the valances?

                                        You can use just about any colour you like, except grey. With white walls and leather furniture, you have a totally neutral pallet. Choose a plain or patterned curtain. The colour of the flooring or carpet might make a difference. You didn't say what kind you had.

My couches are a darker gray, the hardwood floor is brown, and my tables are a deep brown. The window and baseboard trim is white. I'm looking to use teal and purple or teal and yellow as colours. Should I make the curtains teal and do white and purple pillows, or white curtains and teal and purple pillows?

                                        I'm sorry, I can't get my head around teal and purple as a colour combo. It seems like an unusual combo. Do you have a print in mind with those colours? However, of the choices you gave, I would choose the white curtains, and then the pillows could be your shot of contrasting colour. I would suggest a print with softer versions of teal/purple, with grey and white, perhaps.

                                        Pink to match the walls or lighter, or purple to match the bedspread, or, if you wanted to soften the look, go with white curtains, or white with a pink print (say flowers). It strikes me that you do not want to soften the look, but you do not want to add another colour; keep the room in the pink/purple monochromatic look.

                                        You have a very neutral pallet, and could go with just about anything. If you want to make the room look bigger, choose a pale shade of brown/tan, or even linen to match the walls, and go with floor to ceiling drapes.

                                        If you are looking for a splash of colour, you could go with patterns that have an accent colour - soft blue, soft orange, or greens with some of the browns that you have in other areas of the room. You might then add an accent chair or cushions on the sofa in your accent colour. I prefer a very neutral background, so I would go with linen coloured drapes, myself.

                                        I'm not sure what you are describing - are the adjacent rooms done in blue? Do you like blue? Use blue shades or patterns if you do. I always like a white or cream drape. I think it makes the room look bigger, is more serene, and then doesn't take away from the pictures or other wall decoration. You also have a free hand the choice of furniture colours then too.

                                        Personally, I am a big fan of white sheers, a nice satin drape, or lace curtains over blinds (because you want it dark sometimes, and you don't want the neighbours to be able to see in!). However, you could go with shades of blue, either solids or with a pattern, or creams, or maybe a silvery grey that has a nice sheen to it and matches the rug not exactly, but in tone. Some greys are brownish, and you wouldn't want to match a bluish grey with a brownish grey rug, for example. I would stick with those colours.

                                        Since everything else is neutral, I would pick curtains that pop. Maybe a rich contrasting color or an interesting pattern that ties in the shades of brown in the room. If you are buying curtains, get some you like and try them out. You can always return them if you don't like them. If you are making them yourself, get a small swatch of the fabric to take home and try against the walls and furniture to see if you like it before committing to buying yards and yards of fabric. If you have pets, I can tell you that darker curtains will hide fur and marks from them peeking between the curtains better than light curtains.

                                        Also think about curtain weight. If your window gets direct sunlight, you may want heavier, darker curtains to block the sunlight in the summer. If your living room window is in an area that is shaded, you may want lighter more airy curtains that will let some light in.

                                        Plaid or large print floral fabric with dark green/tan/brown/cream that compliment your interior would look nice and would add a little pop to the solid furniture fabric and carpet. If you can sew your own curtains/drapes, you could get enough fabric to make covers for toss pillows on sofa too.

                                        Any colour of curtain can be used in an off-white room. What colour is the sofa? The carpet or other flooring? If everything is off white, you might consider a patterned black and white drape. Or, what I have, are white sheer drapes with mini blinds underneath to darken the room when needed. Now I am free to cover the walls with lots and lots of framed artwork; I do not "match" artwork with anything; I choose pieces that I love.

                                        I think I would use white drapes or sheers, but then I am partial to a very neutral background. If you like patterns, you might choose a material that has the grey (or a lighter shade) from the sofa, as a background, maybe with white, and then orange to match the chairs. Say something with orange and yellow flowers on a grey and white background.

                                        These are pretty vibrant colours, and without seeing them, it is hard to visualize. I would introduce some neutrals into the mix - perhaps an off white, or cream, or light tan. What colour flooring do you have? And what about furniture? That would make a difference.

                                        Yes. It will give it a custom, or professionally decorated look! Some I have seen have done this by color blocking horizontally, taking 2 different colored curtains, cutting one in two at the lower end of the curtain, then inserting the other color cut to whatever length you desire and putting the bottom piece from the original curtain cut on the bottom. I hope this helps!

                                        This is a neutral pallet. If you like bolder colours, you can certainly go with something that you might like-- a bold print or pattern in browns & oranges, or tan and blues or burgandy and tans and browns. Or, if you like a calm feeling, you could go for white curtains. I always think that curtains that match the wall colour make the room look bigger, and serve as a backdrop for the furniture and paintings. Another way to go would be a softer colour, such as tan or light brown, that matches the sofa, and then use matching pillows or throws to bring that colour into the room.

                                        That is a very striking colour on your walls, so I would go with white or off white curtains - either in a sheer or light blocking, whatever you think you need. However, I am one who likes a very serene backdrop to the furniture. I might try to get some throw pillows with a green and white pattern, just to tie the room together.

                                        I think your main colour pallet is so neutral that either of your curtains that you have should work, if you like those colours. Of course, you don't want both sets up - that wouldn't work. However, based on your description, either pattern should work. Perhaps some cushions with the main colour from the curtain would look nice, just to bring some of the accent colour into the room.

                                        Hang the curtains, and see if you like the look of the room. Maybe invite a friend for coffee, whose taste you like, and see what she says. I think either set would work. You don't have to have blue with brown -- it is just a colour that many, many people like.

                                        I'm no decorator, so I can't give you a proper answer. Your tan (creamy gold) walls are a bit dark. They might look more appropriate if there were articles about the room in the same color family, only lighter and brighter, more near a true gold.

                                        Also, I think the white of that nice fireplace should be carried out further into the room. Have you considered a white, patterned area rug under that table, or maybe one near the color of the tile around the fireplace? At the very least, I would donate the sea foam throw pillow and replace it with one of gold damask or white with gold tassels.

                                        Another thought... maybe less on the mantle and a wall hanging in a gold leaf frame on either side of the fireplace. (Do play up the fireplace. It's the best thing this room has going for it).

                                        Peach, coral, banana cream are colors that sit well with rust or go with a cool color of a soft pastel shade. You could also go to a fabric store or online and look at bolts of fabrics that has rust and other colors in it to help you decide, if you really don't like the colors mentioned.

                                        These are pretty neutral colours. Pretty much anything you like would look fine. You might look for a pattern with a colour you like, say blue, and the grey and brown from the other places, maybe some black for an accent. Get accent pillows to match the curtains, or perhaps a nice throw.

                                        I made a huge mistake, but it;s kinda growing on me. LOL I purchased black wall to wall carpeting in our 1440 sq. foot home and now I need to replace our curtains in the living room, sorry but, no I do not want mini blinds. I bought a cream colored sofa and love seat to try and lighten up the room a little bit, but I am in a quandary about the color of the drapes. I was thinking about changing the wall color to a light gray. Any advice on curtain color would be greatly appreciated. Thank you and God bless.

                                        Since you bought cream furniture with black carpet, I'd paint the walls the same color cream and then on the walls hang any picture frames, mirrors, or floral arrangements using black, cream and a color that is bold and colorful like red, blue, turquoise, lemon yellow, orange, lime. This will make things come together and include the three chosen colors into the window fabric. If you use solid color panels, you can sew colors of rickrack on the bottom to pull it off too. OR, go to a fabric shop and look for material that has black/cream in it and merged with other colors to get ideas for glimpse of colors together with shades you like best.

                                        You home does sound quite dark. I agree that either off white or white curtains would likely work quite nicely. You might think to add some pillows in colours that match the curtains as well. I like sheer drapes, but also a shiny satin/silk fabric that reflects light might also work.

                                        This would be a little easier if there were photos. But I can still help you a bit I think. I'm uploading a color wheel. These are useful because they show how colors relate to one another. If you want something to go with the colors you mentioned, pick something right next to either color in the wheel. If you want something to accent your color scheme, pick a color opposite the curtain or furniture color in the wheel. For example, red will be a good accent to green (opposites in the wheel), but light blue will be a good match for green.

                                        So the furniture is burgundy paisley and the walls are darker orange and yellow. All of the orange/yellow/red colors will go with the scheme you have now. Different shades of blue will work as accents. Personally I think you should stick with the color scheme you have and go for something in a darker red. I'm attaching a link to a wallpaper I think is the right color. Good luck!

Hang the valance over them if it is long enough to reach from 1 curtain panel to the other. The sheers may be drawn over the window if wide enough. Hope this helps.

                                        I would go with white. This color combination has enough dark and light colors, and white will help show the light through the windows. You can also go with this idea. I like going to walmart and getting 5' wide plastic sheeting. You can get it from clear to floral, and you cannot see through it. Cut it the size of the windows, and gently hot glue it to the corners and the sides, or tape it to the frame. You have light, privacy and can set things in the window sills.

                                        Since these are basically white, I think you could go with any color that you like. I have off white walls, and white sheer drapes on the window wall. I like the look as they let in the light (I have blinds if I wish to darken the room), and they make the room look bigger. You might consider that style. However, bear in mind that it is a very neutral pallet. I have many, many pieces of colorful art that I showcase on that blank canvas.

                                        This is a very neutral pallet, and you could likely use any color or design that you like. Why don't you go to a department store or bedding shop where they sell sets, and pick out something that you like. I would suggest something in shades of blue and brown, because I have seen patterns in that color that I like. Many of these sets have curtains to match. If the set that you like doesn't, pick curtains that match one of the colors in the pattern. However, just about any color would do. Greens, shades of white and cream if you like a neutral pallet, burgundy, pink. You might find a solid that you like as well. If you pick a particularly striking bedding set, you might want to match the drape color to the wall color - either the same shade or lighter; this will make the room look larger, and put the focus on the bed.

                                        Just about anything at all will go with that sofa, so I would find something that goes nicely with your yellow walls. I, personally, am a big fan of white/off white, so I would use sheers of whichever color you prefer. If you want patterned curtains, I'd go with a yellow that goes with your yellow walls that has some sort of chocolate brown pattern. If you want a solid color, I'd go with chocolate brown. These are not colors that are hard to match, though, so if you want something with another color, you might try finding a print with the yellow, chocolate brown, maybe a white background, and then sage green or blue. If you find a print that has the yellow and brown that go with your walls and any other color that seems nice in the print, you are likely good to go.

                                        Hi Sam, it depends on the shade of brown furniture and on other colors in the room, such as floor, rugs and walls. But in general, you can add to your existing decor by choosing another neutral color for your curtains. A dark green, for example, will give a nice warm look. If there are a lot of dark colors in the room already, try a bright color, like yellow or blue. Good luck!

                                        With those colors you could go with a darker blue and lace in between. You can never go wrong with white lace so perhaps that first and if you wanted more blue, a darker valance? I hope that helps.

                                        Definitely a neutral with all the colour you already have in there. A stark white in a simple style (side falls with a swag) will suit beautifully, for example, if you have a very contemporary furniture style - it will 'frame and finish' the look and feel of the room. Dramatic and very handsome.

                                        Cream or ivory in either a country (cafe tiers, Pricilla type ruffles and padded pelmet or ruffled swag), or more formal styling (pinch pleats, bishops sleeve falls, tiebacks, and swagged valance) to suit a more traditional style.

                                        Because you already have a lot going on in there colour wise you really don't need to add any via the curtains.

                                        Also, you need the style of the curtains to match the style of the furniture or the viewer's eyeballs will twist right out of their heads trying to take in all the colour and styles going on.

                                        Tan would bring them all together, with perhaps a plaid with tan and brown and black for a valance or tie backs. Your room needs to brighten up some.

                                        Maybe even some lace in between on a double rod?

                                        Definitely neutral colours like beige, cream, or very-very-very pale brown. If you (or she) sew, you can piece in the darker colours of the room (the orange and the browns) as narrow stripes, piping, or other accent effects either at the hem or valance, or lengthwise in the panels to add a bit of a splash of colour whilst adding the illusion of height), but main effect should be a neutral as should be any tie backs she wants.

                                        As for style, it depends on the style of her furniture - formal or traditional furniture calls for floor length pinch pleated draperies with elaborate swag or bishops sleeve valances and down panels with very formal style rods (usually with pulley style opening and closing hardware), and formal tie back hardware (finials, sculpted metal tie back hardware, etc) while more casual furniture allows for cafe, tab top, simple casings, country style priscillas, etc, on simple rods including tension rods that fit tightly inside the casement (frequently used on french doors, it's a wonderful look).

                                        Very rustic or 'primitive' style furniture calls for curtain rods in the same style as the furniture, for example twig or branch rods.

                                        Hello Diane,
                                        I don't understand the "welfare white beige," but I will assume you are referring to white and beige. If your chairs are dark in color you are close to a very good color scheme already. Dark accents in the furniture are popular among earthier tones on the walls and ceiling.

                                        I would suggest some bright white wherever you can, either by painting the trim of the room or by introducing some accents such as a standing vase or a planter with a nice house plant. Good luck. And if you are unhappy with the color of the walls, paint them. It is easy and cheap and always brightens the room.

                                        Light pink and a soft gray would work nicely. I googled pink and gray rooms and came up with a lot of nice samples.

                                        See if you agree and if so, visit your local paint store with some samples of colors you like. Most of the big box stores now have a computer that allows you to change the colors of the wall in digital form. You can see what things will look like before you guy. Good luck!

                                        Which wall needs the drapes? I would go with the cream if I were you. Or match in a lighter shade the color of the walls the drapes are on.

                                        Green sheers with brown drapes would work, but you really need a touch of something else. It would be tricky, but certain oranges might work as would gold, yellow - something in that family. You don't give the wall color so I am presuming off-white.

                                        Window coverings to match the walls would make the rooms appear more spacious and then use the same or near color for sofa pillows, chair cushions to tie it all together. A striped material of green, brown, and something would also do the trick. I have such of green, brown, ivory, and red in a room paneled in knotty pine.

                                        I would suggest cream to match the walls or perhaps cream with a small burgundy print if you want to make the room look larger and not draw attention to the window. Have pillows of the same material to pull the whole look together. These colors sound so lovely and inviting together. I wish you had sent a picture. A touch of aqua as in pillows or such would work, but not for the windows. Use a burgundy if you want to accent the windows or a cream and burgundy stripe.

                                              We just moved into our new home and it is a rental so we can not change the color. All of the walls in the living room, kitchen, bed rooms, and bath rooms are a goldish yellow. (I hate that they are all the same!) I was needing some help with curtain/decorating color ideas.

                                              Thanks.

I'm thinking of doing the same in the living room but kinda vice versa. Instead of black and white curtains, I could do cream color curtains for a clean look and maybe a black and white area rug (speaking of which can I do an area rug on top of wall to wall carpet?), accented with red pieces i.e. candles, etc.

My walls are white and soft aqua (aqua on top)' and I have ashy red bricks in my fireplace. I'm stumped as to what curtains to get. I'm not sure if I should go solid or patterned. I'm not a bold person (the aqua was somewhat out of character). The colour wheel would suggest that I go with an orange? I can't see doing that. Right now my curtains are just a cream, but it's kind of boring and doesn't look very grounded.

                                              Question: Curtain Color Advice

                                              My boyfriend and I decided to remodel our apartment. We installed a tannish colored carpet. Our one wall is tomato red and the accent wall is tuxedo black. The wall behind the TV (across from the black wall and where the curtains go up is set up with brick wallpaper (not brick red, but more matching the carpet).

                                              The couch is ivory like a creamish color. We are having a hard time deciding what color curtains to put up. Any ideas? The couch is a sectional, half of which is in front of the tomato red wall and the other half in front of the black wall. Our TV, Playstation, and Bose system are all black.

                                              We just finished painting our nursery, and are completely stuck on what color curtains to buy. The top half of the walls are light blue, with a teal chair rail. The bottom are orange/white striped (12 inches thick). The furniture is espresso colored. The baseboards, doors, and windowsills are white. We tried blue curtains, but they looked to dull. We threw around the idea of white curtains, but are unsure of it matching the furniture.

                                              Question: Curtain Color Advice

                                              My living room and kitchen are one room, so here are the colors:

                                              • walls: light lilac with 1 medium/dark purple accent wall
                                              • floor: beige tiles
                                              • sofa: white
                                              • kitchen cabinets and dining table: cherry wood
                                              • countertop: black
                                              • backsplash: warm grey/greige
                                              • bar stools: white with chrome

                                              I also have 2 other windows that have white plastic shutters (I am not changing or covering those). The sliding doors are 6 meters wide x 2.5 meters high, so the curtains will be very noticeable. What color should they be?

                                              I recently painted my living room walls with magnolia paint.The furniture is made of bamboo and it is tan in colour with a leopard skin upholstery which has brown colour dominating. The middle of the walls has lined with wall paper borders which has burgundy background with gold flowers imprinted on it. The floor tile is sand in colour and the ceiling is painted white in colour. The living room is backlit (it has one window that allows sunlight from outside) because it is in the basement. What colour of curtain can I use for my living room.
