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!

Question: Color Advice for Curtains

Photo of bed and windows behind it.I just painted my bedroom walls Benjamin Moore Nimbus Gray, which is really blue. On my bed I have a solid quilt in a pink, almost watermelon color, with blue and white toss pillows. I have light maple furniture and a cream colored carpet and white cellular shades. I wanted to add curtains, but am stumped as to what color they should be.

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.

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 hopeful is on the right track. I was thinking pale leaf green, because then you can incorporate some other shades of green in the décor later. When I saw the photo, I thought southwest colors and other nature colors like tan, brown, subdued gold, etc.

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!

Question: Curtain Color Advice

My furniture in my living room is burgundy paisley, walls are two-toned burnt orange/burnt yellow.

By Kaye

By kimwilson558006/23/2014

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!

By rainyjo

By jean leiner [14]05/16/2014

If you want the curtains to frame the window, then cut the curtain panel in half, and hem the cut sides, hang 1 cut panel on either side with the brown sheer on one side, and the white sheer on the other. 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.

By Sandi [391]04/17/2014

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.

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.

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.

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.

Question: Bedroom Curtain Colour Advice

What colour curtain goes with light brown walls and and black furniture? What colour bedding will go it?

By Michell


Most Recent Answer

By Louise B. [5]01/07/2014

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.

By Louise B. [5]12/18/2013

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.

Question: Curtains or Valance Color Advice

I just purchased a multi color rug with rectangles of sage green, blue-green, rust-orange, goldish, red, and brown. We just purchased a brown leather sofa and chair; it is a deep brown and when you look at it you see hints of burgundy. My problem is that my walls are a light green almost like a mint and the trim is like a mauvy green (if there is such a color). I have bought a ton of curtains and valances in all kinds of colors to try to tie it all together and I am tired of buying and returning valances. I am thinking I should just use valances to tie it together instead of curtains. Any suggestions? I wish I could post pictures. I was hoping to not have to paint my trim and walls, but...

If you want to warm up the room, you should go with colors on the warm side of the color wheel, such as red, yellow, or orange. Brown is also a warm color. I think some lively throw pillows in a pattern with one or two of those colors, or perhaps also greens, maybe a throw, and then some art and knickknacks that are bright in color. I think that the art on the walls goes a long way to brightening up the room.

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!

Blue and red are both primary colors, not complimentary, as the former poster stated. Orange is the compliment of blue, and compliments enhance the color of each other. I certainly wouldn't put a red sofa in a blue room, but people have different tastes. You might consider a rust or brown, as these are more neutral.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Anything in the warm color family will work and make the room warm and comfy. Red, orange, peach. 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. If you like them tied back, then buy tiebacks.

This is a very neutral pallet; you could go with any color you like -- pattern or solid.

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.

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.

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.

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.
