Choosing just the right color curtains can complete the overall color scheme of your room. This guide contains curtain color advice.
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.
Don't know if you're into it or not, but I think with this room's particular 'ambiance', a touch of art deco would look nice,
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 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.
Would moss green curtains look good on kitchen french doors? The kitchen walls are a pumpkin color and the floor is brown.
Thanks for all your responses. Great idea to get material.
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.
Can you please suggest a curtain color for a pink wall?
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 have a brown sectional with egg shell color walls and a brown carpet.
With that colour pallet, you have a very wide choice for colour. Personally I'd go for egg shell drapes, as I like my living room drapes to recede and provide a background. However, if you are looking for the drapes to "pop" the room, think about the effect the colours would have. Blues and greens (shades of either could work) would cool the room; bronze or red or gold would warm it up. You could always add colour with art work, throws, cushions, and accent pieces.
I am having trouble picking out curtains for my livingroom, my walls are a "urban putty " by Sherwin-Williams which is a light neutral color, and my sectional is taupe with chocolate brown pillows and brown, beige, gray, and slate blue mix pillows. I need something to make this room pop, I tried almost everything from JCPenney and either they match the walls or the sectional. Also the carpet is in the same color family, I didn't realize that when I was buying my sectional. Could you please give me a few options?
I have two couches. One is a green color like the one below maybe a shade or two darker and the other couch I have is mostly the lighter brown, but just a bit more of a tan. I don't want to have my curtains be brown and green too. I am thinking like a plum since the colors are warm. What other colors can I have my curtains be?
Find the complimentary for the green.
Find the complimentary for the brown
Find the mid point between the two complimentary colors.
It will be in the plum family.
You are dealing with a lot of strong colors., but you seem to know what you're doing. I bet you can make it work.
I have a mobile home. I am redecorating the living and dining room. I am going to use the same curtain on the dining room and living room windows. I have mauve colored carpet and white walls with a little green and purple in the wall board. My sofa is beige. What color curtains would be best, sage and white or taupe and cream? I have attached a photo of the curtains and the color options.
Thank you..I decided on the Sage and White..there is enough green in the Wallboard ..they will be beautiful..
My living room is all neutral colors with high ceilings, my couch is a taupe color, my walls are a goldish tan color and my fireplace has a green marbling in it. My living room and dining room are open to one another and I need help figuring out what color curtains to add to my living room along each side of the fireplace. Attached is a picture of my living room and dining room. Any suggestions?
...And I didn't even wake the dog.
I have a theater room at home. The walls are black, the carpet is black with some gold in it. The couches are a bright orange. What color should I do curtains for the room?
Sounds like a lot of black so I would try and mix in the orange and gold colors for my curtains.
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.
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:)
Thank you, Louise. The thought of Christmas came to my mind as well. I think you explained the whys and wherefores rather nicely.
My wife and I can't seem to figure out much together when it comes to home decor. Any advice on curtain colors for a family room and dining room? See attached pics.
Note: the family room is attached to our kitchen which has light beige paint and valences with red and khaki. The dining room has gold paint, brown furniture, plus curtains and a chandelier that need to be replaced. Thank you very much for any help :)
Here's a better pic I think!
I have a red accent wall in my living room what color curtians should I get? My sofa is ivory.
I'd match the curtains to either the sofa or the wall colour.
