I have a new house with Sherwood paint keratin on all walls. The living room and dining room are like a L shape. There is one big window in front, with 3 windows close together. Should I keep all curtain colors the same? I want to hang curtains and blinds. Can you please give me so ideas?

I have a beige carpet with white walls and there is a beige and black border along the vaulted ceiling. My furniture is black leather. I have a large picture window with 4 crank out windows. I'm looking to add a pop of color to the room, but I am not very good at going outside of the box. I tend to stick to neutral colors for fear of things not matching. Any suggestions on a curtain color would be appreciated.

Neutrals are wonderful! I suggest a warm gray or gray-blue for your curtains. Pops of color can be added elsewhere in the room using accent pillows, etc. For instance, I live in a rental house and cannot change anything except throw pillows, minimal artwork on walls. I have grayish-blue walls, white trim, and beige carpet to work with my personal beige sofa and love seat. I purchased throw pillows to tie in the colors of the wall, trim, carpet, and furniture.

Can you please suggest the color for the curtains and anything else that I can do to brighten the room?

At the moment it all looks very square, harsh and formal. I think curtains with a light brown or beige background would be good and just to soften down the square look, with a simple pattern of curved shapes. These could be in a darker shade of brown or a colour. If you choose a colour, add something else in the same colour elsewhere in the room for balance, such as in cushions or picture frames

I just painted my walls a dark rustic red color and one wall is accented with dark brown stained wood planks. My couches are dark leather brown, my ceiling is white, and the carpet is light tan. My wall trim is dark brown. What would be the best color curtains for the one big window in my living room? I though of hanging a burlap curtain, but I'm afraid that's too much light color with all the dark color in the room.

I have a floral pattern sofa. The walls are light sage, the verticals on the windows are dark brown. I have included photos of my sofa. I need valances. Please give me suggestions: solid, pattern, checked, or plaid and the color(s). Please respond as soon as you can.

A designer once told me to pick one or two colours from your sofa and use for accessories such as draperies, throw pillows etc. Because your upholstery is a floral I would go with a solid colour fabric for your valances.

My walls are a very soft sage. The sofa is floral with yellow, green, red, and orange. What color and pattern would work for valances? I need to tie the room together to make it look finished.

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.

My husband and I just bought a house. The living room/dining area is covered in gray and white tiles with gray walls. We do not have the money right now to remove them and lay hardwood floors. What color curtains would you suggest to go with all the gray and white?

Since grey and white are both neutral colors, almost anything goes. You could keep it neutral or got for a color pop like red, turquoise or even your favorite shade of green

I bought a cobalt blue (or perhaps a bit darker) velvet settee and want to know what color curtains and cushions would go best. I have white walls and each recess has grey painted shelves and cupboard. I have not got an image, sorry.
Thanks.

I'm stuck as to change up curtains. I'm taking down wood blinds, but need to hang energy efficient drapes as the sun bakes us in the evening for a couple of hours. See attached picture. The walls are barn red and beige as you can see and very dark with blinds.

I would use white curtains of a special material that reflects sunlight. The issue is you want something to maintain the lightness of the room while providing protection from the sun.

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!

So, I changed my mind. Men can be fickle, too.

This drapery color may not be ideal, but it readily serves to illustrate a point. Darker colors appear farther away, creating an illusion of depth, hence, more room.

If this drapery were white or near white, it would appear closer, causing the room to appear smaller. At least, that's my humble reasoning.

Try to brighten it up some. Even add some curtain rod decorations. There's endless possibilities for making some thing look like it's out of home and garden cheap.

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.

We recently bought curtains that once put up looked very similar to the wall color. We are debating whether to keep this color that blends with the wall color or to put up rust colored curtains similar to the pillow flipped over on the couch on the left in the same style. Suggestions?

Red, Royal Blue, Aqua. Nearly any color would work as your room is all neutral colors. Pick something bright - perhaps a bright print with some of the colors the same as your room.
