Curtain Color Advice

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?

I don't think lime green looks good anywhere. A light blue would compliment the tan walls and the redwood floors. I hope that helps.

I am not sure about lime green - but it sounds very pretty to me. If not lime green, I think a light shade of green is always perfect.

I think of green as a neutral. Look at nature; green is the main color. Grass, trees, bushes - it supports every other color.

How about going with a red print. I have dark beige walls also with white woodwork. My sofa is beige and I have a red chair and ottoman. I purchased red print curtains with yellows, whites and greens in them from J.C. Penney. In the dining room I purchased just the valance to allow for more light. Hope this helps.

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.

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.
