Curtain Color Advice for Living Room?

I have medium blue carpet and light powder blue walls. The entertainment center and curio cabinets are walnut brown. I want to buy a red leather sofa and loveseat. Will they go with the blue and if so what color curtains should I get?

I'd say yes, red and blue, because the are complimentary colors ie they are opposites. But saying that it would depend on the type of blue and reds you use. ie american flag colors would not look great together. A bluish red would go best with blue decor, and a paler blue would go best with a robust red. Stay away from the primary colors, unless you want that fun young feel. For curtains I'd do red on the darker side. BTW I've got the same palette in my lving room blue and red. 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.
