Curtain Style and Color

Category Curtains

My daughter has two walls that are dark orange, and two walls light beige. Her furniture is dark brown leather, and her carpet is light beige. She has one large window in the dining room area and two sets of French doors across the room where the living room area is. The room is one large room with the kitchen, living room, and dining room all in this same large area. What style and color of curtains should she go with? Will greatly appreciate your help.

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.
