Decorating & Furniture/Color of curtains?


Hello!  My apartment is pretty much the bachelor pad with black leather couches
and a large entertainment system.  I have white walls.  I wanted to add some
color without having to stretch my budget too much.  So I'm looking at some
pillows and curtains, but have no idea what color will go with this room.  As of
now it's a bit too dark.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thank you!

Hi Joseph,
         Choose bright colours from the colour wheel. Luckily white and black are both neutrals meaning any colour will look good with them. Yellows, bright red-oranges, or even lime or yellow-greens would all be good choices, as would Fuchsia. Hope this helps :)
