Decorating & Furniture/What color for curtains?


Hello - I'm about to paint my LR walls a cranberry color (they are now yellow); my furniture is a sand color (maybe a bit darker) and the room is large; what color curtains would look best?

Hi Lisa,
      I would choose a patterned material that has both sand and cranberry in it. If your room is dark have the sand be the dominant colour; if the room gets a lot of light, cranberry should be dominant. Good luck, if you need anything else just let me know :)
