Decorating & Furniture/curtain match


I have a black couch set w/ chrome legs. I want to give the room a cool feeling. What curtain suggestions do you have for this to happen. I was thinking blue but didn't know which tone. Can you please help?

Hi Raymond,
Its hard to say without seeing your space. Keep in mind its nice to create some contrast between the wall color and the window treatment. If you want the space to feel lighter than go with a subdued light blue color and if you want the space to feel darker than go with a medium toned blue almost gray color. If you want you can send an image to and I can take a look at it and give you a better answer. Hope this helps.
