Decorating & Furniture/wall colour


Hi there,
I have a small bedroom, which has a light/medium apricot carpet.
At the moment the walls are light grey which dosent suit it I feel.
Could you please suggest curtain and wall colours to suit.
Thank you

Hi Sharon
Have a look at the color wheel here and find the color of your carpet - I am guessing it is something like the 4th one in from the edge on E2.  Look for its exact opposite - the 4th one in from the edge on E1 and you will have a lovely shade of blue which will complement your carpet beautifully.

Tie it all together with a patterned fabric like this  for the curtains which brings both of the colors together.

Kind regards
