Question
Hi Jenny,
   I just moved into  a new apartment, the upholstery on my couch and loveseat is a color called Saddle ( it looks like the color of cinnamon) The problem I am having is I don't know what color drapery would be best for the room.  

Answer
Hi Lisa,

Consider a chocolate brown drapery, and if privacy is an issue, add sheer panels over the window(s) as well.   

If you'd prefer a mix of color tones, look for a drapery that incorporates the "saddle" color as well as some white and either green or chocolate brown.  It can be a geometric, a pin-stripe or perhaps a floral print.

Regards,
Jenny

PS:  Staying with "autumnal" colors is best.

Expertise

Visit my web site at: http://www.jennifertaylorwojcik.com Decor: I've written about it, planned it, designed it and colored it, and I've never stopped loving it. It's not what you spend, or who made it, it's how it makes you feel.

Experience

College, advertising, public relations, marketing, free-lance writing and a plethora of creative endeavors have led me here. As an entrepreneur in decorative product design, I learned the hard way how tough it can be to be in business for yourself. A stint at a law firm taught me humility too. Some three thousand questions ago, I wondered if I could really help. Obviously, I'm still here and still taking your questions. God Bless You!
