Decorating & Furniture/Black red and white


Hi ..

I have a black and red silk comforter. (More red than black)  In my younger day, I paired it with black curtains.   What color curtains can I use now that I'm not in those younger days?  The walls are winter white and I have no plans to repaint.

Hi Carol.  I usually like to keep my curtains as close to the wall colour as possible, in this case a shade of white.  Really, you have an endless possibility.  Red for a bolder look, black with maybe a band of red fabric on the sides or bottom.  You can even introduce silver into your colour scheme as it would look great with the black and red.  Just make sure you add silver accents throughout your room.  

I also offer an 'Ask the Decorator' service on my website. I would be happy to be of further assistance to you if needed.
Thank you, for your time.
