Decorating & Furniture/urgent


I painted my wall smokey topaz.. and i just bought burgundy curtains... is that a good idea? please advise...

I've seen those colors combined quite often. To tie the look together, you could add curtain rod tassels or tie-backs that include both colors or combine the colors in other accessories throughout the room. If it works for you - it's a good idea. How you "feel" in a room is the most important factor in decorating.
