How to Coordinate Curtains with Your Wall Colour

It is a known fact that your space will look out of sync if furnishings don’t match each other. The same rule applies for window treatments and walls. You have to synchronize your curtains with wall colour for a professionally organised and decorated look.

Repeat the Wall Colour

Make sure the pattern on the furnishing fabric contains at least one colour that matches the wall for a colour-coordinated look. Choose a pattern with an ivory or white background if your walls are ivory or white. You can repeat the colour in the fabric pattern’s foreground design or background if your walls are more colourful. In either case you don’t have to hold out for a precise match of colour. Just make sure that the colour in the pattern is neither too dark nor too light when compared to the wall colour.

Make It Monochromatic

The colour of your curtain fabric and your wall should belong to the same colour family if you want a classic look. However, opt for a lighter or darker version. Your furnishing can be two to three shades lighter than the wall colour if you prefer a subtler colour difference.

Choose Complementary Colours

On a colour wheel harmonizing colours sit opposite each other. For a balanced look use complementary colour schemes. You can also use solid-coloured walls with solid-coloured curtains. But you should also bring in some contrast to temper the distinction. For this use a fabric pattern that has a neutral shade that matches your wall colour. If your walls are painted blue, orange is the complementary colour. You can use an ivory or orange stripe for the curtains.

Keep It Neutral

If the colour on the walls is strong, the overall look can be toned down by choosing curtains in a neutral colour. With both cool and warm colours white curtains work really well. With warm-coloured walls opt for champagne, ivory, or buttercream curtains for something less stark, and dove gray or oyster for walls painted with a cool colour. For the neutral look you can use both tone-on-tone or solids on printed fabrics. You can decorate the curtains with a different band of fabric that matches the colour of your wall on the leading hem or edge to add visual interest.
