Curtains and walls are condemned to understand each other. In fact, the ideal would be to choose them at the same time, so that they are seen as a whole, either in harmony or contrast. If you have doubts, we help you with these 6 combinations that work:
1. WHITE ON WHITE, SAFE BET
When in doubt, everything to the target. It is a color that never fails, not for the walls, because it helps to multiply the light – it reflects 96% of the light it receives – nor for the curtains, because it makes them visually lighter. If you fear that it is too “transparent”, go for a fabric with more weight.
2. WHITE AND BEIGE, A VERY NATURAL AND TIMELESS DUO
The advantage of opting for white for the walls is that you can afford to choose curtains in the color you want because it goes well with everything. But if you are looking for a natural look and without very marked contrasts, beige or sand tones are a safe bet to create timeless environments.
3. WALLS AND CURTAINS IN THE SAME COLOR RANGE
If you are looking for a very harmonious and integrated look, the best option is to choose a color range and take it to walls and curtains. If you want a little contrast, you can reserve a softer color for the walls and give the curtains a higher point. Or on the contrary, depending on what you want to highlight.
4. CURTAINS BLENDING WITH THE WALLS
Do you want walls and curtains to look like a whole and not know where one begins and the other ends? Transfer the color from the walls to the curtains, as has been done here. Not only will you create a more integrated and harmonious set, but by blurring the boundaries between wall and curtains, space will appear wider.
5. TO EXTREME WALLS, WHITE CURTAINS
Have you fallen in love with a patterned wallpaper with a lot of visual weight? Opting for white curtains will help lighten the whole, especially if, like here, the colors of the paper are very intense. Another option is to choose the color of the paper and bring it to the curtains.
6. COLOR DUO TO MATCH THE WALLS
If you have two wall colors, as in this bedroom in which the headboard wall has been highlighted in gray while the rest have been painted in white, a very decorative option is to reproduce the same colors in the curtains, especially if you choose to overlap two, like here. A tip: reserve the most intense color as the curtain cover and the lightest color for the base curtain.
