Combined curtains fit perfectly into almost any interior. And this is not surprising, because today the variety of fabrics is so extensive that it allows you to transform a window for every taste and budget.
One of the most enjoyable aspects of home decoration is the fine finish and decor. But if you don’t know how to combine wallpaper and curtains, the arrangement can drag on and bring a lot of negative emotions. To solve this problem, heed the advice of professionals and choose the most successful combination for yourself.
Most people prefer to do their own repairs. Due to a lack of knowledge and taste, many people combine colors incorrectly. The new finish, made at random, quickly becomes boring, the conflict of materials is felt on an intuitive level. If you liked the curtains and wallpapers, this does not mean that they will look harmonious in reality. It is necessary to try on the curtains for the wallpaper, avoiding obvious mistakes.
1. For gray wallpaper
Gray is versatile, so most shades are suitable for it. But if you want to create a calm “enveloping” interior, choose curtains and wallpapers of a similar color. When the monochromatic furnishings get bored, you can introduce bright color accents in the form of furniture or textiles to it: pillows and bedspreads.
Designers often use this technique in their projects, mixing shades of gray palette. But the main advantage of this option is that following it, it is impossible to make a mistake.
2. For beige wallpaper
Beige is often found in Russian apartments: it is a favorite shade of those who dream of a cozy and warm interior. The sandy scale provides calmness, but makes the atmosphere expressionless.
Curtains of all shades of brown , natural greens and white colors are suitable for such walls . But if you want to achieve an interesting effect, combine beige wallpaper with deep blue curtains with a matte texture.
3. For light wallpapers
Choosing curtains for white walls , it is impossible to miscalculate: any color and any texture will do. If there is little light in the room, use translucent curtains in pearl shades, if you want a brighter interior, hang colored textiles that will stand out favorably against the background of light finishes.
4. For dark wallpapers
Dark walls in black, emerald or deep blue look luxurious and create a magical atmosphere in the room. Be careful when choosing curtains: an overly light fabric will become an obsessive contrast, and a dark one will enhance a gloomy impression.
The best option for dark walls is neutral pastel shades : gray, sand, smoky pink. If you want as much light as possible to enter the room, choose a translucent fabric or give preference to light roller blinds or roman blinds.
5. For green wallpaper
The choice of curtains for green walls directly depends on the temperature of the shade. Intense natural tones look advantageous with yellow and turquoise tones, and trendy dark tones with straw and linen palettes.
Ash green is best paired with “cold” curtains: silver, pearl-gray and snow-white curtains with a shimmering texture will give a noble look to the interior.
6. For purple wallpaper
An eccentric palette of lilac and purple isn’t for everyone. Such walls come to the fore, so they should be muted with a light scale. Paired with them, mustard, milky and sandy shades of curtains look good.
But the gracefulness and “high cost” of light lilac wallpaper is given by deep velvet curtains, and lilac wallpaper – smoky gray, as in the photo.
7. For blue wallpaper
So that the interior does not seem faded, hang rich blue or light curtains with an active pattern: they will become an accent that will harmoniously fit into the atmosphere. Gray textiles with a cold undertone or a silvery texture look good.
8. For pink wallpaper
Usually pink rooms are created for romantic natures: most often these are bedrooms where there is no place for catchy colors. The atmosphere of lightness and tenderness will be supported by smoky pink walls, and ivory-colored curtains will act as a softening element and add even more airiness to the atmosphere.
9. For yellow wallpaper
Such a bold decision will require “muffled” curtains: beige and gray shades. Choose curtains with ornaments for plain walls and vice versa. Let the elements overlap with each other, but avoid overloading – an interior that is too bright will quickly become annoying.
10. For wallpaper with ornaments
To successfully combine decoration and textiles, take as a basis one of the shades in the picture. The contrasting print must be muted with plain curtains. It is not necessary to match the color exactly: let the fabric be a little lighter or darker, but the color temperature and tone must match.
