I’d go with an ivory or cream color before navy. The navy might be great for the winter time, but not now.

This may not be your style, but I like to inject a little warmth and texture into a room with gray walls.  Maybe a linen or burlap curtain with bamboo shades behind them?  It would look great with the beige and brown in the chair.  You can always inject color into the room with pillows and art.

I don’t know how well you.could match the colors but maybe like a teal tan and navy stripe curtain.

Natural color? like a Medium woven curtain? We got some AWESOME burlap-y curtains from Bed Bath and Beyond! Big Brass grommets.  But if you dont want browns, then maybe an olive green? or Dark grey? Tones work so well together!

@Bostongrl25: What about a pattern. Small patterns act as neutrals but then it can also have a few colors and the pattern also livens up the space.

Either a offwhite/gray pattern or teal and bring in another color. Then that second color could be pillows on your couch to bring it all together. As well as in a rug.

Also, look at different materials. Raw Sillk has a great sheen that adds depth of texture to the room and can brighten up a darker color or liven up a netural.

Not these colors, but this link allows you to design your own colors

I would keep the curtain neutral. I wouldn’t want the curtain to be the first thing the eye was drawn to upon entering the room. Neutral doesn’t have to be  a solid color though. A subtle plaid in a silk drape, pulling in the grey, blue, and off white would work for me.

Love the chair! Add your hits of color with pillows, artwork, vases etc.

I love the long drapes with two different colors.  Could you get teal and then put on a pattern at the bottom like the pic of the chair you have.  That way it would tie the pattern in, get pillows for the couch.

@Bostongrl25:  I am a little young – so this might sound crazy at first but I would choose a clashing pattern for the curtain. This, with a few cute pillows on the plain couch will help draw everything together and it will all seem alive rather then dull.

With this rug?

And these pillows? (you don’t have to use ONLY colors from the chair! 🙂

@Bostongrl25:  you can attach them by that no stitch fabric glue, there a few options.  There’s one that you just have to iron and they make a seam.  I can’t sew to save my life, and I’ve done these  curtains before.

@Bostongrl25:  Actually, they are a great choice! What’s on the floor and what other things do you have in the room? Artwork? bookshelves? coffee table? Its pretty easy to find things to scatter around the room to pull in some color.
