  • I would say sometime light in color. If you go with dark curtains it will make the the room look dark and small.

  • How about an off white? I think it is called eggshell or alabaster. The room sounds nice! Either of those colors would be perfect! Let me know! message me,o.k.

  • The eggshell or off white would be a beautiful contrast with the red. Is it a bedroom? You should coordiante the color of the bed covering with the curtains.

  • I think a gold color would look great...bring out the color of the floor. but what i always did was go to behr.com and you can download a program. it's like 4.99 for the year use as many times as you want and you can upload photos of your house and paint where you want different things, just to see the colors. i used it alot when i first got my house. And sometimes my color ideas are a ittle crazy but they usually look great i tend to not like safe colors.

  • Any neutral should look good. Since red is such a bold color I wouldn't do another bold color. I think anything in white, off-white, tan, gold, brown family would be nice. You could even do a neutral with a red stripe in the pattern. Just make sure that the curtains "pull the room together".
