We just moved into this house and I'm having a hard time deciding on curtains. I'm not a big fan of white curtains, but I need something bright to balance out this wood paneling. I want colorful, but red and black is tricky to match. There are some blue accents in the room, but I feel like blue curtains would clash.

What color curtains would you hang in this room???

NEW PICS PAGE 6. I think it's much better now :)

I would do a simple sheer and then have the remote shades myself --- i love the ones that are between glass!

I wouldn't be able to just change the curtains, sorry. The room is so dark, the first thing I would do is change the couch covers. Unless painting was an option, in which case I would do that first.

grey? similar to your carpet... if you can find something with like grey & sheer stripes that would be cool

the brown walls are what's making it harder to match with red & black, i know paneling is hard to work with but if you can paint the walls white you could throw in some royal purple in the drapes & some throw pillows, that would be pretty sweet

Just get accordion pleat blinds. Buy them at Penney's, you get the best bang for your buck. I hung mine myself (with a little help) it's not hard.

Maybe a light grey, like the carpet or a little lighter. Try to get a couple pillows to match.
