Perhaps you’ve just bought your first home with green walled rooms and are wondering what curtains go with green walls. Or conversely, you love the idea of green living room or bedroom walls and want to ensure you select the right curtains to match this color.
The color green offers a more diverse visual range than most other hues, regardless of whether you go for warm or cool greens. Since both cool and warm greens have distinctive qualities, it is best to determine whether your walls are cool green or warm green before choosing the most pleasing curtains. This is where we come in to help you make an informed decision by giving you pointers on the best curtains that work with green walls. Let’s delve right in!
Curtains for Warm-Green Tone Walls
Warm shades of green range from olive greens to yellow hues. If your walls are warm green, charcoal gray or red curtains are the best colors to choose as these colors will soften the effect of the warm green color.
For a neutral look, go for tone-on-tone color by choosing the same shade of green for the curtain as that of the wall. For a contrast, select orange, yellow, brown or white curtains. These colors will create an earthy feel and they all work well with warm shades of green.
Curtains for Light Cool-Green Tone Walls
Light cool green shades like mint, sage or aqua create a refreshing look for the walls. These shades have blue undertones, which can be paired with coral or orange curtains. But if you’re not looking for a bold color, opt for warm grays or brown curtains. For aqua green walls, white or blue curtains work wonders on visually expanding the space.
Curtains for Dark Cool-Green Tone Walls
Medium cool-green shades consist of darker aquas with blue undertones. To create a color contrast, white patterned sheer curtains or red, orange and violet work best. Medium cool-green walls can also be paired with warm gray, orange-brown or red-brown curtains.
