Better Homes and Gardens suggests hanging drapes high in rooms with peaked ceilings to maximize effect and using yellow curtains to add instant sunshine to a room. Use green or floral print drapes with matching artwork to create a harmonizing garden theme. Painted furniture is effective at blending scenery together.
Floor-to-ceiling drapes create additional impact on the color scheme of a room. Bold drape colors on geometric patterns create attention-grabbing focal points in rooms where the curtains are the main attraction. When an accent wall or fixture is center stage, use lightweight and airy curtains that recede into the background while complementing the overall theme.
