Q&A: Red living room furniture, what color walls and drapery?

Question by hairdoer: Red living room furniture, what color walls and drapery?
My living room furniture is red, I’m wondering what color to paint the walls, and what color window treatments I should get. My coffee table and end tables are walnut, and I have hard wood floors.

Best answer:

Answer by juliefizzle
For paint, you could go with a deep brown or a slate gray. I think gold window treatments would work with a red couch and brown walls. Not a shiny gold, but more of a sheer gold. Experiment by picking up some paint samples at Lowe’s or Restoration Hardware. Have fun!

How-To Use our Drapery Yardage Calculator

In order to figure yardage for your drapery panels at home, you must have the cut length (finished length and the allowance for the desired hem, as well as rod pocket size) times the number of drapery panels you will be making. If the fabric has a repeat, you will be needing 1 panel at the regular cut length. The, you must add the number of inches in the repeat to the additional panels.

Sounds complex? Watch this video and learn how to use drapery yardage calculator so as to determine the yardage that you will be needing for the specific panel size that you’re fabricating.
