Have you decided to make yellow the main color of your room? A real ray of sunshine, yellow is perfect for energizing your walls! But faced with this singular color, the misstep can quickly happen when it comes to choosing the rest of your decoration. What color curtains with yellow walls? Discover here our ideas to match your curtains to your wall covering!
YELLOW AND GREY: A SAFE BET
Yellow and gray have also made a lot of noise in 2021, being elected colors of the year by Pantone. By opting for a gray curtain , you can easily soften the space without fearing the wrong note. For example, create a Scandinavian identity with a light gray curtain or sheer, or a New York atmosphere with dark grey. Also consider combining yellow with anthracite or black to give a particularly sophisticated style to your room.
YELLOW AND BLUE: DYNAMIC AND CONTEMPORARY
This energetic duo does not rhyme only with Scandinavian decoration! Let yourself be tempted by this explosive contrast for your ethnic chic, vintage or even Art Deco-inspired interiors! Yellow and blue will add a warm and joyful touch to your room, regardless of the shades chosen : mustard yellow and duck blue or midnight blue, lemon yellow and lagoon blue, ocher yellow and gray blue… A combo to adopt without risk in almost any all the pieces !
YELLOW AND WHITE: SIMPLE BUT EFFECTIVE
What color curtains with yellow walls? White will be your best ally if you are afraid of making a mistake. No chance of being wrong! A white curtain or veil will have the advantage of reinforcing the luminosity of the yellow but of calming down the whole decoration. We particularly like the combination of white and mustard or ocher in the bedrooms, including the children’s bedroom.
To provide an organic style to your room, you can combine your yellow walls with curtains in natural hues. A beige curtain will provide a soft atmosphere , especially if combined with pale yellow. For a more invigorating result, opt for the combination of vitamin yellow + terracotta (good humor guaranteed). Finally , khaki or celadon green will bring a note of freshness and a natural, even tropical spirit, which you can support with the presence of plants.
If you are not an expert in decoration, we advise you to refrain from red, orange, apple green and purple. These too energetic colors combined with yellow will make your decor fall into “too much” and steal the show from your walls. Remember: less is more!
The simplest solution if you are not sure: choose a plain curtain or sheer if you have opted for a patterned wallpaper (for example in a color present on the wallpaper). If you have plain yellow walls and the rest of your decoration remains sober, you can totally afford a patterned curtain, which will bring relief to the room.
