I'm completely stuck on what colour/s of curtains to get for the living room . The room is a standard victorian terrace knocked through (ie long and thin) with a bay at one end and a small long window at the other. It's painted in little greene french gray with original mid-oak stained floorboards and a mix of neutral coloured furniture (woods, brown and grey fabrics, a couple of lighter painted pieces).
I'm thinking some sort of greyish tweed type fabric for the curtains but worried that it is going to make the room just feel really dismal. It doesn't get a huge amount of natural light and we mainly use it in the evenings so I'm going for cosy rather than light and airy.
