Hello - I am about to paint our living room a cream (with many helpful suggestions from a previous thread). I am useless with colour, and my problem is that there is a dusky pink carpet insitu that can't be removed. (rented house)

What colour curtains should I buy? If 'natural' then how dark or light? Cream on cream seems alittle dull but maybe I just can't visualise it?

Any suggestions are most appreciated.

how about a patterned cream pair to add some texture
I am assuming the sofa, carpet and walls are all plain?

all plain...I think a pattern is required, don't really want to be flowery. Ticking is my favourite, but am not paying for handmade curtains for a house we are not going to be in for alot longer (hopefully)

you could do Cream as long as it has a texture and Cream rug which could have a pattern would pull it all together some fancy finials or tie backs would complete the look i think

any other ideas apart from cream? I would just like to say at this point that I bloody hate this carpet...

also the room is currently a pale yellow with slightly darker yellow curtains that have a pale orange and green leave pattern on
. I have put up with this for enough now and ccan bear it no longer. grin
