Curtains on the windows are part of the style of the room. A correctly chosen color of fabric for curtains can become an effective accent of the design solution of a room, a mistake with textiles will cross out the entire architectural drawing of the room. Let's try to figure out how to find a harmonious combination of brown wallpaper with curtains.
The brown range of colors is invariably popular in interior decoration. But this is one of the most difficult colors.
The basic principle of creating a harmonious ensemble is to match the color of the curtains to match the wallpaper. Brown wallpapers can be cold or warm. For a cold tone of wallpaper, partners will be golden, wheat, lilac colors of the decor. Textiles of carrot, yellow, red, pink colors are suitable for warm brown tones.
The combination of window cloths and wallpaper can be contrasting. The classic combination is white and brown. This option adds austerity and an atmosphere of luxury. White curtains will brighten the room.
Bright orange and light purple, turquoise and blue, yellow and gold shades of textiles will look good with brown wallpaper. It is worth remembering in order not to make the room colorful, you need to observe the proportion: three quarters of the base color and one quarter of the contrasting color. It is better to choose the maximum number of colors in one space no more than three, for a wider palette of colors you need special knowledge.
The interior can be designed in nuanced combinations. Brown walls are set off by curtains of similar tones - beige, cream, pink.
In this case, you need to ensure that the interior does not become boring and impersonal. You can add bright accessories, an additional accent curtain fabric of a different color or trim with a bright lambrequin.
Designers advise using a limited number of accessories so that there is no dissonance.
The third design option is the selection of curtains of the same color as the wallpaper, that is, brown. In this case, you can make the room too gloomy. However, if the wallpaper has a bright white damask pattern or golden monograms, curtains with the same pattern or color will create an ensemble in a classic style.
Thus, not only the color, but also the pattern of the wallpaper influences the choice of curtains.
How to choose the right texture?
The functional task of curtains is to close access to the sun's rays and prying eyes deep into the room. The aesthetic task is, being the central view of the room, to harmonize the space, to complete the entire look of the interior. Which fabrics for curtains to choose - smooth or embossed, with or without a pattern, will determine the design of the walls and furniture.
Silky flowing fabrics are suitable for smooth brown wallpaper. Quality fabrics are selected from satin or rayon. Furniture with carved details in rich colors will complete the composition
If the wallpaper is embossed, then the texture of the fabrics can be more voluminous. The floral relief of the wallpaper will not look good with mat curtains. The interlacing "matting" will well complement the same ligature of wallpaper or geometric relief. Convex monograms look good with striped curtains in the English style or solid colors.
Floral brown walls can be supported by similarly patterned curtains in the same colors; other colors will not match. For example, chamomiles are embossed on the wallpaper, and orchids on the curtains will become a dissonance.
It is better to limit yourself to plain curtains if in doubt about the composition of the picture.
Striped wallpapers are compositionally complemented by plain textiles or with flowers. Flowers can be stylized or naturalistic in tones of stripes on the wallpaper.
Wallpapers with damask patterns are ideally combined with plain curtains in the color of the pattern.
Classic golden monograms on brown wallpaper will perfectly complement the golden Empire style brocade curtains.
The simplicity or complexity of the wallpaper pattern determines the design of the curtains. The classics require a damask wallpaper pattern, golden bouquets on the canvas of the wall, golden threads in textiles. A lambrequin will be an indispensable element in such an interior. Lambrequin can be single, made of curtain fabric, or it can be complex, with the inclusion of a tulle assembly. The tulle in such compositions is usually white, cream, coffee or pale blue. Royal sophistication is given by the blue color of curtains with a gold pattern in combination with gold monograms on a brown background.
In interiors decorated in a modern minimalist style, the curtains should be utilitarian. Tulle and curtains are rarely used at the same time. Usually this is one thing.
In the northern rooms, with insufficient lighting, they are limited only with simple weave tulle; in sunny rooms, only thick curtains are hung to protect from the sun.
The use of blinds for the Art Deco and High-tech styles is becoming more and more popular. The combination of curtains and blinds looks beautiful.
The opposite effect is obtained in window decoration only with light transparent tulle, this removes the bulkiness of the window structure and looks fresh.
The texture and design of curtains should correspond to the functionality of the room. The kitchen needs light, easy-care curtains; to give the living room a more ceremonial look, complex draperies with grabs and lambrequins will be appropriate. It is better to decorate the bedroom with gentle calm colors, the study - with a geometric pattern with a simple design of Roman curtains.
Curtains for rooms of different illumination
An important nuance in the choice of fabric for curtains is the natural light of the room. In bright, sunny rooms, textiles in cold colors are a good option. Light olive, gray, turquoise, blue fabrics will refresh the brown tone of the walls.
Orange, yellow, hot pink, white should be chosen for the decor of the windows on the north side.
