Need help with drapery color!

Is a tone on tone ok for drapes? Im getting shutters installed and the drapes will be permanently open. My walls are a linen color...so I can either go same as walls or darker. Appreciate your advise. Current draps are wrong color for room.

If you're set on going either the linen tone or a bit darker, I would definitely find a shade a bit darker (unless they are the same tone with some sort of light design or pattern on it).

Have you considered ivory or lighter colored drapes (with or without a color pattern on them)? I feel like it would really help brighten the room vs having drapes that are the same color as the wall or even the dark ones that are there now.

I never considered lighter. I want to replace the sofa and chair with a chocolate brown sectional.

why? sectionals are rarely attractive, and that will be a lot of brown.

I agree there are lots of ugly ones out there. We need more seating. My shutters will be white. It will not be too much brown.
