I need help with drapes for my living room. The walls are BM Soft Fern and here is a picture of my rug. The chair upholstery is similar to the blue in the rug. I would like to do green drapes but I'm having a hard time with the color and pattern. Any recommendations?

Both those colors are quite "washed out". The drapes could add some punch...how about a jade or a darker steely blue for the drapes.

When I enlarge the picture of your rug, I see a grey/green/brown. That on your windows would be striking.

These are great suggestions - thank you. I wasn't sure if the drapes should match or contrast the wall...

Carbary, I got it at Home Goods. They have great rugs there at great prices. Obviously you won't find my exact one, but maybe something similar.
