Need help with curtains for our living room!

jonasbryApril 18, 2013
Hi!

In our new flat (first) we have windows facing the south, and during the day (and summer) they let in A LOT of light. As our TV is in the living room (facing the south windows) we need a heavy set of curtains to block the light. We do not want the basic black out shades, going for curtains.

Which color do you think will suits this living room? (Preferably something from Ikea.. broke from buying the flat, lol).

Thanks in advance!

I'd match the wall paint as closely as I could.

Hi there! Congratulations on your new flat! It looks wonderful. I agree that you should match the wall color with the curtains. If you want light control you will need to use either a lined curtain or a very thick fabric. You may need to go one step up from Ikea and try Restoration Hardware or Crate and Barrel to get a few more options in lined draperies. You can still get the rods from Ikea! Good luck.
