my bedrooms walls are painted taupe. my bedding is cream colored with tiny dots running down the middle in silver & gold. from this bedding fabric, i've made cornices/valances on 3 windows. i need some privacy and thought sheer panels might work. i'm not sure if i should be looking at cream colored sheer panels or taupe colored. i found some taupe panels online that have a metallic thread running through them. any color advise would be helpful. thanks in advance.

As long as the taupe sheers will let in the light and don't look too dark, I think those would be okay, and would contrast the curtains. If you want a continuous look, go with the cream sheers. The latter would be my personal choice.

Can you send a picture of your room? That would be helpful.

unable to take a picture of my bedroom at the present time. sorry. i'm searching online and believe the taupe sheers i'm interested in are light enough and would let the light in. my concern was the cream colored valance/cornice....i didn't know if cream would blend better. i appreciate any and all help. thanks again.

Taupe sheers with cream valance can be nice. These colors complement each other and create contrast. So the question is if you like contrast or more of a monochromatic color scheme. You can't go wrong. Choose what you love the best.
