Are these curtains the right "pop" or just too much?

My new curtains definitely add a "pop" of color to the living room but I am not sure if it is too much for the small space. There is varying solid color furniture in the room (and since it is the main living space-baby toys) and I need something to bring it together. Will these work or should I go for something more neutral and calm?

I feel that the drapes and the area rug really clash. The drapes are very contemporary and the rug is very traditional. Decide what style you prefer and try to build around that.

i like the drapes, i like the rug, but i don't care for them together.
i feel like, may some kind of natural fibre rug would be better with those drapes.

or some drapes with a more subtle pattern to them?
like, the stripes are grand, but if there wasn't so much contrast between the 2 colors, they would go better with the rug.

Hi---a bold rug would balance the space better. I like the window panels-nice choice... Cheers! http://www.rugsusa.com/rugsusa/rugs/chandra-rugs-inh21625/ivory/217INH21625IVY-5076.html

As stated before, the drapes are contemporary and the rug is traditional, they both work on their own but clash together...

I would replace the drapes with something plain. Choose and color you like from the rug and try it.

if you are considering adding punch to the room you might consider these ikat curtains with coordinating colour pillows in the same colour tones of your wall.
It will work better with your rug.

I like the curtains...young and fun! As long as you bring that color to sofa pillows and, as others have mentioned, change the rug soon. Love the colorful ones shown by natalie.
