Pink, orange, aqua blue, yellow and lavender bedding set.

Pink and orange bedroom curtains would look great with this bedding set! New bedroom wall paint was not in the budget so I had to work with the aqua blue walls that were left from my baby brother's nursery.


That didnt' make me very happy since blue is so "boy". But then I found this really cool, pink, orange, yellow, lavender and aqua girls' bedding set that actually looks great with the existing color of the room.

The only problem is that the full size comforter set only came with the patchwork quilt, the bedskirt and two pillow shams. The collection
didn't come with curtains.

My mom found the (CHEAP!) white curtains with little flowers that are in the pictures that she says look just fine to her. She says that the baseboards and window trim is painted white and even if they weren't that you can't go wrong with white.

I completely disagree! The flowers on the curtains are not the same style as the ones on the quilt and the white fabric just looks pale next to my colorful comforter.

Would someone please tell my mom that she should buy me some pink or orange bedroom curtains and take these ugly things down!

From the webmaster:

My decorating experience has taught me not to take sides or get in the middle of mother-daughter arguments and discussions on bedroom decorating ideas. But..this is not one of those cases since I'm going to disagree with BOTH of you!

Lorilee, you are right that the white curtains are not the best choice. I'm afraid that you would unintentionally create either a hot pink bedroom or a bright orange room that clashes with the wall color.

I can't see the flowered curtain panels very clearly but even though the flowers appear to be hot pink and lavender (or maybe blue?) they are not working with the bedding set. This is a good example where white does not work with everything.

As far as what color is best for your curtains, I don't believe pink and orange bedroom curtains are the best choice either. In my opinion, a very light yellow fabric would look amazing with the aqua wall paint color. Pink or orange would accentuate the white color of the molding which might have the same undesirable effect of the white curtain panels that you want to eliminate.

Pick up some swatches in all of the colors that we've discussed as well as lavender and a darker shade of aqua to see which is your favorite.
