What Curtains Go With Blue Walls? [15 Awesome Ideas!]

Blue is one of the most soothing colors in the spectrum. From the ocean to the sky to the mist hanging over mountains, blue calms us and brings us a sense of peace. It's no wonder we so frequently choose it as an interior paint color in our homes. But when it's time to design, you may find yourself asking, what curtain colors go with blue walls?

Think of cool colors or complementary colors when you choose your curtains to showcase your blue walls. Some of the most popular are:

  • Whites
  • Grays
  • Yellows
  • Oranges

Whites and grays are both cool colors like blue, which is why they work so well against a blue wall. Surprisingly the other colors that go well are colors that would be opposite on the color wheel. Orange is the complementary color to blue, so depending on your shade of blue, anything in the yellow to the peach range may work surprisingly well. Getting curious? We've presented some great examples in this video. You can watch the video first or proceed with the post below.
