Curtain and blind colours for rooms with green walls

Orange curtains and blinds

It doesn't matter if your home has entire green rooms or just a standalone feature green wall; orange curtains or blinds can add an instant sense of rustic charm.

The calming, earthy tones of sage green walls pair beautifully with deep terracotta orange to achieve a Mediterranean-inspired aesthetic.

The zesty hues of tangerine orange or the spiciness of amber will bring vibrancy and energy to your rooms, which works especially well in kitchens and dining rooms.

Pink curtains and blinds

The combination of pink blinds or pink curtains and green walls will make for a fun, playful atmosphere that you're sure to fall in love with. Just think of rose bushes in full bloom!

Different shades of pink can all look stunning with green. To create a more refined and elegant space, go for a more muted pink. Or, if you want to revel in retro, pair bubblegum pink curtains with sage green walls.

Brown and beige curtains and blinds

Biophilic design schemes have enjoyed soaring popularity in recent years as people seek to bring a sense of the outdoors into their living room, bedroom or dining room.

Choosing neutral curtains in shades like brown, beige or wooden blinds will transport your living spaces straight into nature. Think of leafy green trees, rocky mountain scenes, and dense forests...all inside your home.

Green curtains and blinds

Yes, you read that right...green actually pairs beautifully with green!

Going for the monochromatic look by combining pale green walls with dark green curtains or green blinds will create a fabulous sense of layering and tonal depth.

Colour psychology has also shown how the colour green promotes feelings of calm, relaxation and positivity, meaning that bringing more green elements into your home can help boost your mood and even promote physical well-being.

White curtains and blinds

White curtains, blinds or shutters might seem like an obvious choice for rooms with green walls, but it's a colour combination that has timeless appeal.

It doesn't matter whether your green walls are solid colours or decorated with patterned wallpaper; white curtains or blinds (or even both together) will create a cool, classic elegance.

If you want to paint your walls in a brighter, more yellow-tinted shade of green, we recommend sticking with truer, crisper whites. If you'd rather paint a feature wall in a darker or more muted shade of green, you have the freedom to explore a broader range of window coverings - white, off-white and cream!

Choosing blinds and curtains by room

Depending on the shade of green you go for, you can create a calming atmosphere in your room, but to keep the relaxed theme, you need to pick the right curtains or blinds to enhance the mood. To help you, in this section, we explore how to choose blinds and curtains for green walls based on the rooms in your home.

So, whether you want to create a relaxing, chilled atmosphere with dark green walls and earthy tones or a lively kitchen space that's wonderful for entertaining guests, we've some curtain and blind ideas to bring your green walls to life.

Curtains and blinds for green living rooms

As a colour closely associated with nature, painting your living room walls dark green can be calming.

If you have your heart set on creating a relaxing environment, i.e. with sage green walls, consider neutral tones, like cream or grey blinds and curtains.

Alternatively, if you opt for a lighter shade of green, you may choose something brighter, like teal or pink curtains, to fill your room with energy.

Curtains and blinds for green bedrooms

Like the living room, creating a calming atmosphere in the bedroom can help you get a good night's sleep, so consider pairing your green bedroom with other deep colours, or blackout blinds, which will really encourage that restful sleep.

Deep blue curtains, for example, can add to the tranquillity of your green walls and are a perfect choice, especially if you're following a nautical theme.

Or, for a more contemporary style, pair your darker, more intense shades of green with beige curtains to bring a sophisticated edge to your green room.

Curtains and blinds for a green kitchen

Jona Lewie famously told us we'd always find him in the kitchen at parties, and for good reason. The kitchen is a fantastic spot for entertaining friends, whether you fancy yourself as a mixologist or hosting another edition of kitchen island discs.

As such, light green walls are the order of the day in the kitchen as they offer an exuberant energy. To maximise the light in your kitchen, consider adding white blinds, curtains, cabinets and tiles to create a bold and inviting space.

Another key consideration in the kitchen is fabrics - the last thing you want is to stain your curtains or blinds. To reduce the risk of marks appearing, consider PVC roller blinds or aluminium Venetian blinds - these are both durable and, more importantly, waterproof. So you can scrub vigorously while washing up, happy that your blinds are protected from splashes.

Curtains and blinds for green dining rooms

Rooms designed for entertaining, like the kitchen and dining room, are the ideal spaces to inject lively shades of green into your home.

You could choose curtains that emphasise the room's energy to complement your light green walls, like vivid oranges or soft pinks.

Or, add some understated sophistication to your dining area by adding dark purple curtains.

You can even extend the colour palate to your furniture by selecting chairs and furniture that match the colour of your blinds and curtains, really embellishing the sophisticated look and feel of your dining room.

Curtains and blinds for green bathrooms

Green is associated with nature, health and rejuvenation, making it a wonderful colour for your bathroom. Imagine kicking your day off surrounded by the visual representation of vitality...

You could go for a lively lime green shade to emphasise the feelings of wellness or a deep forest green to create the perfect ambience and depth for relaxing into a hot bath.

If you have chosen dark green walls, make sure you pair these with white blinds and white tiles to contrast the dark walls and prevent the room from becoming too bright.

On the other hand, if you've chosen light green walls, patterned blinds can help to invoke feelings of nature and health, especially if you choose a floral print.

Curtains and blinds for green children's rooms

When decorating your kids' bedroom, remember to keep things light and inviting, opting for pastel colours and kinder hues, like mint green.

When you've decided to go with green walls, it's time to select curtains and blinds to supplement the gentle decor. To do this, continue with the soft theme and pastel colours, like blue, cream, or even yellow curtains or roman blinds.

These shades will help you to make the most of the natural light in the room and ensure your little one loves their room.

Tips on choosing the perfect curtain colour for green walls

When it comes to choosing the perfect shade for your home, it's important to follow your own tastes, even if that means throwing the rulebook out of the window. Having said this, there are a few tricks to help you perfect your room's theme and vibe.

Think about how much light your room gets

The type of curtains you need will vary based on the room you're looking for and how much light it gets. For example, rooms that get a lot of sunlight may require heavier curtains that filter and block light.

Over time, the sun can fade your curtains, too, so investing in a robust fabric that's up to the job will ensure the aesthetic of your room is maintained for years to come.

Consider your fabrics

Following on from choosing the best curtains for the amount of sunlight, the type of fabric you go for can greatly impact how your curtains fall and last, too.

With this in mind, it's important you know your cotton from your linen and polyester from acrylic when it comes to buying your curtains, as each fibre will affect the look of your curtains and the overall design of your room.

Find what YOU like

This may be a bit of an obvious one, but you're going to spend a lot of time looking at your curtains, especially those in the living room and kitchen. Because of this, you need to make sure you love the pattern, fabric, texture and colour of your curtains.

Rather than trying to fit into a particular aesthetic, make sure your room is designed to your tastes. If you love big, bold prints, go and get them. If you want to create a minimalist retreat, embrace the clean design of Venetian blinds.


What colour blinds and curtains don't go with green walls?

When choosing curtains for anywhere in your home, you want to be sure that the colours won't clash and look visually jarring. If you have a predominantly green room, we'd recommend steering clear of colours like primary reds, as this might create too much contrast (and make you think of Christmas). Similarly, bright green walls with a yellow tint might not look their best when paired with purple or violet curtains.

What does the colour green represent?

In colour psychology, green is known to represent calmness, serenity, luck, positivity and vitality. It's a fantastic colour to choose, either for your walls or for your curtains and blinds, if you want to bring an ethereal sense of tranquillity into your home. Socially and culturally, it has links to sustainability (‘green’ energy and Greenpeace), nutrition (the traffic light system on food packaging in the UK, for example), and activity (getting the green light to do something means you have the necessary approval).
