what colors would go well with this aqua/teal?

I am going to attempt to PIP, but it may not work on my Mac.  We painted this room yesterday, which will be my craft desk space, along with some storage.  I want to put curtains up instead of spending $300 on closet doors.  What color fabric should I look to get? It is SW waterfall

Re: what colors would go well with this aqua/teal?

  • I am picturing orange damask/trellis/geometric patterns. :)

     ETA: if you don't like orange other colors such as red, lime green, pink could work well too. Have you looked at houseofturquoise.com? There are tons of inspiration pics to look at!

  • Agree with orange if you want a nice punch of color. For more subtle, I'd go with a sage/pale green.

  • definitely orange. I like the geometric patterns suggestion.
  • I have always liked black and white with teal or maybe a gray.

    Here are some of my favorite fabrics:

    Dwell Studio Charcoal:

    Dwell Studio Bella Porte Charcoal

    Maybe one of these from Premier Prints:

    Premier Prints Gotcha Twill White/Black 

    Premier Prints Dandelion White/Black 

    Premier Prints Cadence Black/White 

    Premier Prints Twill Gotcha Girly Blue 

     

  • Thanks!  I am glad I have lots of options- these all look/sound great.  And, yes, I do like orange ;).

  • A pale sunny yellow with a pattern.

  • I agree with geometric pattern fabric...

    Suggestions for colors... white and orange, red or yellow. 

    I would also paint the wooden trim white...

  • Same difference, but I think a red would look great.

    My H is big on leaving wood alone.  It's the same all through the house, so we are leaving it, although I have been trying to convince him white would look better ;).

  • I think it depends on how you want the room to feel....that color leaves you open to options.

    I am curious about the color though....it looks much more green in your pictures than I remember it being.  I thought it was a bit more 'Tiffany box' blue.

    Yes, it looks Tiffany blue in real life.

  • If it's truly Tiffany blue...I love that aqua and red together, like how they always do the stage in the Bachelor women tell all
  • I think white would look fantastic.
