Green is beautiful, calming yet energizing color that will instantly enliven any room when used as the paint for the walls. And that’s why a lot of homeowners chooses any shades of green to paint their interior wall.
However, the fresh and natural beauty of green walls comes with some consequences, and the most common one is the difficulty to pair it alongside other colors. We often heard about homeowners who are facing difficulties to choose the right color palette for their room with green painted walls, especially for any objects that are placed directly against the green wall, like the curtains.
If you are facing similar problems, we want to help by testing a lot of different curtain colors to find the best options that you can choose. Without further ado, here are the results :
What Color Curtains go with Green Wall?
Your green painted wall already looks gorgeous, so why overcomplicate things and diminish its beauty by using any curtains that can be a distraction? Yes, you can keep things simple and choose a curtain that not only can blend nicely with the green wall, but also won’t ruin the beauty of the entire wall by using plain white curtains.
The white curtains can also keep the simplicity while at the same time bringing some modern twist to make the green wall a bit elegant. To better incorporate the curtains and the green wall, you can also choose any white curtains that had some green accents or patterns in them.
For any pale, light to medium-toned green shades, the cream can be a fun mix to warm up the looks of the green wall. Things can even go better for any green shades that had some yellow tone in them, such as olive green or lime green, as they will look perfectly flawless with any cream curtains.
And as neutral shades, incorporating cream will provide you a lot of spaces to add stronger, more vibrant colors to your color palette.
Darker Green Curtains
Actually, this can be a risky option as using green curtains on green walls can potentially create a monotonous look. However, if you can choose the right shades that still provide plenty of contrast between them, then this combination can be resulting in an awesome monochromatic theme.
Additionally, you can choose different tones to make the curtains and walls more easily distinguishable. For example, if you are using any green with blue undertone for your walls like mint, teal, or turquoise, you can combine it with yellowish-green tones like olive or lime green curtains.
Light Green Curtains
But if you are thinking that using darker green brings too much risks, then you can try a great alternative: lighter green. This can works even better if you are using any medium to dark green paint for your wall.
There are a lot of different variants of light green that you can use: from mint green, light sage to lime green.
Light Blue Curtains
Blue is sitting on the next of green in the color scheme, thus, using them together will create a stunning analogous look. At a glance, they will look pretty similar, but actually, still, bring enough contrast to differentiate them.
To get the best result, choose any blue curtains that had a similar brightness to your green wall. For example, as we did our experiment in a room with light-toned green, then the light blue curtains become the best option, but for any room with darker green walls, then dark blue or navy can be a perfect choice.
Dark Blue Curtains
This is another great blue shade that will compliment the green wall beautifully. The dark blue curtains offer plenty of boldness and elegance, while still bringing the typical airy and tranquil vibe as any other blue shades.

But if you prefer a calmer, neutral blue, then you can try blue-gray curtains. In fact, this can be the best blue curtains if you are using similar neutral green for your walls, such as sage green or pale green.
This combination evokes plenty of contrast, while still going together in similar tones.

Brown and green are earthy shades that we often found in nature. So, if you want to enhance the natural looks of the green wall, brown curtains can be a perfect option for you.
Although almost all shades of browns will work really well against the green wall, we tend to go with light brown such as tan or taupe as they won’t look as intense as any darker brown, thus will resulting in a more eye-pleasing visual appearance.
