Just wanted to know what kind of curtains would someone put in a living room with a L shaped brick wall like this: http://www.brickwallfarmcottage.co.uk/assets/photos/brick%20wall.jpg . and the rest of the room painted a light shade of pink, like this: http://im1.shutterfly.com/procserv/47b5cc01b3127cce966e8a7dde9100000016103AZsmrFm4Y6 I cant repaint the room :( Any advice on lampshades? obscured_obloquy: what do you think about pale orange? @twainy: Im renting the place ... and cant re-paint it ... the idiot already painted it pink. @diplocase: Thanks ...

If you're stuck with the paint job, you want to make the best use of it you can. The room needs as much light as you can get, and to feel fresh and cool. Consider putting up swing-out curtain rods called "crane rods." They can be opened away from the window to let in more light (and cover up a little of the pinkness... More

Sorry but I have to disagree with everyone else's answers. I would put in four panels: One with a pink and white floral motif, like a Laura Ashley style, and the other with a complementary color scheme (they are often sold together in stores like Walmart, Target, other home stores) that is less feminine, so men will...

u might want to try a purple or an orange to brighten up the room a bit. Other than that any other color will clash the color.

Ayyy Carumba....I have no clue, and I love to decorate! I'd have to say...five gallons of gas and a match? I love the brick wall though,( the rustic look ) so if you can't torch it, go with a rust or brick color. ***
