Curtains function in much the same way as a picture frame does for a picture. They set off what's within them --- in this case, the window --- and can change the look of the window area depending on the style of the curtains. The possibilities for blue-green curtains are many, and the effect that the curtains have in the room will depend greatly on the colour of walls they're paired with.

Pale Yellow

Colours like yellow, green and blue are associated with feelings of spring. Blue-green curtains in front of pale yellow walls help to create a springtime retreat. Push this decorative motif even further by looking for curtains that feature leaves of blue-green or green stripes. If you're decorating a bedroom and have big items like a canopy bed, feature the curtain material on the canopy bedding.

Lighter Shades

Sometimes the best solution can be more of the same. In colour psychology, blues and green are most often recommended if you're looking to create a room with a serene feeling. In this case, pairing walls that feature a lighter shade of blue-green will reinforce the feelings of well-being created by the blue-green curtains. This combination works well if you're creating a Zen bathroom retreat. The colours not only promote relaxation but also serve as visual reminders of water and the ocean, another serenity-builder.


Because of their neutrality, cream-coloured walls go with almost any colour of curtain, including blue-green curtains. Curtains that run on the darker side of the colour spectrum provide a vibrant contrast to the cream-coloured walls. This type of colouring is common in decorating styles including Japanese and Victorian. To enhance a look like this even further, look for accessories that have a bamboo print on them or go for a contrasting colour like Chinese red. Cream works well for modern minimalist styles. Set off the green-blue curtains and cream-coloured walls by filling the room with cream-coloured furniture and only a few accessories of a different colour.


Black walls have become the colour of choice for many bold-in-heart interior decorators. Black is dramatic and works well as a backdrop colour for blue-green curtains that fall on the turquoise or teal part of the spectrum. To bring out the maximum dramatic effect of the black/ blue-green combination, paint the walls with a semigloss black paint or put up black wallpaper with a paisley or striped pattern. Reinforce the colour combination by bringing in accessories featuring the blue-green colour. Throw blue-green polished cotton pillows on the couch or lay down a blue-green area rug.
