Window treatments provide light control, isolation, colour and pattern in a room. When used accordingly, they can even change the room's proportions. Large windows, especially found in sunrooms, are common in many modern homes. The balance and function between the overall room design and light control can be found in the extensive selection of window treatments available. Mustard is a playful colour that can be tamed down or pumped up, depending on personal taste and style. Know your curtain options to figure out what will fit best in your home. Window treatment options that can polish off a room by adding colour and texture include curtain panels, Roman shades and valances.

Teal

The colour of mustard does not go unnoticed, and when it is combined with teal, the room will be sure to demand attention. These two colours together create a invigorating yet sombre tone, as well as an earthy feel in the space. Much inspiration can be taken from this avant-garde and antique colour scheme for any room in the home. Incorporate the colour teal in rugs, pillows and other accessories to create colour balance throughout the design.

Simple Sophistication

Mustard walls might be frightening to some, but mustard can be crisp and clean when paired with fresh airy curtains. Simple, classic white curtains can do the trick for refining a mustard-coloured room. Soft white curtains will not prevent much light from coming in. Look for UV protective curtains and pair with UV protective blinds or blackout lights, which are especially popular for bedrooms. Mix and match patterns in pillows and fabrics that incorporate white and mustard.

Play With Pattern

Have fun and play with fabric textures, patterns and colours, take some risks to get creative. You might just impress yourself, and others who share your home. Use floral prints to bring the organic beauty of nature indoors; they go well in any room, especially sunrooms. The warmth of the yellow mustard shade pairs great with red and white floral curtains; soothe the warmth with some cooler shades of blue. Try a mustard-on-mustard colour scheme and incorporate different patterns and textures. Patterns often incorporate small amounts of other colours, balancing the mustard scheme. Mix and match stripes and floral patterns for additional dimension of texture.
