Nude curtains for white living room - Beautiful Homes


White, considered a classic when it comes to interior design colours, may seem like a vanilla choice, but is far from being boring. It is essentially an embodiment of versatility. While other colours may carry certain restrictions, white offers more flexibility. It is easily adaptable to different decor themes, both complementing and contrasting, including innovative curtain designs. Whether it’s a pair of plush designer curtains, chic prints, or bold colours, white welcomes all.


A creative addition through an elegant pair of curtains can potentially transform the mood of your living room. It’s subtle yet powerful enough to make a statement. With the plethora of options available out there, you’ll be spoilt for choice.


Here are some living room curtain ideas you’ll want to bookmark ASAP –

Beige, Please

If you want to add a bit of zing to your living room, yet retain the sophisticated look of a neutral colour palette, beige is the way to go. Naturally warm and not at all overpowering, beige is a popular choice in curtains. The softness and warmth of the shade accents the colour scheme of the room while adding a sense of calm to the space. An ideal choice for those who have a thing for natural tones and monochrome spaces, yet wish to make a statement.

Shades Of Grey

Globally embraced as the colour of minimalism, grey is a grey-t way of lending a sleek, modern vibe to your white living room. While considering the classic black and white colour scheme in interiors is often associated with contemporary decor styles, the combination of grey and white is a close second. Consider curtain designs in solid grey or embellished with artistic, minimalistic prints and you’ve got yourself a pinterest-able living room! 

A Bit Of Stone Mauve

For a clean, refined living room decor, interspersed with slightly rustic as well as contemporary artefacts, stone mauve makes for a stunning colour choice. A pair of stone mauve curtains not only introduces a subtle warmth to your white living room, but also ups the elegance of the decor. One of the more muted tones of the shade card, it leans slightly towards earthy vibes, which means it brings a certain tranquility to the space. When combined with the sleek white of the living room, a backdrop of stone mauve in your curtains comes as a pleasant change to eye. The best part? It sort of maintains the balance of the colour palette you intended without making it look dull.

All Sheer Long

Give a little bit of a refreshing twist to a tropical white living room design with a pair of white, transparent sheer curtains. Not only does it amplify the aesthetics of the decor but it can also be paired with darker, solid material curtains for days when you want to keep excess sunlight away. It also subtly highlights the beautiful vibrant shades and prints that make this living room design so very contemporary.

Blue-ming Elegance

Having an instantly relaxing and calming effect on the nerves, blue makes for a lovely addition to the colour palette of your space. It is also a smart way of adding a pop of colour to your white living room. We love how the shade of orange is used to complement all of the blues in this space. Whether you wish to go for a tropical decor or a minimal one, blue curtains is an aesthete and unique choice.

La Vie En Rose

For those who are not ready for the boldness of red in interiors, its mellowed down yet equally powerful tint comes to the rescue – rose.


Emanating romance, playfulness, warmth, and peace, curtain designs in pink are also a great way of adding a touch of luxury to your white living room. Notice how the warmth of the curtains enhance the vintage velvet decor theme of this space? The accenting metal gold of the furniture subtly amplifies the spark, ensuring that the primary colour palette of white remains untouched.

Teal Drapes

A fun way to add that oomph factor to your white living room is by throwing in a pair of dual-toned curtains, preferably two slightly contrasting shades. We’ve chosen an aqua colour palette supported by grey and white for this industrial living room. Representing nature, nourishment, and healing, a pair of teal curtains will not disappoint you. A great complement to any houseplants you may have in your living room, this mesmerising combination of green and blue balances the brightness of white with its inherent breeziness. While forest green may be amongst the first shades that come to mind, consider going with softer tones like teal.

All-white Is Alright, Too!

As tempting as it seems, designing a neutral minimalist living room that excites without using vibrant hues is something of a challenge. This is where a pair of classic white curtains comes in to save the day. In combination with the grey and wood in the furniture, white curtains give the room a layered effect, which helps you maintain the colour palette without making it look monotonous.

Select the right shades and you’ve got yourself a refined, neutral living space that is far from boring.

Nude A Big Deal

Fancy natural tones and a semi-jungle vibe for interiors? A pair of nude curtains will work wonders for you! Innately earthy, calming, and unobtrusive, nude curtains work well to jazz up the appeal of your white living room. A beautiful play of contrasts, nude and white is a combination that never fails. This pair of sandy-nude curtains brings warmth to the living space, and can be coupled with metallic touches as well as wooden furniture to narrate a refreshing story. Welcome a bit of quietude and peace into your room with accenting nudes in the palette.

It Was Called Yellow

A colour often seen as a stimulator of cognitive abilities, intelligence, and conversations, yellow in your curtain design makes for a refreshing addition to your all-white living room. Before you ask – no, it will not make your decor look too loud, since it consists of a relatively small part of the decor. Picking out the right shade is key here, depending on the kind of decor mood you’re trying to establish. Yellow curtains also make for a great addition to bohemian-inspired spaces, just like this one.
