Curtains for Large Window: Magnolia Walls + Light Blue Feature Wall

    HI All;

    I am looking for some help :confused: from those with a good sense of colour and fabrics.

    I have a large room 5m x 5m of which one wall is mainly glass (double doors + side windows) it is painted with magnolia on three walls with a light blue feature wall (chimney breast) with a brilliant white vaulted high ceiling. Oak floor.

    Main furniture is dark-brown/black leather 3 piece suite.

    I need get new curtains for the window/double-door side of the room.

    Previous curtains have never really suited the room :o, I would like to get it right this time :), any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance :-)

    Hi do you need two sets of curtains or one big pair?
    What are the measurements of the openings?

    Colour wise duck egg is very popular at the moment.. blues, golds, browns & creams are lovely together.

    I think these curtains would be lovely (much nicer in reality)

    The curtains need to cover 90" x 144".

    Last time we did that with two pairs of 90" x 90" curtains.

    I think that the HC ones are not too bad:D, but herself hated them :rolleyes:

    But then I am no expert.

    Any other suggestions
