Should I Add Color with Curtains Instead of Paint?

Good Questions

Q: I rent a great apartment with 10 foot ceilings and lots of tall windows. My walls are apartment white, and I really want to add color to my living room. I plan on living here for at least 3 more years, but I am hesitant to invest the time and money involved with painting in a rental. Instead, I thought about adding color via curtains, since I have four windows in my living room. 

Would adding curtains look okay, or would painting be worth the investment? And what would be a good color to bring into the room? Thank you so much!
