In my decorating work, I find a definite hesitancy to embrace the idea of solid colored curtain panels. People that "like color" have a hard time letting go of the idea of boldly painted walls, and color shy folks opt for solid white or patterned panels every time. However, for the color deprived, solid panels are the perfect way to make a large statement without painting the walls. In fact, white rooms with a limited range of solid hues often appear more vibrant and colorful than rooms with painted walls. For color-loving renters who can't paint their walls or for those that tend to want to redecorate often, solid curtains are perfect. For the biggest impact, use them in conjunction with a few other accents in the same hue spread throughout the room such as a few toss pillows, a throw, and a flower vase.
