Good Questions: Color Scheme Dilemma — Help!

Hi, I recently painted my bedroom wall with what I thought was a light light green. Turns out there is a strong yellow tint to the wall color, which is making me reconsider my color scheme for the room. I'm in the market for curtain, but now I don't know what color to buy anymore...

I was originally going to buy sage green (or some version of a foresty green) but now I fear the green/yellow tint of the walls will make the sage look dirty (since sage is usually tinted gray). A friend suggested I use the opposite color on the colorwheel, and go for plum or dark purple curtains, but I think that might be too much. Any thoughts on my curtain dilemma? Any is appreciated.

We agree with your friend — going opposite with a rich purple / gray would neutralize the yellow-green ambiguity. If bold, deep color makes you nervous, consider patterned curtains to break up the color density.
