BM Paint Suggestions to go with Blue and White Toile

LMM77June 14, 2011

I'm getting ready to redo a family room and I found a lovely blue and white toile fabric I would like to use for accent pillows on a light butter colored sofa and love seat. There is a butter colored wall that is shared with the hallway that comes into the family room that I will work with, but I'd like to change the color of all the other walls in the room since the butter wall is so close to the sofa fabric. I don't typically decorate with blues, I tend to prefer warmer color pallets so I am finding I need some help in choosing colors to go with this blue and white fabric. Any suggestions for wall color or do I need to stick with blue if I choose to use this fabric? I think I would rather stay away from blues for the wall so the blue toile would be more of an accent color. If any of you gals or guys have some suggestions for colors I would love to hear from you. Thanks a bunch!

Sage, grayed or even apple-type greens work wonderfully with a blue toile. Adding a green might be a nice way to round out the butter/blue color scheme.
