Paint color to compliment Wallpaper

Janice742October 8, 2012

I chose this wallpaper for an accent wall in my office. My goal is to have a bright cheerful room - but nothing garish.

My trim is white - and there is picture frame moulding from the chair rail below - which is all white as well.

I'm having an antique desk painted - dark stain on the top and turquoise legs.

Leaning toward a light color for the walls - maybe in the creamy yellow family? I typically use BM paints.

The rest of my home is quite traditional, so this is my "fun" room.

I am no decorator( far from it) but I would lean toward the yellow

A very pale yellow-cream color, or a very pale turquoise would do the lights,.

Or, match that orange for some dramatic walls.
