Hi. The ceiling is litchfield gray and crown is white dove which i wont change. The walls are davenport tan (i really wanted a this type of darker shade in here) which look ok against the ceiling and white painted furniture but looks bland and muddy against the antique furniture. Can anyone suggest another color? My pics are purposely ugly looking for your viewing. Lol. Rest of house is in shades from the white dive swatch and willow creek. Thanks for any help.

I would use a darker grey than your ceiling. Put touches of black around such as picture frames, curtain rods, etc.

If you are wanting to show off the woods of your furniture, always use green and any green will work. All woods and all greens work together.
