Dd wants this wallpaper in her room and I've tried some testers but aren't sure about any of them
We've tried lemon to match the flowers but I'm not sure, then we've tried blue but it looks quite cold.
The look she's going for is vintage, romantic, girls. And we've got vintage ivory furniture. Can you help choose s a color to paint the other three walls.
This is what we've tried so far

Pretty wallpaper smile Could you not just paper the whole room in it?

What about green?

I would use a soft ivory to make the wallpaper standout

What about a very light grey with a blue tone.

I thought as the wallpaper is busy looking the whole room in it my be a bit too cluttered looking, I might be wrong though.
I'll try the ivory, green and grey testers For starters.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Hmm.. I'm looking at the farrow and ball website for paint colors but I'm rubbish at trying to in visage colors.
Can anyone who uses f&b tell me what colors they think will match the abbé wallpaper.
Thank you again.

What about lime white or pointing if you want something less cream in colour

What about the cerise colour way of the Summer Palace wallpaper and then match the other walls to the neutral background?
I note that the website recommends Pale Duck Egg as a complementary paint to the colourway you have chosen
