I have painted my living room f&b off white and although I like it, it has come out a lot more green than I imagined and I am struggling to find colours to go with it (for curtains and cushions). We have a very simple oatmeal coloured rug and beige sofa. The f&b co-ordinating colours aren't that inspiring. Would love to hear if anyone else has used it and what with.

Grape/Wine? or Coral, if you prefer lighter, warmer tones?
I think you will be finding that the off white is cool whereas your oatmeal and beige are warm.
I think a stronger accent colour will bring the two together, you just have to find an accent colour that goes with both (essentially) pale cool green and warm beige. Personally I would pick a Wine shade as it is a classic, traditional colour (if you like F&B off white I guess there's a hint of classic about you) but that's only good if you actually like a Wine shade, of course smile If you also like dark wood furniture then Wine, but if you have oak or pine wood then Coral would be more sympathetic.

Thanks. I was thinking something like that but didn't no if it was totally out there! The other colour I am thinking about is some kind of sky blue but tricky to find the right shade. The rest of my house is very neutral. It might be that off white is just not the right colour!

I've just seen it combined with mizzle on the f&b inspiration site.

great idea agnes - a pale blue/grey.
