What is this grey and white geometric wallpaper (photo)

We have moved into a house with this on the walls. Can anyone tell me what it is? I love it and it goes beautifully with our grey sofas. The paper is on one wall and the others are painted in chic shadow.

I need to buy curtains and cushions but can't decide what to go for. One of the curtains will be next to the wallpaper so would something with a pattern be too busy? It's not the lightest of rooms due to a conservatory so I want something bright - please give me some inspiration! I'm getting braver with colour and patterns bit not sure where to start looking. The floor is a medium brown laminate.

I go for plain in either the grey or the white/cream or perhaps a fine stripe of grey and white? Chunky stripes if you are feeling bold. This is from John Lewis.

I like that pattern wowfudge but I was hoping to add a splash of colour. Sorry, I should have said that in my original post.

Thanks Procrastinator, I love it! The previous owners has great taste, they had Orla Kiely too, which I'd never have chosen (or paid the price for!) but it looks amazing. This grey paper looks like it's good quality and expensive too so I'm hoping someone will recognise the design. I want to Google some ideas of how other people have used it in their rooms.

I've no idea what the wallpaper is, sorry sad

I would pair it with yellow though.

Maybe look on Pinterest for what other people have done with grey and white wallpaper? Even if it's not an identical pattern you might find some inspiration.

Okay - well it's neutral so anything you like for a shot of colour really. What colour is the furniture in the room? Try holding up a paint chart to it and seeing if anything stands out.

It is really lovely. It is screaming out for tomato red, deep orange, bright yellow and cobalt blue.

I think you need really bright warm colours to work with a grey - an acid yellow, hot pink or burnt orange to contrast and lift the look of the room. Keep everything else neutral or monochrome. This room's got yellow and it looks lovely with green accents too.

You could always go for a really simple window dressing - like a roller blind and then add some really bright wall art and accessories in an accent colour?

What's the style of the room? Lots of ideas here...

And don't be afraid of pattern clash - the more the merrier IMO!
