What colour wall would go with this sofa?

Similar sofa to this, same colour according to the DFS website although mine looks bluer in real life. I'm sick of magnolia walls but I really don't know what other colour to use and I'm rubbish at this kind of thing. It's a rectangular shaped living room with a small window at each end so it can be quite dark at times.

A yellow colour would work (not a BRIGHT yellow) grin, more of a chalk yellow, especially if it can be a dark room.

One of the timeless paints (Homebase own) or Farrow and Ball type yellows and lamps.

I think I would go for white to keep it light.

We have a chair in that fabric, with Dulux Egyptian Cotton walls. We used to have yellow (Farrow & Ball Straw), but the Egyptian Cotton looks much better.

Yes I also think Egyptian cotton or a similar pale brownish beige would be nice. Smarter than magnolia.

I actually have that sofa(bed) with those cushions. I haven't redecorated so it has what was there, which is a maroon wall behind it, and pale yellow on the other three. There are so many colours in those cushions, that if you get those too, you'll have lots of options.
