Suggestions please, for a bold but warm paint colour to go with this fabric.

Any range is fine, I’d probably get it colour matched by Dulux.

It’s going in my spare room (currently looking very unloved and overdue a revamp), probably as an accent colour on one wall rather than the full room. The fabric will be used for curtains at the French doors and a bedspread, so there will be a lot of it in the room.

I would go with the very pale pink of the flower at the very bottom ...reminds me of an f and b shade but can't remember which

I thought the pale pink flower too. A pale lilac might work if you like lilac. I don't. I don't like grey either.
I'd keep it neutral. Fabric is nice.

An inky blue like in the darkest bits of the central flower?

I like that fabric. You will get a lot of mileage out if it. Lots of complementing colours.

A darker dusky pink would go lovely or a plum colour. It would make the fabric stand out

Dodie are you Welsh? I would use the same turn of phrase 'go lovely' smile

Try dusted fondant by dulux. It's a lovely dusky pink similar to the bottom flower

Ooh, now - some very interesting ideas here! I had automatically thought of a bold green, something like F&B Churlish Green, or Lichen, so I am glad I asked, as there are definitely some suggestions I hadn't considered.

I love plum, but we already have quite a lot of plum elsewhere in the house so I'd prefer to avoid it. I also love dark, rich blues (we're about to paint our study in Dulux Sapphire Salute), but I think it's probably too dark for the spare room.

I initially thought that pink my look too sugary, but actually I really like F&B Pink Ground, that might work really well, as it has a lot of yellow in it. And while, like Mike, I'm not usually a lilac fan, Dusted Fondant has a lot of grey in it, so might work.

Time to get ordering some samples - thanks, everyone!
