Hello, I've finally seen an example of what we might like in our living room but I'm having a hard time describing it, or finding something like it online.

It's the background wall in the first image in this listing for a sideboard. The colour is kind of a blue but not too in your face--almost a light slate but when I search for slate I just get straight up grey results, which isn't what I want.

The colour on the wall is like a cornflower

Stiffkey blue is an exact match for the sideboard, so much darker than the wall behind!
The Dulux denim drift is similar to the wall.

It is not stiffkey (that is much darker) I would call it wedge wood/mid blue. Cornflower is brighter.

It's like a powder blue.
