What colour should I paint my walls?

In my living room I have an olive green sofa and chairs, pine doors and a light wood floor.

I can't afford any new furniture - the existing stuff is second hand and will have to do for a few years yet.

The walls are currently the original bog standard magnolia. What would look nice?

We also have an olive sofa (grey chairs) pine floor and door, and the walls are F & B Clunch. It is lovely - though maybe not very different from magnolia, sorry.

we have a f& b "hardwick white" handpainted kitchen with a light wood floor, and the walls are painted in stone white from crown with f & b "pointing" skirting and architrave
I have added a couple of red accents ie cushions,etc

Exactly iloveshops I LIKE magnolia and white 'cos you can add yr own colours and paintings etc. and change them when you want to.

Thanks. I think I will go for a slightly different shade - this magnolia looks a bit too yellow, and I don't like it against the green.
