Hi, we are ordering the above wallpaper for the alcoves in our living room and not sure what paint to go with, the carpet and sofas will be charcoal. The background of the wallpaper looks quite cream and I want something to keep the room light with the floor and sofas being quite dark.
Thanks Smile

If it's light enough I would be tempted to take a piece of the wallpaper to one of those places where they zap things and match the colour and paint the other walls to match the background . Alternatively a find a shade darker or lighter but in the same tone of cream.

Lovely paper - I second poppy's idea of colour matching the cream. (I actually tend to always colour match - ie find a fabric/picture/something I like an match to that not that you would know by the number of colour charts I have )
