  • Off white or brown

  • Anything in the cream family - off white, beige, keep it lighter though, nothing too dark. Even a pale yellow would really off-set it. Gold or silver, if you like showy. What other colors do you have in your furniture/the room? Pick out something that's already there and match it - a stripe in a pillow, a flower, etc.

  • Sounds like a pretty color and that you're adventurous! Good for you! You don't say what room this is, so I'm not sure if it's more formal or more casual. If it's formal, what about a shimmery gold or silvery color? If it's more casual, I like a pretty yellow with plum. You can look at the color wheel and pick one color on the opposite side from plum, or pick the two colors next to plum, or 2 colors in a triad shape (green and yellow/orange, although I think this is my least favorite). Tell us which one you decide.

  • I think crisp white Battenburg lace or crochet panels an/or valance on a decorative rod would look lovely!

    This is my favorite site for Curtain ideas!

    They'll send you free swatches too!
