The Cornforth White looks stunning with your floor Louise. It just picks out the grain perfectly. I love it!

So Marypoppins I've picked the Borastapeter wild ferns that you linked on the OP's post as I loved the colours on it. Decided on Farrow & Ball James White paint. Hoping it will go. Just wondering about curtains to go with it now have you any recommendations?
Sorry louisybobs for jumping on this thread.
Think we all need a marypoppins in our lives

One of my regular clients once described me as a fairy Godmother that stops her making expensive mistakes. I didn't know whether to take it as a compliment or not!
I guess it would depend on what the rest of your decor is like. Do you have wood floors/carpet, what colour is your sofa etc.
My initial reaction would be to think you could go with something quite plain and neutral then add a bit more of a contrasting pattern with cushions.

So my DH is on his way to B&Q at the moment to pick up the James White paint. He has just called me to say they don't have it in so I've told him to get it made at the counter as I want it all painted by tomorrow
When i was in there earlier I did see some textured plain curtains in a similar colour to the greeny colour in the paper. They were on offer so I picked them up to see what they look like.
These are the ones...

diy/departments/kost...2681144_BQ.prd

They're actually for french/patio doors going into the conservatory not proper windows as our lounge is on the back of the bungalow and we had a conservatory put on it.

I know thats why I picked them up. If they don't look right it's not too much to lose if I have to buy more

We picked farrow-ball ammonite for the hall and kitchen cupboards open plan and moles breath for the tall units with the cornforth for the kitchen walls and it was MaryPoppins that helped me decide
