    my fiancee and i recently bought new furniture and flooring for my place, but we're having a bitch of a time finding appropriate wall coloring to go along with it all. the furniture consists of: a white leather sectional, a white ottoman, and two light blue chairs, and a low profile coffee table. our flooring is very dark brown/espresso laminate.

    here's the sectional, ours will be in white leather. and here are the chairs (ours are in light blue leather)

    and finally, here's our coffee table

    we like very simple, clean looking stuff. we thought gray would be a good color for our walls, but it doesn't have any life. we tried light blue, but it looks like a baby's nursery. i'd like to try a dark brown, but my fiancee says no because it may be too much with the dark brown floors.

    we're pretty much at an impasse. i'm hoping i can get some suggestions from this board to help guide us in teh right direction.

    magazines and books all show dark flooring and white walls (which is what i've been wanting since we visited cabo last summer - we both loved the simplicity of rich/dark wood and crisp white) unfortunately, the gf is resistant to white because it's too boring :mad:
