Hi, I was wondering if anyone could give me some suggestions on what color of paint would go with black and white Marylin Monroe wallpaper. This wall paper would be the statement wall ;)

Pick your favourite colour but then make it super pale. Marilyn was such a girlie girl I would pick a soft pink and take it up onto the ceiling Benjamin Moore 2086-70 50's Pink or 2084-70 Gentle Blush. Use a Matte sheen finish which is part way between Flat and Egg shell.

Thanks for your comment :), I've never really liked the color pink. My favorite colors are burgundy, purple and turquoise, if I picked one of these and made it very light maybe that would work? I have a black leather sleigh bed so I would need a color that would go with this. I'm liking the turquoise idea, just not sure.

What about adding a transparent wash of turquoise over parts of the wallpaper too?

My daughter just recently painted her room red - Sherwin Williams Show Stopper with lots of white on the trim, windows, five doors and ceiling. The red is a deeper color, not quite maroon that is easy on the eye. She uses lots of white/black patterns elsewhere in the room and put a shaggy white rug on the oak floor. The effect is spectacular. I think this red would look good with your paper. If all the walls would be too much, consider using it on the largest wall and paint the rest to match the white color in the wallpaper.

Look to the old movie posters from her work. Also check out some of the dresses she wore to premieres or cars from the era! Plenty of great colors - pastels might be to "retro"

white furnitures + pink wall (any tone) + grey curtains.. although i want to paint the smallest wall or my door with black as a chalkboard. =)

my room is also decorated with Marilyn Monroe, but i try to follow some feng shui rules, to decide which wall should be clear, for example.

greetings from chile.

Pearl colored walls. Red accent pillow, like lipstick.
