Would you please post the wall paint color? - I am also trying to pair blue and white porcelain with gray/blue dining room walls instead of a more traditional yellow or ivory backdrop. I have repainted twice and tried over a dozen samples and I still can't get the right shade. Please help!!

I am not sure of the color. I like to pull a color from either a piece of artwork, rug, or accessory to make sure it will coordinate.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

...or show them off on some shelves.
Lisa Frederick added this to So Your Style Is: Preppy
Style Secret: Blue and White ChinaBlue and white china — ginger jars, plates, pitchers — is a preppy mainstay. Whether it's Delft or Blue Willow, it's timeless enough to blend with virtually any palette and mix of furnishings. Updated twist: Instead of a traditional cluster of wall-hung plates or mass of jars on a mantel, arrange blue and white dishware in a more streamlined way. Display it in an orderly grid, as in this dining space, or group just a few pieces on a tabletop or shelf.More:Old-School Prep and Modern PrepGetting Kate and Andy Spade's Preppy Look
Paint or add wallpaper to the backs of shelves. This works for built-ins and china cabinets and will help your china and other objects stand out.More ideas for punching up shelving

A set of heirloom china gets visual backup from the dining chairs here. Color, again, is a great unifier that tells a story well.
