My favorite color combination is dark blue with grays, bluegrays and brown. Maybe a dove gray or a bluegray. In my old house, I had white walls, dark blue carpet and curtains were a oriental print with grays, blues and browns and furnigure was light brown upholstery. Hope this helps.

Just about anything LIGHTER, depending on the style of your house. Just don't paint dark blue - it will make your house look really dark and somber.

Light gray, cream, taupe, even a white with a blue undertone, would work.

More importantly, would be what you do regarding drapes and furniture.

I'd use a modern combo like light tan with the dark blue carpeting. Use bright zinging apple green for the accents.

Perhaps a beautiful light yellow? That's a lovely contrast. Then dark blue and white striped or patterned cushion covers and a white (or white background) area rug. Paler blue drapes with white sheers and dark blue and yellow valances might be pretty with this. Good luck, and thank you for the opportunity to indulge my "inner decorator"!

when i moved into my place the living room had yellow walls with a deep blue carpet.. don't do it; it looked terrible. i ended up painting it a cool blue/lilac/greyish type colour which looks really good (especially seeing as my sofa is burgandy red)
