Decorating & Furniture/matching wall color to furniture

i am thinking of buying this rust colored furniture set but am
not sure what wall color would match it. i originally wanted
to paint my walls a yellow/orange type of color, kind of
wanted a mediterranean feel, but don't think that will match
anymore... or will it? or is there a better choice? thanks!

Hi Sarah, pick a wall colour that is about 3-4 shades lighter than the fabric on your furniture.  If you wanted to bring in the yellow/orange colour, do it through your accessories.  
I also offer an 'Ask the Decorator' service on my website. I would be happy to be of further assistance to you if needed.
Thank you, for your time.
