I got some little pots of historical paint colours, having checked out which wall colours were possible circa 1700. Stone colour was popular, as was a dark blue and a yellowish ochre, so I grabbed some examples of those and painted some swatches so I could look at some blue and white plates against the colours.
I like this dark blue, but it's a bit predictable with the blue and white.
I like this stone grey, too, but it's a little dull for this particular room. I want this room to be quite pretty :)

Here's some plates against the red wallpaper:
And here's the same plates against an earth-toned paper:
