It's hard to say about the picture.....but it looks to be a very light tan or clay color.....there is a paint color called Alpaca that looks like this...got a paint chip from Lowe's I think that is close...also Sesame......

Those drapes have some luminescence to them which broadens the color choices.....any neutral...but stay away from the dreaded apartment/condo "off-white"

How about trying a shade of grey....grey is the new cream these days...just be careful b/c some greys are more blue or lavender or green....

but I would try a light grey with taupe undertones.

How about a lighter shade of the taupe in the curtain? I would not go with white.
