If you are someone who goes the whole hog then you will appreciate this combination - the bold and the beautiful!
I think this could work as an accent area, that is, on a wall or small area of the room - behind shelves possibly. There's a certain shabby chic feel to it and this is easy to achieve. Be careful with the pattern as you wouldn't want it to overwhelm everything or make a small dark space even more so.
A beautifully simple floral arrangement works and you could use pale yellow or white or red.
