Saffron yellow and an intense blue would work well and do also remember that patterns and fabrics are often seen in French country house design, so you could work in a bit of extra warm and charm into your bistro environment by using some appropriate patterns and fabrics.
If you are trying to evoke memories of France to reinforce the bistro feeling, then look around for some paintings that depict scenes of French country life or maybe an example of a Paris street scene or perhaps you might like to use an impressionist painting as the focal point on the wall.
Work on transforming your dining room into a classic French bistro and your home will soon be filled with the sound of constant chatter and enjoyment as people instantly relax in such pleasant and informal surroundings.
