Best Paint Colors for Room in Log House?

Good Questions

Q: What colors are best in rooms with lots of log walls? I have a white wall in my entryway that I'd love to paint an interesting color, but the orange in the wood is throwing me off. I can't find many examples of wood-filled homes with colors that suit them. What sort of green or blue could I use to contrast with the orangey-brown? What should I avoid? The wall in question is on the right-hand side of my photos (well, an edge of it is). I'm leaning towards green, but so many shades either pull the yellow out of the wood or are just a bit dull, truth be told. Thank you!
