Good Questions: What Color for Our Dining Area Walls?

AT:SF, My boyfriend just bought a place and is getting ready to work on it. What color(s) do you recommend for the walls? We're planning on putting up wallpaper on the back wall in the dining area (where that hideous mural is) with the Onda wallpaper design in Seafoam from Flavor Paper...

...We're not really sure what the full pattern of the wallpaper looks like, but I know it's not a full wall pattern. We have to keep in mind that the floor (I don't know if it's hardwood or laminate) is Oak, a more general brown oak, but not as reddish as the image...

...The tiling at the front door and next to the AC unit closet door will change to something else. The kitchen adjoins the dining area and so far, the furniture in there is all white. That will change since he will be putting a granite countertop and will be changing the doors of the cabinets to a different color also. The color for the countertops and cabinets door will depend on the wall color, whether or not the kitchen will be a different color from the dining/living area, not sure. The kitchen appliances will change as well, as he's chosen a dark silver metal matching appliance set.

We figured we have to decide on the color of walls, floor tiles, counter top, and cabinet doors depending on the wallpaper we want to put up. What do you suggest? We'd like something modern and youngish. We're both in our mid to late 20s and plan on getting sleek but comfy furniture. Thank you in advance!
