NY Good Questions: Paint Color To Compliment My Furniture?

Pin it button big

Dear AT,

So I'm moving to a new place and decided to go clean, bright white for most of my living room furniture.

The living room is in an open space shared with the kitchen.

The floors are darker hardwood but the cabinets are a light oak color...

I'm wondering now, with my white furniture, what a good color of paint would be to compliment the furniture (picture attached)?

I'd like a more clean, modern look, and to that end thought of a lighter blue color or white (though I'm not sure how to pull off white paint and make it look not cheap).

Any suggestions are welcomed, though.

Thanks! Neema
