To Paint or Not To Paint Our Abundance of Wood Trim?

Good Questions

Q: We are proud first time homeowners. Our new house is beautiful, but is decked out with some serious wood trim. We want to paint some of the trim to give it an updated look, but don't know where to stop. What color paint should we choose, and what should we leave un-painted? (BTW — that is not our furniture, so please no comments!)
