Which Red Paint Color Will Look Best With Wood Trim?

Good Questions

Q: My family is renovating our old Philadelphia house, from top to bottom. There's beautiful woodwork and I would like to paint the living room red, which is very bold, but I think fits the character of the house. The trim and ceiling would remain white. The wall color has to be a certain bright shade of red because the woodwork is slightly yellowish. Any advice for the color? Do you think this will turn out nice? Any suggestions for how to make the room work? The furniture that will go in that room is a dark leather sofa, an entertainment center, bookshelves and our pool table (which has a dark red felt).
