Good Questions: What Color to Paint My Walls?

Hi AT!
This is the second time I have a good question… you might remember me from this post. After reading through all the great options provided by the AT community, we decided to stick it out, deal with the wood, and move as soon as possible – and it paid off big time! We found a two bedroom house almost twice the square footage that actually has cheaper rent – and the option to paint our walls! However, I apparently can’t get away from wood. In the second bedroom, we have these huge wooden built-ins that take up an entire wall. The bedroom will be an office for my husband and sewing room for me. What color would look best with the built-ins? We have a desk that will go in that is black and white, but other than that, its a blank slate!
Thanks in advance,
