Great guidelines from Farrow and Ball on color schemes: Warm grey tones such as Slipper Satin® No.2004, Lime White No.1, Off-White No.3 and Old White No.4 have a very sophisticated feel. They are traditional colours, but work well in contemporary situations too.
Slipper Satin No.2004. A very successful off-white for woodwork with strong colours or as a wall colour used with many of the other whites, both lighter and darker. http://www.farrow-ball.com/slipper-satin/colours//fcp-product/102004
