I have a vaulted ceiling in the living room, the paint trim is Linen White by Benjamin Moore, what would be a good color for the walls that would match the the Linen White?

Gosh, I think almost any color would be a good choice. Here are some photos with Linen white trim.

Do you have area rugs or upholstery that you are attempting to match?

no, not at this point. I don't want the color to be too dark but want a rich warm tone.

Sorry, I see I forgot to include the link. Quite a few of these rooms use the Linen White for trim. Maybe you'll find a wall color on these that appeals to you. Since there are so many paint colors you might be better picking an area rug or piece of art first & match a light, warm color of area rug/art to paint. Here's the link I meant to include http://www.houzz.com/linen-white-trim

Wall paint looks different in rooms b/c of lighting (natural/artificial). This is an almost fool proof way to find a perfect wall paint. Pick a chip you like and then buy small amt. paint and paint foam board. Many here like Benjamin Williams. Here's a tutorial. Let me know how you're doing! http://www.lindaholtinteriors.com/2011/07/testing-wall-color-101/

Linen White is a beautiful Trim Color and would look beautiful with a Brandon Beige for Walls, and Natural Wicker on the Ceiling

Thank you so much for your advice, the Brandon Beige is a great color with the Linen White.
