Help with my dining room.

I have a cottage style house. The foyer/laundry room is a reggata blue (dark nautical blue) on upper walls and white wainscott on bottom and a cupboard hiding washer/dryer and closet is 2 shades lighter. It is beautiful. Off that is the dining room with buttery tan bisque wall. My husband built a floor to ceiling cupboard for extra storage. I just dont know what color to paint the cupboard. Right now it is light sage color and tends to look blau (dull). Considered painting it the color of the foyer wall or a dark sage or an antique red. The dining room is open to the living room with large windows facing the small lake, with an oriental area rug with very deep red, beige, black, tans, and black on the edge and a tint of dark green. I got out of my comfort zone when I painted with dark colors and love it. Do you have any idea what color to paint that single cupboard which is seen when you are standing in the foyer at the front door. In other words when you walk into the house you are in the foyer looking straight thru the dining room and living room and see the windows with the lake beyound that. Hope this isn't confusing.

And what if you'd paint it white and sand the edges afterwards through to the sage? To give it a worn look?

It would really help if we could see some photos to give us an idea of the cupboard and its surroundings.
