need help picking a neutral color to paint interior

My new home built in the 90's has great floor plan. Putting light oak wood floors into the living and formal dinning which are open to each other plus master bedroom. Tile going on the rest of the floor. Lining the work up currently but I need to go ahead and paint the main floor which is white with light oak trim. Two tall windows flank the gas fireplace letting in north sunlight and the dinning has windows across the north wall as well. Have no furniture for these two rooms yet so I have no idea for future colors and I always tend to go towards warmer colors so what shade of neutral color would be a smart neutral to work with up against the oak trim and future oak floors as well as the rest of the main floor?

Have you made your decision on the neutral color yet? I'd love an update.

You're probably wanting to try a new color, but really, white is still your best choice, partly because of the oak trim and partly because you don't know what other colors you will have in there. Have a look at Ben Moore Simply White. It's a nice, pure white and a little on the warm side but no yellow undertones. Another possibility might be a very pale grey, but its too risky if you don't know what colors the furniture will be. You can't go wrong with white!
