If you get a good amount of sunlight then go with color, if you live in a northern latitude with a lot of gray days then consider white.

I like to use hard working neutrals in the foyer and hallways and then allow the individual rooms to carry the color personality depending on their function. Color is highly personal, so pick something that speaks to your unique lifestyle and passions. Find inspiration in rugs, furnishings, or artwork and don't forget to reach beyond the windows to capture the landscape beyond. If you are not working with a designer (and even if I weren't one, I would say it is money WELL spent) grab some of the brochures available at any paint store to get some color stories. Just remember that these are merely well orchestrated photographs of rooms. You need to bring the colors home and put them on your walls and see them in the dark and light, on sunny and cloudy days, and in corners and big open spaces. Attached is a sample of a small home where we simply ran up the card with Sherwin Williams Craft Paper. This kept the small space uniform, but allowed us to play up different color accessories in each room.
Good luck!
