What would be wall color, paint on door ( combination)? - I have dark type of wood on the floor in the condo-apartment, which I need to paint. I like light colors, my husband like yellow. I don't want to put yellow on the wall. This combination works very well.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Play with contrasts in color and texture: In this prewar Greenwich Village apartment, Gambrel went for a sophisticated European look. He achieved this through stark contrasts. The apartment entry shows this off beautifully — warm yellow curtains stand out against white, black and gray surfaces, and the lacquered wood floor is amplified by the matte paint on the walls and doors.Tip: Understated European elegance is evident in the door’s color palette, which was painted in three shades of gray after a storefront seen in Paris. To further accentuate the entryway’s architectural elements, he applied thin strips of black paint to the wood paneling.

3. Add trim. If you live in a "plain white box" with no decorative moldings, consider adding a bit of interest with DIY add-ons from the hardware store. Dress up the front door, embellish plain columns or add crown moldings to the living room. Any of these options will add a sense of history to a newer home or flat.
