White is good. It never fades, so when you touch up paintwork, it doesn't show. It looks fresh and bright. If you want colour, offset with rich wood furniture, bright pillows, glass vases in bright colours...

Don't paint a small room in a saturated color. It closes the space in and can feel encroaching.
