Color Schemes

Hey yall,
I have pine floors in a room, and I built an interior deck(for a babies room) I put bead-board on the wall, and I need to paint the bead board, base, panel cap, and hand rail. we are thinking some kinda light green, with off-white trim, and leaving the pine natural, any suggestions?
Real nice guys

Re: Color Schemes

A few years ago I built a game room (my own house)

Upper walls (sheetrock) are dark green (like pool table felt)
Lower walls (beadboard) had the paint store use the same tint from the paint in a clear stain.

The beadboard looks great. It's a lighter shade except at knots where the greens match.

Base, floor, window sills, beadboard cap are dark walnut

Ceiling is natural cork.
