HELP! What color should an interior door be painted?

We have pine wood trim throughout our house. Most of our walls are some sort of a neutral color. The ceiling is a standard ceiling white. What color should all of the interior doors be painted? The wall color? Ceiling color? An accent color? HELP!!

Usually the trim and the color of the doors are the same. If you can't stain the doors to match the existing trim, you may look into painting the base boards, door jams, and doors all the same shade of white. It looks really good and modern with neutral color walls. I suggest using a semi gloss, when at your local paint store ask for trim paint, it may cost a little more but it is more durable. Now having said that remember, it is your house and your the one that has to look at it everyday. So it is really up to you.
