Color of Crown Molding


I have a delima that I'm looking for advice. I want to add crown molding around the ceiling in the living room. All my trim work and baseboards are a dark wood stain. Should I keep the same color or would white work better. What are your thoughts. What would you choose?
Attached is a picture or the room.
Thanks for any insight. Color of Crown Molding-livingroom2.jpg

I'd match the wood but then, I'm really anal.

I agree with bradnailer, keep all the woodwork the same, stain it to match.

Wood trim generally all matches (baseboard, casings, built-in units, windows, crown molding, etc....)
