We went with Sherwin Williams "Compatible Cream" for our basement. It's pale yellow/tan. It worked wonders on livening up the space without being too colorful. MUCH, much more attractive than white would have been.

Do NOT underestimate the hassles posed by scribbles on the walls. Crayons and the like make for real problems getting subsequent layers of paint to stick, or even hide them from bleeding through later.
