Need Color Advice

Ok, I'm stumped.

I have a late-50's built rambler style house. It still has many of the original components.

I need to make the living more livable (translation: attractive) and where I'm stuck is the window frames/trim work.

All the trim is the original light wood color....what they used to call Blonde wood. It is very, very light, like a light beige color.

I would like to put blinds on the living room window, and I really like 2" wood blinds, but what shade?

Painted wood, like cream?
Painted wood, like a color that is in my room?
Wood that matches the window frame?
A wood tone that I really love?

I can give some room details if that would be helpful

Check out Retro Renovation - it's a fantastic website and blog that is devoted to Mid Century Modern (MidMod) homes and decor. You may find some inspiration there to help.
