Paint Color

Hi All!

I'm having difficulty picking out some colors. I'm moving into an apartment and the carpet is a light brown color (typical apartment carpet).

My couch is a dark chocolate color. I like "earth tone" colors so I'm thinking of maybe a mossy green type color. But I'm "concerned" about the trim/doors. I'm wondering if painting them the same shade of green (or even a slightly different shade) will be too much. But I don't think that white would work too well with earth tones.

I've thought about painting them brown--maybe a shade halfway between the carpet and the couch. Or maybe even the same dark chocolate as the couch.

Of course, I'm not asking anyone to decide for me--just looking for ideas. Who knows--maybe YOU can suggest something completely different that I'll like even more?
