Someone else suggested this and I was surprise but it actually seems to go together well, light green with a dark red/maroon/burgundy.

I'd try using a tool on the sherwin williams website. It is called the color visualizer. You can match color and they display on the walls and trim in a room you select.

Green and oranges go well. Green and expresso brown also looks good. Since it light green you can try dark red too.

I just painted my LR/DR a light green color. I have lots of brown furniture (wood tables, e.t. center, sofa, couch, buffet table, hardwood floors) and it looks really calm. I wanted to be able to add other colors too so I got accent pillows for the couches with deep reds, small amounts of blue, green, yellow, etc. Now I was able to hang up deep red curtains and they pull from the throw pillows. I could also add colorful runners on the floor too as long as they can pull color from the pillows or curtains. I think it turned out well.

I seconded retro! coffee brown is good combined with any light colors or pastel colors.

I think the turquoise color would look awesome!! Poka-dots look really cool to. You could have a neon-green backround with neon blue, pink, and purple poka-dots. Silver and orange would be good too. You could try yellow for a lemony lime look. I would say definatly go with neon colors.

espresso, java, butter
I would go with Java or espresso colors for the furniture and butter or cream color for the accents.

another black and red person here. honestly, if light green really isn't your style (as it isn't mine), if it were me, I'd just suck it up and paint the room. It's much easier to decorate to your liking if you're starting with a canvas that agrees with you ;-) a nice silver grey would be the perfect start of a red and black room (and I'm not just saying that becuase that's my livingroom heheheh.)

but if you REALLY detest painting, or don't have a free weekend, I would stick with wenge (super-dark brown wood). That color furniture has a miraculous way of neutralizing things that need to be de-emphasized.

I think that light green goes with anything. But may be I would choose red.
