Paint colour to match pine furniture

We are in the process of finishing our basement and need to choose a paint colour. The room is 28' x 16' and will be used largely as a tv/family room. Our furniture is light coloured natural pine. I would appreciate any ideas on paint colours that tone in with the pine without making it too dark for a basement room with no natural light.Thanks!

I think a darker grey wall color would go well with pine furnitures.  Sometimes using an intense color adds character to a room without making it darker.ImageImage

Hi, lmoran!

Have you considered going with a lighter shade/neutral paint colour?

In these two rooms soft white works well with the pine:
