I don't believe there are best colors. You need to think about the colors you love and what you already have in your home and accent those colors. I love different woods and wood stains. you get color but can still see the grain. You can also pull from a blanket or bedding or curtains and paint the piece to match. I hope this helps. Let me know if you need more help.
