We chose a paint colour that looks white in most lights, but blue in shadow. This is how it looks against the dark trim and tile floor.
This shows how it looks blue against true whites. The cornice and ceiling are white, and we painted the cupboard doors white too.

Same paint, facing the opposite direction. It looks much whiter next to the greenish wardrobe doors.

The guest bedroom floors.
The wardrobe doors look much nicer now they aren't blue. Also, in this room we painted the dark wood trim white to see how it would look. Verdict: we won't bother in the other rooms.
Bedroom 3: before
Bedroom 3: after. I plan to refinish the desk, and we'll probably get rid of the lumpy blue futon and the scary curtains.
Scary curtains replaced with dark blue ones. Couch cover removed. Floors replaced.
I don't have a before picture of the wash house. But trust me, it now looks less yellow.

The entry way, before.
The door looks much better against white walls. (No wide shot yet, since the floor needs cleaning!)
The bathroom - this was already white, so we didn't have to paint. But we hung a fern, and installed a kitten.
