Paint colours for the walls in an oak frame living room with white ceiling?

Our living room was previously decorated in 'earthy' colours - terracotta walls, sisal carpet and a burgandy wood stain on the plank ceiling. The ceiling was very light absorbing, so we decided to paint it white. The room is now much brighter but the other colours look all wrong.
Has anyone got any good ideas for a new colour scheme?

Fresh greens go well with oak and white.

Dusted moss from dulux goes well with wood. It might go with the sisal too, with some other fresh green accents would look great.

Thanks for the ideas, I had started looking at olive green, but the dusted moss looks more subtle.
