white is the only wrong choice. wood has light "within" in, even if/when it's veneer, and contrast overwhelms it. american bungalow magazine used to regularly feature before and after home makeover pictures. white was always the wrong starting point. even off-whites are pretty awful.
the deep green is not the worst idea ... but the white ceiling is a no-no to go with it. contrast is not kind to wood.
surround wood moldings, windows, etc. with darker colors and you will get a lighter look. this is arts & crafts home 101. go to sherwin williams, get the arts & crafts palette, pick some red-orange, squash, teal, whatever, and do some such earthy color for the walls with a lighter but not white ceiling and (the computer is not going to show this) the wood will "glow." according to theory. then get wood stickley furniture, some mica-shade lamps, lots of brass doo-dads and lamps, etc.etc. and voila you are mission living in small intimate warm spaces.
don't take my word for it ... do some research ... i am not making this stuff up. your crappy honey-brown molding wants anything but white or off-white or bright neutral on the walls. you can do that white cube museum look in new construction, with its acres of drywall and shitty little moldings that you paint, but it's never going to look good in with significant wood moldings and windows
