Question by maniacal_tulips: What color should my walls be with a dark blue rug?

I’m moving into a room with a dark blue rug and I want to paint the walls. It’s pretty much a straight dark blue with no other hints of color. It’s a dining room being converted into a bedroom, so it’s about twice the size of a normal bedroom. I’m male and my furniture and wall hangings are of an old european theme (dark wood, tapestries, old maps etc. I want to convey a masculine, yet warm and inviting feel to the room. Since the carpet color doesn’t afford me many painting options, I wanted to see what you thought.

I have a color in mind, but I wanted to see what other people thought because perhaps there is something I haven’t thought of myself. Thanks for your input.
