My favorite color combination is dark blue with grays, bluegrays and brown. Maybe a dove gray or a bluegray. In my old house, I had white walls, dark blue carpet and curtains were a oriental print with grays, blues and browns and furnigure was light brown upholstery. Hope this helps.

Just about anything LIGHTER, depending on the style of your house. Just don't paint dark blue - it will make your house look really dark and somber.

Light gray, cream, taupe, even a white with a blue undertone, would work.
More importantly, would be what you do regarding drapes and furniture.

I'd use a modern combo like light tan with the dark blue carpeting. Use bright zinging apple green for the accents.

Perhaps a beautiful light yellow? That's a lovely contrast. Then dark blue and white striped or patterned cushion covers and a white (or white background) area rug. Paler blue drapes with white sheers and dark blue and yellow valances might be pretty with this. Good luck, and thank you for the opportunity to indulge my "inner decorator"!

I think a light beige on all walls and a cream color on one then you can accent the room with different shades of blue be sure to use some blues from the carpet some green plants I think once you apply the paint you will know exactly how to accent I have given you some hints good luck and have fun.

I would use a light grey for a masculine, modern look.

I love the colors of yellow and blue. You don't say what color blue you have, but I think yellow, not school bus yellow, in a soft and buttery shade would be similar to what letageraldine suggested.
