Living Room Paneling Paint Color Advice?

Our house is over 200 years old. At some point, someone put wood paneling in the living room. Replacing it is out of the question. It is way too much money and work. I'm going to paint it, but I can't decide what color. The wood floors are a honey oak shade, the furniture is beige, the ceiling and trim are off white (which will stay the same), and I have lots off red accents, such as pillows, throws, and valances. Any suggestions? I'm tired of all the brown/wood colors. Thanks.

I've used TSP on wood paneling and follow direction on box. Then primed the walls twice over with Kilz before painting. This helps keep the color of wood from bleeding into the painted surface. For the right color combo, I think I'd go with one wall of the room with deep red and paint the other walls with beige or cream much lighter than the trim work.
