Totally agree with shadowfax--dark brown, like the darkest wood color. I hope your furnishings are black and white, and grey perhaps. Otherwise you will be on color overload.

I would match the trim to one of the darker floor boards.

You want a warm white. If you don't know the difference between warm and cool, go to Sherwin Williams and see a color chart of warm neutrals. I'm thinking Navaho white is one of the choices.

So, seeing that I'm having panic attacks over this (Whyyyyy) Here's the conundrum; what colour trim. The floor is making this very painful; if it was all blonde maple i'd just go with something super bold, but I don't want to fight with the floor and wall colours.

I greatly dislike solid creams and beiges, by the way.

There was some talk of a neutral colour...
Ouch, that room hurts my eyes. The red clashes big time with the floor. The floor is beautiful. Honestly, you'll like the room better repainted a cooler color. Paint the trim the same for the entire house. If the trim in the rest of the house is white, stick with white. Or change all the trim to a neutral.

Showcase the floor. The walls can be anything. Then bring in red furniture if red is your color. If you absolutely must have that red on your walls, then paint out all but one red accent wall. Honestly, the red is wrong for an entire room. No one will ever feel comfortable in there.

That floor is gorgeous. It is a shame the wall color competes for attention.

I agree.
This is why I always say to paint the trim the same color as the walls.
This trim is nothing special, as most trims are, they do not need to be a focal point, they are really there to edge off the walls, and to me, again like I always say, paint it the same color as the wall to make it fade into the sunset.
There is no need to call attention to it.

This, and continue with it around the windows and replace the white outlets as well. Too much going on there as is.
