Paint Color

Looking for suggestions of exact paint colors that would work in this room. Everything in room will be gone except clock on wall. The closet wall was redone with the drywall, new closet door and baseboard when we had stairs behind closet redone. My husband is remodeling most of the house himself and has not done any more in this room. It was my daughters room, but we finally got a room upstairs done for her. This will now be the den.
The paneling is staying since my husband will probably never get to remodeling this room, so for now I want to paint all the walls and decorate to make it look somewhat better. As I said, everything in the room will be gone, except the clock on the wall and accessories in last photo. Most furniture will be medium stained wood with dark blue couch, along with clock on the wall and other accessories that will go with any color. Our style is rustic. The third photo is looking in from LR(still have to redo the permachink between logs on LR walls-it will be pure white)

Looking at Sherwin Williams paint colors, maybe Behr. I am really bad at being able to tell undertone of a color on paint chip since it looks different on every wall In the room. I've painted other rooms before thinking it would be one color, then was completely different on the wall. I've already gotten a ton of paint chips and nothing looks right with the oak door and trim and white trim on other walls.

Looking for suggestions on exact paint colors to try so I can narrow it down to just a couple colors to get samples of. Thanks!

It's hard to pick colors for someone else. I'd suggest taking your pic to a paint store and let them use their software to insert their colors into the pic. There are also some online versions of that software.

I've looked at lots of different colors on the paint visualizers putting different colors on photo of the room on different websites, and the colors are completely different on the computer than what they would really be on the wall. So that doesn't help at all.
