I find very bright walls to be practically difficult. In a small room, light spill can cause a wall to appear brighter than a nearby face. In a large room, when the subjects can be positioned away from walls, it's not such a problem.
The color of a room should be based on the needs of the story and your specific visual approach. It could be warm, cold, greenish, saturated, desatured, bright, dark, textured, smooth, busy, empty, etc.
Diluted black or gray paint, applied as a watery solution, works well to reduce wall brightness without enforcing a color scheme.

White is extremely difficult to work with, because it will burn out so fast. Specially on video.
A nice rule I use is to place your hand in front of the paint, if the paint is brighter than your hand, guess what will burn out first...
