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.

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.

Diluted black or gray paint, applied as a watery solution, works well to reduce wall brightness without enforcing a color scheme.

I agree with David and Robert.

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...
