Help choosing colour for a dresser?

Check out this dresser we picked up at the last Christie antique show.  Its 40 wide by 36 tall - a good size.  I think with a better paint job and the hardware cleaned up (they paitned it white!) it could look phenomenal. I don't know if you can see the lovely detail on the legs and in the middle at the top.

But what colour should we paint it? Most of the painted french antique dressser pics online are white or cream.  I was thinking a grey could be nice or maybe just the white.

The dilemmna is we haven't painted the room the dresser is going in - its currently cream but may go to a light blue like the rest of the house (like the walls in this room.)

PS - the wood things on the table are the 'arms' to hold the mirror that came with the dresser - you can see the mirror peeking out at the bottom left corner of the pic.
