Don't want my black clothes to turn orange...

Have you painted a closet a bright color? How did it turn out?

I recently painted my bedroom a warm gray
with undertones of purple. It looks fantastic with yellow-green, spring green, or burnt orange, and I have always wanted a brightly colored closet. I'm slightly worried about whether it will affect the way my clothes appear, but if I mostly wear neutrals will that be a problem? Also, what type of paint is best to achieve a modern but not garish look? I have built-in wooden shelves, already painted with water-based paint, and would like to paint walls and shelves the same color, but I'm not sure if they should be the same finish. Thanks for the advice!
