By painting first, you can "have your way" with the room without worry. Touch-up should be easy. Exception: dark colors which cannot be touched up

Redo hardwood floor before you paint?

Opinions vary on this, but most contractors agree it's better to paint the walls before refinishing hardwood floors. It's a matter of practicality - you don't want to splatter or spill paint on your newly finished floors, nor put stepstools and such on top of floor finish that hasn't fully cured yet. Others will say the sanding process on floors will leave dust all over newly painted walls, and mars the trim. So it's really just your own preference. Seems to me that cleaning dust off walls and touching up paint on trims is easier and less hazardous than risking paint spills and scuffed floor finish.
