Painting a family room.. help!

I have a big family room off my kitchen. the kitchen has an island and then I put my couch facing away from the kitchen. so the couch kinda splits the rooms. its looking out our glass doors to our yard. the walls are big and I was thinking of painting all of them?

couch is a dark chocolate brown and I was thinking of doing blues? idk what are your thoughts? I was thinking a dark slate blue? and then lighten my couch with tan, whites and blue throw pillows.. and maybe hang curtains over my glass doors? whagt colors do u think go bestwith brown couches? and if I do a slate blue should I just do one wall then the other two a tan or grey?

I keep looking at pinterest and I seem to like cool colors most lol

  • I have the chocolate/gray blue as my living room colors. It's very calming. My accent colors are tan and off white.

  • I love taupe with brown and then a two tone fabric with both colors in it for a drape. You can still do throw pillows in any color you want.

  • What color clothing do you wear most? It makes sense to paint your home in a color that is flattering to you and that you obviously like!
