What colors should I use in this room? I'm getting a black leather sectional from a family member.

I have black leather sofas and the same color wood floors as you and went with a golden beige on the walls. I'm mobile right now but I'll try to post a pic tomorrow. It's similar to what you have now but deeper, darker, and more subdued. Honestly though, depending on your tastes, any color goes with black, even what you already have up.

Really, if you are getting black furniture, your colors are endless that can go on the wall. What colors do you like? Blue/grey/white go nice.

I didn't plan to paint the room so everything has to work with the yellow

Sorry, I misunderstood and thought you were asking about a wall color...LOL

I used crimson and gold as accent colors in my room. I'm currently searching for a new area rug. Here are some pics as promised:

 I like the idea of using a deep, earthy red as an accent, it will help tone down the yellow (which is lovely but if you have alot of black it may seem too bright) and it will help tie in the fireplace brick ( I'm a little jealous) also.
