Need ideas for new family room

We are beginning constuction on a new F/R 22' X 22' and I have hit a wall picking a color scheme. My house is done in earth tones of red, green, terracotta and browns with a moorish/global feel. I would like something different , but not too much of a departure from the rest of the house. Cozy, romantic, maybe some vintage, but not too feminine. I have already purchased a chenille tan sofa (10' X 11.5') extra deep and oversized. Although the rest of the house is hardwood I would like to implement shag or plush (photo attached) wall to wall carpeting in a mocha or very forgiving color because of my 3 dogs. I have attached a photo of what the wall unit/ built in tv will look like although I'm not sure if I'll use stacked stone or slate.
Help!! I can't think of what other colors to add to brown and beige that will not make the room look too 70ish or "neutral". The room will have 2 6X6 windows which will add a bit of natural light. Thanks for your suggestions.

Use the K.I.S.S. principle. Leave it alone. It looks good right now.

This is the link to the Sherwin Williams Color Visualizer.
It is a drag & drop color cordinator.

You have to LAUNCH it from this link... then play around with it some to get the hang of how it works. It is easier than it looks.
