I actually like the paint color, but the busy patterns in the drapes and rug there cause a little confusion. I would personally consider a light dusky blue in a solid pattern for the drapes, with a matching rug that has a bold but simple pattern, perhaps a chevron. I'd go taupe/nude for the sofa and all other major accents.

I suggest you first buy the area rug. You can pull a color from the
rug for the sofa and chairs... Since you have small children, I suggest you look into
a leather sofa. I like the lighter color sofas over the darker ones.

You can soften the leather sofa with throw pillows as well as adding
bright colors with the pillows... As far as chairs,
I like solid colors, again you can achieve splashes of color with throw
pillows. I have lots of throw pillows and change them off a lot.

If you like oriental rugs, start there and then choose your colors from
your rug for the sofa and upholstery.

If you go the leather sofa route make sure it's not bonded leather.
Bonded leather is a very thin slice of leather bonded to fabric.
It won't hold up to the wear and tear and also animals nails...

I forgot to mention that I also prefer the same color on the walls.
Our living room, dining room and family room are a creamy white
with a hint of beige.
Our kitchen was two tone beige, and we just
painted it the same creamy white color as the other rooms.
I'm loving it. It's a great canvas background for adding splashes of
color through out the house. I'm looking to add some red accents
to the kitchen now.

That said, I think your walls look great, and I like that they are all
the same color. Your walls are your canvas. Now begin to create
your art.

Your living room needs to bit special. Try the beautiful shades of turquoise and hot pink. It is one of the latest trends. You can opt for the big hits of colour for the living room's palette. It simple helps you to create a bright, airy and happy space. And the best part is that it goes well with both feminine and masculine style.

Colors seen in nature, such as sky navy and restful leaf green have a calming result on uae, while red is a inspiring shade and yellow is uplifting.

Would you like to have something uniformly styled? like a one-color scheme?

Regards,

I really like that living room picture. Considering from that picture it's hard to say which color will suit perfect on those wall and sofas.

When it is about living room, neutral colors turn out to be the perfect background. Light or dark, it is your choice and accordingly you can add accessories in muted shades. You can also pick bright hues to accomplish different looks. The other beautiful option to add life to your living space is pick the cool blue draperies. Blend them with cream and dark brown floors. It offers a relaxing and contemporary living area.

One word Slip-Covers. You do not have to spend much on them. Go to the money off store and find three king size flat sheets, in colors and patterns that you like and cover the three sofas. It seems that with three sofas your place is rather big. You might try rearranging them into separate seating areas. Also, two very important elements in decorating are accessories and throw pillows. Both are fairly inexpensive, but effective. Give me more information and I would love to try to assist you more.

I would think accent colors of a deep burgundy and a pale slate blue would work well with the beige/yellowish walls. If you go with neutrals on the large pieces, couch etc, go with the darker and brighter colors on all accents. And use a large wall art piece to tie it all together.
