Living Room Colors

pic first seen on nibs
More on the redecor of the "new place". I'm picking out colors of paint for the living room. I need opinions!

The dynamics:
I have a couch and ottomon to match this chair. The throw pillows are the other colors in the room. The curtains are the purple color.

This is a flower arrangement I made to bring together the colors in the living room. I would like to use this piece in the living room as well.

Using I put together Paint swatches. (By the way, they have the COOLEST system for putting colors together for a room on their website. You can even download your own pictures of the rooms of your house and try paint colors on the"walls".)

Breaking down the colors:
Sagey Green: Couch Chair and Ottomon (already have)
Deep Purple: Curtains and Throw pillows, Flower arrangement (already have)
Greyish white color: Throw pillows, Flower arrangement (already have)
Greyish Tan: Possible wall color?

Lighter Purple: Possible Wall color?

Any other Color suggestions? Remember. The couch will be right against the color on the wall. The wrong shade of brown blends makes the couch blend into the wall. I Can change the Purple curtain aspect, but am kind of stuck with the Sage couches. I'm trying to use things I already have where possible. I'm finding Purple is a hard palette to work with. What I don't want to do is leave the walls white or cream. I want something different. Ideas are totally welcome!!
