Need advice on paint color for my new home

This is our first home that we are just building and before we move in I would like to paint the living room for a more cozy feel. What you see on photos is another house- same floor plan. We have earth tone tile instead of the carpet. I love gray and brown notes, I think they are really easy to combine with most other furniture and drape colors. Dilemma I have is which walls to paint darker and which lighter taking the open floor plan. We will be buying most of the new furniture after we move in. Any suggestions are welcome :) Thank you!

Hello!

I would suggest sticking to a lighter color as it will keep the rooms very open and perceived as larger! AI have a attached a few color options!

Yes..Paint AFTER you move in, or at least after you have purchased your furniture, rugs, window treatments, etc. There are thousands of shades of every color and only one or two sofas, rugs, etc. that you will like. After you purchase them your color choices are narrowed by a lot and it will be easy to choose.

Thanks for all your suggestions. Do you think I should avoid using grey? And what do you think which walls should I paint darker and which lighter? Both niches will be darker, maybe faux metallic.

Grey is great! I just think warmer tones would look great in your home. Grey would look nice with the carpet though. In the last picture it looks like your dining room is on the right. I would paint that little room a a darker shade than the rest of the walls!

I forgot to mention our kitchen cabinets will be dark espresso color and instead of carpet we will have earth tone tile throughout the living room, kitchen, dining and hallway.

Here is a caramel tan, a taupe leaning more towards brown and a medium gray just to give you ideas of how it might look.
