What to pair (colour wise) with this artwork?

I have this artwork hanging above my couch in our living room. The frame is black with a gold inset. The room colour right now is a beigy/brown (ugly). What colours would you suggest pulling from the painting to decorate the room? My couch is not the one on the pic, it's cream coloured and we have a really dark brown media unit.

Thanks!

Our family room is already that colour red...so I wanted something different. The room is also pretty narrow so I don't want a darker colour to make it feel even smaller.

Maybe this ideabook will help you make a decision, follow the link under the picture.



It would help to see photos of your room and your furniture too.

Didn't know about the red. Bet it is a pretty room.

I've put a couple of Sherwin-Williams colours behind your painting, so you can see what different colours do. Gulfstream, Refresh, Divine White, Silver Strand.
Since it is a media room and quite dark, I personally wouldn't mind to paint the walls a darker colour. Makes it snug and quite dramatic. So I particularly like something like Gulfstream. When choosing a lighter colour like the beige or grey, you'll have to try it out on the walls first, see how it works with the colour of your carpet and your sofa.

Hope it helps you to get some ideas :-)
