Typically, the wall color is something that comes after furnishings have been determined. Do you have photos of the furniture you'll be putting in the space? Give us an idea of your style preferences and you'll get more input.

A tobacco brown sectional and lighter brown chair and love seat. I'm thinking either a light gray or beige on the walls and then bold, brightly colored artwork, pillows, and rug. I would just use the blinds in the windows, no curtains or lighter or fewer curtains.

It sounds like you have a clear vision of what you want to do. Since you're planning on bold brightly colored artwork, I would make sure the wall color is neutral enough to compliment all of your pieces. A fresh white or a true light grey would be my best suggestions.

Take a look at some of the kilim rugs for great colors and patterns. I think one would work well with the brown furniture you mention. I'm inclined to believe that you may do better without the loveseat and opt for two chairs instead - especially if you'll have a TV in the space.
