From Dream to Home
Please suggest an accent color(s) and ideas for final touches!

I am styling our great room. We have deep brown leather couches and deep brown blinds with beige decorative tape. We just painted the room Benjamin Moore Silvermist (it is sold as a grey, but it has very heavy blue undertones...more like a light blue). And we just got this rug (picture attached). The rug is quite neutral. It is mainly beige and sage, with brown and grey accents. I'll be adding off-white curtains in the room to soften the dark wood blinds. And now I need help with final touches. I'll need to decorate the mantle, including possibly a mirror for above the fireplace. And I'll need throw pillows and throws. And we'll need a table lamp and a new lighting fixture. It's practically a blank slate. Although I am aiming for a serene and cozy feel, I'm wondering how I should accessorize. Add in a color? If so, what color would go without being too crazy (like I said, I want to stay serene and cozy). Your thoughts are so appreciated!
