You have a lot going on there.... Your floor tile reads muted peachy-orange. None of your paint chips seem to relate to this. I must say I don't care for any of the colors you have chosen. Is the fabric swatch the actual fabric for your sectional? It appears to have a purple undertone, which is good. But, I would choose a taupe paint like BM Cedar Key, Stone Hearth or Indian River. This will tone down the orange in the floor and accent the sectional nicely. Stay away from the colors gold or yellow. It looks terrible w/ orange. The neutrals in your picture are too green. They do not work either. Your blues are too bright and clean. Find a inspiration pillow or fabric to work from for your accent colors. I think you would be happier w/ a burnt red or rust colors. You can not ignore your floor tile but, you can make color corrections and live happily with it.

I'm sorry that your comment refers so much to the floor tile- that actually has nothing to do with the color scheme. Needed a place to take a pic of sample ideas. I want to get a sectional couch in that color fabric swatch. Thanks for your input

The grey fabric couch will be placed on red mahogany wood floors. Still think taupe for the walls? What about accent colors...I do love blue! Forgive me for my terrible post but I thought a pic cold help fight for a response

A taupe would likely work for the walls with the grey sofa. You say u have a mahogany wood floor in the room in question? Can u show the samples near that floor for comparison?

The colors I mentioned are great neutrals for that grey swatch in your photo. You could also look at BM Fossil or Portland Gray. As far as blue, the one at the top of your photo is probably the best. Yellow or Orange or Gold will work as an accent but, not all three. Also, coral red.
