Paint colors for house

Replacing carpet with a wood laminate, and painting the house. Need overall wall color as well as accent wall colors. Am thinking burgundy for the dinning room and family room, on the back walls. Any thoughts? The family room is connected to the kitchen ( badly in need of a remodel, but not in the plans right now). The kitchen also needs to be painted, especially the cabinets.

Am also looking for new lighting in the dinning room ( brushed nickel?)
And the hallway.

Excuse the mess as we are installing flooring and everything is being moved from room to room. Laminate will go in the family room and kitchen, tv will be replaced with a flat screen ( and the oak cabinet is going), Plan on having canned lights in the kitchen to replace the existing fluorescent lighting.

And our bedroom will have the laminate and new paint as well.

Laminate is an oak color, see photo. Was also thinking of a sage green. Have done one room in a taupe already, see photo, and love the colors in the pillows

The taupe works with your floors and sofa, nice choice! I would carry that color throughout and bring in your sage and that nice rust color from your throw through additional accessories, drapes and accent rugs.

A chrome drum shade chandelier would nicely update your dinning room without being too much. I've attached a hallway light suggestion as well.
