What style are you going for? These are all neutral tones. Do you want to extend that?

modern perhaps. It seems like colors in the same palette do nothing for the room, wondering about a steel blue?

One of the most important things you'll need to know to pick a perfect color is to whether your furnishing are in a cool-based color or a warm based-color. I'm going to guess they are warm colors as natural leather is rarely a cool color. That said, a color that sounds like "steel blue" sounds like a cool color and will not match your warm furnishings. But there are many shades of blue that are warm in tone. You can test this by picking two different white paint chips-one that is glaringly white; another that is creamy. Pick blue paint samples that match the creamy white and you shouldn't go wrong.
