Need help choosing fabric

I just started taking an upholstery class and have a wing back chair that will be my victim/project. The chair is circa 1985 and I want to bring it closer to the 21st century. The constraints I have are evident in the attached photos. I love the living room rug and I don't plan to replace the sofa anytime soon. I will be working on draperies, probably in the fall. My husband likes traditional, I do too, but am willing to branch out a bit out of our comfort zone. What fabric for fabrics(I am drawn to 2-tone wing backs) would coordinate with the sofa(a merlot color velvet), the rug (jewel tone Karastan) and the walls (Sherwin Williams Blonde.
Window treatments are to be M'Fay
but I haven't chosen fabric for them yet either.

The first photo is of the living room, the second one is taken from the living room looking at the foyer.

Thanks for any suggestions!

The chair was dark blue before, I want to get away from a solid dark blue. If I'm going to go through all the trouble of re-doing it, I want it to look different.
