Decorating & Furniture/Color selection

Question
I have a chocolate brown leather sectional with cherry wood accents.  What color would you suggest painting the walls?

Answer
Hi, Joey,
        Because your sectional is neutral in colour you have lots of options for wall colour. Your final choice will depend on floor colour, whether carpet or hard surface.
        You might go with a sandy beige, be dramatic with dark reds, blues, or greens; make it a forest retreat with earth tones, or choose a shade or tint of blue or pale green. Hope this helps, and good luck :)
