Hi Lisa, sorry for the late reply.  It's really tough for me to picture your whole space, especially with no photo of it.   The only thing I can recommend is maybe choose a light coloured, warm toned neutral colour that would compliment both your wood floors and the tan carpet. You can also use various shades of the same colour to define the different areas.  

I also offer an 'Ask the Decorator' service on my website. I would be happy to be of further assistance to you if needed.
Thank you, for your time.
