Question
Thanks so much for your response and the link.  I like your suggestion, but need some more help.  In addition to coffee and end tables will have lamp table, small eating table with 4 chairs, a rocking chair, plant stand, table and floor lamp, and a couple side chairs.  Which of these pieces should be painted green and which brown.  Should other pieces in addition to the sofa have the beige fabric?  Should I consider a sisal-type rug to downplay the terra cotta floor or is it too "summery" looking?   Thank you so much.  

Answer
Dear Marilyn,
I think that the coffee table, end table,lamp table, rocking chair, plant stand, and eating table should all be painted a brown color that matches your wood in the living area. The four chairs for the eating table, side chairs,and sofa should be painted Forest green. I also think that all furniture that have fabric should have the beige color. I think that a sisal rug will make the room cold. Here is a visual of the room.

I would suggest choosing a jute rug similar to these from the company store.
This red one is my favorite for your style and colors. It will help to warm up the room but still feel like a sun room
