Decorating & Furniture/Decorating - paint color


I need help selecting paint colors.  We have lived in this home 3 1/2 years and I'm ready for color.  It feels cold and uninviting.  We were going to purchase new furniture but with 3 boys ages 5 and under that seemed wasteful!  However, my husband surprised me with the end tables.  Now the room seems worse.  

Our couch/love seat is plaid - mauves, greens, navys, tan.  The end tables are tan/black marble tops, with white wash legs.  The house trim is all natural oak.  I was hoping to attach photos to this email but wasn't sure how too.

I was hoping paint would help.  Any color suggestions?  THANKS  

How about sending me some photos with this description again to me directly so I can be of more help?  Send the photos to I look forward to seeing them soon.

Happy Decorating
