Answer
Dear Robin Munn,
  I would suggest pulling a color from your pictures that are on the wall. Possibly find a color that is in both of the pictures. If you dont want to do that then I would choose a light tan color or a light rust color. I like Coronado Dunes from www.behr.com

Hope this helps. If you have pictures of the images you are more then welcome to send them to me and I can find a color that will look nice with your living room.
