Several ways to go for accent. Less extreme would be SW's Stonebriar or Sleepy Blue. For higher contrast try Optimistic Yellow. Take the picture with you to the paint store and start with these colors. Camera, lighting, etc, can make a difference. Take chips outside store's artificial light to decide and move up or down or across chips if necessary to find the perfect one for you. Then get a sample tester can and paint large poster board to hang on the wall and see how your own natural and electric light changes the colors. It is a process.

I agree with @stagedforperfection Furniture should come first then paint then accessories. I have also made this mistake.

I think it very useful to have a inspiration piece that helps to inform the decor of a room. Many of the most engaging rooms are holistically designed by taking into account all elements of the space. With that said, I'd like to see what else is going on in the room before making any recommendations. Do you have more photos you can post?

Hi S, designing a space is like solving a 3 dimensional puzzle. You may want to start with more puzzle pieces, as suggested above, plus create a title for your puzzle so you're always adding great pieces to the puzzle. Ex: 'Contemporary Nature' which could mean clean lines juxtaposed with natural elements, etc. Enjoy the process and don't hesitate to change things as you go. Best, Diane
