Need help for living room before husband kills me!

I have always loved the light airy white and light gray look. I was into gray before it became popular and painted every room a different shade of gray 8 years ago. We purchased a couch I loved last year for our living room that never gets used. It was a modern light gray I loved. Well, today, carpet has been installed. We had to go dark due to 4 kids ages 3-8. We chose a beautiful dark taupe. It's nice....but now the couch looks silver, not gray, and soo out of place. Our walls are a very light gray and looks great with either the couch or the carpet. My husband will kill me if I tell him how much I hate it! What can I do to pull them together? I was going to purchase 2 light blue spa chairs to replace the dark chocolate leather pub chairs, but ow I'm not sure what to do!! Any ideas or suggestions? A new couch is not an option! The picture doesn't show the contrast. The carpet is much darker and couch much lighter,

An area rug will solve the problem! A little color and pattern, and will "break up" the similar color of carpet/sofa/wall. Lower your art above the sofa and bring in the chairs a bit so hopefully you can get the front legs of the chairs on the rug.

I think pillows in a stripe and/or floral can pull all the colors together. If you want a calm feeling room add art in the same colors. If you want to add a pop of color, then sprinkle it around the space.
