It looks muddy, sorry. You might try a glaze over paint instead of paint over paint.

I would add glaze to the actual paint this was just the samples I bought. My husband said the same thing that is looked muddy. But overall do you think it will be a good look? I am not 100%

We really need to see the entire room to vote in. But, I agree with Intereriors International, it looks a bit "muddy". Just paint a nice wall color for longevity.

I love your rug and couch but I don't think I will ever like the paint.

I would paint the walls beige, at least 2 of them. and add a few brown pillows to the couch. I wouldn't use the color above.

The truth is , no brown. You already have enough of the dark in your space. Opt to pull out a color from the rug to paint. Good luck.

If in doubt don't! A lesson learnt the hard way.....(
The artwork has quite a bit of chocolate in it already, it will get lost, and lose impact. Stick to neutral walls and add you personal style with textures and soft furnishings.
If it is added texture you are after, but keep it subtle. Wallpaper can be great - see below.

Grab that neutral looks to be light gray or white, the lightest color in the rug. Use that. If you must go with a darker color somewhere, pick 1 wall without much furniture on it to paint, as an accent wall. But please not the brown, maybe the blue from the rug. That way if you do not like it you can fairly easily change it in a weekend without moving too much stuff around. I love your furniture and the rug. I agree with the posters above neutral lighter on walls and punches of color/ accent in art, pillows, throws etc... post some pics when you get it in your space. :D
