Before and After: A Warm and Toasty Living Room

CasaSugar Community member mrb929 asked us for some paint suggestions for her living room a while back. Well she's back with an update in the Su Casa group and I'm loving what she did with the place. She wrote:

Although linens, tans and grays were all I could think about, I found inspiration in a magazine to test out chocolate brown in my living room. Some of you guys suggested I try a rust color to bring out the hues in my rug under my ottoman but I couldn't handle hanging in a room begging for longhorn décor. My light blue lamps and curtains had me thinking about blue or gray but I thought the room needed some punch instead of more calm colors. I tested out five different shades of tans and beiges but it was the deep brown chip titled "Barista" that got me excited to start painting. Two days later, it was up on the walls and I just can't get enough. To make it pop, I touched up the trim and made the whole place look brand new! Now it's time to add some punchy pillows — coral?
