Good Questions: Color to Tone Down the Blue in Sofa?

Penelope sent in a good question: What wall color will bring out the gray (and tone down the blue) of this couch? I thought this couch was more gray when I bought it. I took it home to my rental with blue walls and blue carpet... yikes! Now I'm buying my first house and want to bring out the gray...

The new living room has lots of light (for the Pacific Northwest) and has moulding about a foot below the ceiling (I'd like to paint the majority of the walls one color and the foot above the moulding and the ceiling a lighter tone). Thanks!

Please share your color tips and suggestions with Penelope in the comments...
