Q: We're moving into a new apartment and are trying to work out what color to paint the living room walls to go with our big, red sofa. The sofa is a dark red with a bit of blue in it. (see pic). The apartment currently has sludge brown walls...

We hate brown. We like cheerful colors. The room gets a lot of sunlight. Would yellow be too much? Or would a blue work? And should that be a gray-blue, or a green-blue? Or best keep away from blue and stick with yellow? Or something else we haven't thought of? help!
