Should I Paint My New Apartment?

Should I Paint My New Apartment?

Q: I just signed a lease on a new condo and the place is pretty masculine looking. Should I work with the current color scheme of brick red/pale blue or re-paint? My furniture is simple: IKEA brown leather sofa with two hand-me-down chairs, one sea foam green and the other a brown/grey contemporary print. I am thinking I need a new sofa, what color? I just don't know how to work with that giant brick red fireplace!
