Help Ronda Choose a Cooler Paint Shade

Ronda recently moved into a large, western-style town home in Colorado, and is slowly making personal changes. Now, she's come to us for some assistance choosing a new paint color…

This is what Ronda has to say about the current paint color:

"The walls, carpeting and floors are all warm, light-brown or cream tones. The furniture is an eclectic mix of southwestern and modern pieces, most of which are also cream and brown. These warm tones heat up the house, especially with the sun hitting this orangey-brown accent wall through a large window in the living room. Does anyone have any suggestions for a tone that would not offset our home's decor, but would cool down the wall? We were thinking a taupey or grey, light brown. Suggestions?"

Let's help Ronda out, readers. What are your color suggestions for cooling off this space?
