I'm Paint Paralyzed and Need Color Suggestions!

Q: After nearly 20 years of renting I finally own a house, and I'm paint-paralyzed!

I have a Room and Board sofa in Doss Heather that I love; when I bought it it looked nice and gray in my rental. My new house, however, has very different (but wonderful) light and the sofa trends much more gray/green (larger photo below). I'm having trouble figuring out a paint color for the walls. I like most greens, blues, and grays, in particular. This might be the problem.

If I want to downplay the green, do I go more blue with paint? Something else?

Help? I'm currently looking at Valspar Eddie Bauer Home Woodsmoke, Benjamin Moore Barren Plain, and Pittsburgh Paints Blue Beard. I'm afraid my wall is going to be completely covered in samples if I don't get some help with a color direction...
