bolder color. If you have a darker color now, consider brightening
it up with an ecru or white (be aware you will need multiple
coats and a good primer).

a red accent to it. Consider color matching it and painting
your walls that color. Look for colors of other items in your
living room that could be a great new wall color.

about making your room too dark, just to one or two walls,

walls later if you'd like.
