Question Paint color help


I just restained my hardwood floors a red mahagany color, and now my paint color doesn't look right.

Here's my set-up:

My furniture in the living room is very formal. The sofa and the love seat are a creamy white with tiny pink flowers that are unnoticable unless close. The side chairs are pink. The tables are all a grey marble. All the wood in the furniture is a dark mahogany.

The dining room has antique furniture that is a more of a chestnut color with creamy white seats.

The drapes in both rooms are pink and all the baseboards are white. There is an opening between the two rooms so both rooms can be seen at the same time.

Any suggestions on paint colors? I would like to stay away from anything pink as there is too much in the room already. I would like to make the rooms look larger though, especially the dining room.

Thanks for your help!
