finding right paint color

We want to paint our main living floor in a variant of tan/brown. Our woodwork is natural wood, with no stain and I don't want it to look orangish when we paint. We have accents of brick red in our pillows, a quilt on the wall, and will do an accent wall of red in the kitchen. Any suggestions of tans/light browns that will not make the woodwork look orange? Also, our couch is dark brown leather and a red leather recliner. Classy and warm is the look we are going for.

you'll only be able to find out by painting up a piece of poster board and holding it up to the woodwork. look at it in the daytime as well as at night with your lamps turned on. i think Benjamin Moore or Sherwin Williams (?) sells little samples of paint now for about $3 each ~ just enough paint for a 2x2 foot area.
