I would like to to know what color paint would match best with my leather sofa which is a butterscotch color.

If you have a loose piece, like a pillow, to take in to the paint store they can computer match the color in paint..Then take the sample to the paint chips and match as well as possible. The graduated chips will show you other shades that will be pleasing of the same color. If you cannot take a loose "piece"of the couch to the paint store then choose several chips that are close and then take them home and match the sofa.
If you had a pair of pants that color, what would you wear with it? Just about anything. Same goes for paint. Just think of it like putting an outfit together, and have fun!
What about a very light shade of the same butterscotch color? The paint stores have the cards with three or more shades of the same color. Get one that matches the sofa and then go very light. Just make sure that the paint isn't too dark since you want the sofa to be the star. Accent with pillows of burgundy or a dark color that you love. If you have a table near the couch, use the same dark color silk flowers or other items that match the pillows.
