Painting Room With Red and Black Furniture

I have a black leather contemporary sofa and a crimson red chair in my living room. My ceiling is an exposed concrete gray. Any ideas/suggestions on what color should I paint my walls (they are currently white)? Thanks.

I would paint a kaki, tan neutral color.

What else is in room you want to keep? How about art work colors, are those the only two colors? Take inventory of all colors, and try to imagine one as wall color, as is, or lighter, or darker.

Grays are always good with red and black, but that doesn't feel right to me. Soft green/gray? What shade of red is it you have? Any pillows, throws that contribute color?

Leather of any kind is very masculine. Then with the red chair that is dominant I would go with a denim blue or any blue muted color.

Good Luck
