Camel, a couple of shades darker than the carpet. Brown would be nice also but with the dark red sofa it might be kind of dark.

This sounds like my living room. I painted opposing walls navy, and the rest a light cream. I love it!

I think a mossy green--not too dark in color value would be beautiful. Shades of green and red usually compliment each other.

How about a tan, and use a Confederate blue or forest greet for accent pillows, etc.

I would do a a combination: I would pin stripe the wall. It is very easy, I did it in my bedroom. Paint the wall with the couch on it two shades darker that the carpet in a nice muted tone flat paint. Measure how thin you want the pin stripes (the thinner the more elegant) with painter's tape as a guide place the tape around the wall leaving a space between the tape to paint the same red color of the couch.

Choose a semi gloss muted red paint. The opposite wall can be painted with a nice green color.
The two remaining walls can be painted with a paint a shade darker than the carpet.

I know it sounds like much. But the green really goes good with Red. My living room has carmel carpet, cream color couch and a kelly green wall that was color washed with gray behind the couch. It looks like aged stone, that has turned green.

i have a camel colored couch and was thinking of painting one wall dark brown with accent lighter brown walls. i tried to match my camel couch with a dark brown and none seemed to work very well. make sure you are careful if you choose a dark brown because it may be harder than you think.

I have a red couch and I painted the walls a country blue. I love it. My tables & entertainment center are black.

A Candlelight ivory would be lovely.
