Our advice:

The color of the sofa is grey. Grey is a neutral, contemporary color that goes with any color scheme. As we can see from the photos, the current color scheme is based on a vivid carrot tone that completely dominates space. The kitchen and the living room are separate areas divided by a bench; however there is visual communication between these two spaces. The columns and beams instead of being camouflaged were painted carrot and therefore are faultily highlighted.

Our suggestion is that you should opt for a more neutral, cold and calming color scheme. One choice could be a color scheme based on olive green or even better a color scheme based on raf blue (air force blue). Raf blue is a medium tone of azure which is both inviting and fresh. Raf blue goes with both warm and cold tones. For a warmer and more welcoming look you can combine this blue tone with a soft cream or an ivory tone. For a more contemporary and industrial look you can paint the background light grey.
