A New (More Muted) Color Palette

I'm currently working on switching some things up in our family room. Which is sort of insane, because I feel like I just recently "finished" the family room!! Here it is currently:
I've also had this artwork and table skirt in a corner of our family room for a while:
Ironically, a client of mine has a similar color palette of blue and magenta/mulberry purple. She has been wanting a piece of art for her space, and I've also been craving a bit of a change and something a little more neutral.

So it worked out perfectly that she is purchasing my watercolor and I'm replacing it with a very similar watercolor (from the same artist) in a more neutral color palette. I also got a new table skirt!

The colors in the above picture aren't too accurate, the new piece looks more like this:

I love it!! It still has some beautiful, rich colors.. but a lot more muted.

I came across this image from Pinterest recently and it reminded me of the new color palette I was striving for:
Luckily, our green ottoman still works with this new palette. I have my sights set on new pillows, though.

I'm looking to bring out that bit of purple in the painting.. sort of what I have now but more muted. I love this fabric from Thibaut:

I'm going to the New York market this weekend and I am going to see if there are any good pillow options :) If not, I may go with the Thibaut!

I'll keep you guys updated!
