Brainstorm Wednesday { color palette }

I'm still brainstorming a new color palette for my Spring printed fabric introductions. Earlier this week I order a new rug pattern, which contains dark gray, light blue/gray, and natural. These are NOT ground breaking colors, but I LOVE the dark gray versus the espresso brown, which has becoming ordinary and predictable. The natural color is same color as the organic canvas ground cloth in my fabrics. These 3 colors will also be included in my new fabrics along with 3+ additional colors. Another major color constraint is a large sectional in my studio (it is a paprika color) - ideally the new color palette should coordinate with the sectional, but also freshen it up... This is what I've come up with so far :) What do you you think? I colorized one of my patterns to give you an idea. Keep in mind that your screen colors could look totally different than mine... The colors can come across as bright & cheery or subdued & calming depending on the color combination - this is a great exercise for me and really helps me to visualize a new palette!
