NEW house help! How can I update/ modernize paint with Brown carpet

I desperately want to brighten up our living room and add more of a modern/updated look by repainting the ceiling and walls. Both of which are a sandy brown color. My dilemma is we do not want to buy new carpet- as it is new and nice. But also brown. We have lots and lots of trim, which is an off white. I REALLY want to avoid painting the trim as there is so much of it throughout our house.
I am considering going with a grey-beige like Sherman Williams “Agreeable Grey” but wondering if that is a complete design “no no” because of the trim and carpet colors.
We are also adding stone to our fireplace that would incorporate greys whites and tans. Please help!
