Effect of repainting my restaurant

I want to repaint the walls of my restaurant with a lighter colour. I want to gauge the effect this will have on the look of the place, but have neither 3D modelling software nor the knowledge to use this software. Can any of you Photoshop mavens assist?

I designed most of my restaurant myself. Small pic here
and a much higher quality pic here
. It was designed to be a nice warm place, and indeed it's popular as a romantic setting.
But the burnt orange painted on the walls is casting an orange (no surprise there) hue on everything else, and I think much of the richness of the wooden panelling on the side, the flooring, etc. is getting blown out by it.
So I'm thinking of repainting the walls a nice light peach colour to make the other elements stand out a bit more and make the place look a tad more spacious. (Since those photos were taken, I've added some water colour paintings on the walls.)
I don't want to spend time and money repainting it and then find out it looks like crap. So... as I mentioned in the intro, can any of you Photoshop gurus help with techniques to perhaps simulate the effect of a light peach colour on the walls? It's not just a colour replace 'cause the tables, chairs, etc. all will be affected.
