Good Questions: Living and Dining Room Help?

Hello, I recently moved into a new apartment and I need some desperate help. I consider my taste modern, contemporary. I like colors and interesting pieces. First question: My living room looks boring and needs some artwork over the couch and some more colorful throw pillows...

...I like it when things don't look so matchy-matchy but still work together. I am just not that good at putting that together. For artwork I was looking into getting the Ikea Premiar NY canvas portrait, I feel that its large size will work well. I don't want to spend too much money...Please help...

Second Question:
Even worse than my living room is my dining room. Or lack thereof. It's a room with a dining table but that's about it. I have been trying to find a mirror that will work over my server or maybe even a piece of art. Another issue is that large wall alongside the table. I feel that it's naked and needs something but I'm not sure of what, if anything at all. PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!!
