Ideas to Make New Apartment Feel Less Dark & Heavy?

Good Questions

Q: I just moved into my new Logan Square apartment and I need some decorating ideas. I used to have carpet in my old place so all of my wood furniture worked just fine. This place has wood floors so now I feel like there is just too much wood going on (coffee table, accent table, media cabinet). I can't buy a rug because I need the place to be wheelchair accessible....

Even with the apple green couch and the yellow walls I feel like the place is dark and heavy. Should I paint some furniture? Get some new pieces in different materials? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated :)
