Adding Color To My Boring Living Room?

Good Questions

Q: We just moved to a new apartment and have a small living + dining combined room. The living area is pretty much all you can see from the photo. One word to describe it now: BORING. I want to add some colors in the room, greyish/light blue and orange are my favorite colors.

Pin it button big

But I'm not sure which one will fit with the black sofa, which is the largest furniture in the room. My husband loves it so we decided to keep it. Also, to add colors, rugs, curtains, or anything else will be a good choice? I'm just afraid an orange rug would be too bold.
