Good Questions

Q: I'm moving into a small apartment in New York with white walls, white french doors and wooden floors. It's my first apartment, so I don't have any furniture other than this lovely vintage yellow velvet loveseat, which was handed down to me from my grandmother. How can I style my living room around this couch? Should I paint the walls? How can I tie in other couches, comfy chairs or other furniture with this fairly unique (and I suppose fairly dated) color and fabric? Thanks!
