Ideas For Adding Color to Brown Living Room?

Good Questions

Q: I have recently moved into a new apartment and I have a couple of large pieces of furniture in my living room that I love, but they are all brown/natural wood. Throw pillows are arriving shortly to add some color to the sofa, but I still need more! There is a red bar cart in the corner, and I would like to bring in more reds and oranges. I still have the space to fill next to the TV in the wall shelving...

... (don't worry, cords will be hidden!) and something big and bright to go above the credenza. Any ideas as to how I can bring more color into the room?
