Homey-er Decorating with Black?

Good Questions

Q: I have been trying to decorate/style our new living room. We have always bought black furniture since it seems to blend well with any new setting/space. I have a black sofa bed, black coffee table against a red brick wall. Is there a way I could make the space look more interesting/'homey' (with a rug or colored pillows) without having the stark contrast of black and color? Would love to hear your suggestions. Thanks in advance!
