Throw Pillows to Brighten Up Living Room?

Good Questions

Q: This is my tiny 129 square foot living room. I put in a lot of effort to make the room look nice. The leather couch, though, is a bit big, but due to budget can't be replaced at the moment. My walls are white, and the wall not visible in the picture is dark gray, matching the curtains. My concern is that it looks a bit dull.

Some friends suggested throw pillows in vivid colors, like red. I don't know, though, if they will work with a leather couch. The first idea that popped into my mind was to replicate the "Ctrl, Alt, Del" pillows from "Two and a Half Men," but maybe they are too dorm-ish. So, any ideas and suggestions? Thank you all!
