Ideas to Warm Up New Living Room?

Q: Hello from Portland! My husband and I just bought our first house here and would love some advice from the incredibly helpful (and opinionated) folks on your site. I’m stuck on our living room. We put in dark wood floors, which we love, and painted the living room–but now I don’t know how to pull it together….

It feels cold and sparse right now so I need to find a way to warm it up. Any suggestions? I’m leaning towards adding some red/coral maybe? We’re also thinking of buying a chair to put in the corner and buying a nice long credenza to put the TV on, but I’m open to just about anything! Thanks in advance for your help!
