How To Use Bold Colors with Dark Brown (Almost Black) Couch?

Q: My boyfriend just moved in and he brought the Ikea Karlstead couch in dark brown. I am in love with this red & white rug (below) and think it would look great with any color. My boyfriend is obsessed with "accent walls." I put it in quotes because I don't really think he knows what it is - probably caught a bit of a design show while I was watching. Now we're looking for the color for his "accent wall". I would love to do something bold and bright but can't figure out how to pair multiple bold colors with dark brown/almost black. Any suggestions? Cheers!
