What Color Rug & Pillows to Complement Sofa Color?

Q: I let my boyfriend pick the color of this couch (larger photo below) and I absolutely detest it! I wanted to go for a more neutral color or a green to match the wall a bit better. The color of the couch has kept me from buying pillows, an area rug or lamps to go with it...any suggestions?

My boyfriend likes midcentury lines and colors that are influenced by 60's and 70's as evident in the selection of color for the sofa. I would love to send it back and have it reupholstered, but this couch was custom made and is too expensive for me to send it back to get reupholstered!!!

PLEASE HELP!!! What color carpet and pillows should I buy???
