How can I spruce up a dull apartment living room?

Hi ladies! So FI and I will be moving into an apartment together prob a few months before the wedding. Of course, I can't help but collect a few decorating items here and there ahead of time. It'll save us $$ later, right?? Anyway, I have these pillow covers/pillows.. The top cover is from Pottery Barn with a tan and muted green stripe and the bottom pillow is from Target. I also have a couple of pillow covers, again from PB, with a floral pattern in a muted green that matches the light green stripe. Idk what color rug or anything to put with these. I'm thinking we will prob be getting more of a tan couch as a foundation color and we prefer darker (or even distressed looking) wood, but bc we will be in an apartment, there's not much we can do as far as wall color etc. What other color would go with these pillows, or what color rug? I was thinking maybe something with a light blue or chocolate brown? I like PB style, but not sure what else...

I would definetly put some bright colors in there, yellow maybe? red is the obvious choice because green and red are complimentary colors, but it's too expected IMO. Some brighter blues would look nice too!

Yea! Yellow would be good. I thought the same thing about red being too expected. I like the colors in these pillows as a color palette idea...

I think yellow would be a fun pop!  Or yellow and red, even though red is really predictable...but it looks nice!
