So, a question.
 
I have a gold wall in my living room and a red wall in my bedroom. I love it.

The problem is I hate my carpet, and I'm just in an apartment, so I can't
"rip it up" and replace it.

What sort of throw rug should I use for my living room?
Would it be silly to use something Red in my living room?

Putting a throw rug over carpet is a good way to liven up
the area, if you can't rip up the rug.
It would only be silly to
add an area rug with red in it -- if it didn't tie in with the rest
of the colors in the room.

If you post a pic of the area, maybe we can give you some ideas
about area rug size etc...

Just remember that in interior design a little red goes a long way. You could put down a red rug in the gold walled living room I suppose but you may grow tired of it quickly.

Something with a red to match what you have in it would work. They also sell custom dye kits where you can take a neutral remnant and add what color and pattern you want to it with through stencils and things.

If you are hate your carpet and you can not replace it then you can repaint your carpet with your favorite color.

I seriously doubt her landlord would allow her to paint the carpet... If it was me I would be pissed.
Area rugs are a good option, as well as incorporating the color through lamps, throw pillows, slipcovers, throw blankets, paintings, things like that. Red and gold make a good color palette, and also mix well with shades of brown.
