Room Therapy: Couple Decorating Conundrum

Dear CasaSugar,

I love the Casa Craving Challenges and enjoy throwing together looks for other people's rooms, but now I have a dilemma of my own! My fiancé and I are in the process of furnishing our future apartment, and he's turning out to be much pickier than I am! I think every style/color has potential, but I'm not really sure how to reconcile his tastes into something that looks good. Basically, here's the problem: He bought a gray sofa but wants all dark wood furniture. There are cream walls and parquet flooring. There are strict rules against painting and nails. The dining, living, and study spaces all sort of flow into each other, so we've even got different shades of wood going on with all the furniture there. The only thing I could think to do right now is get dark-blue curtains and very dark-blue carpet tiles. What are some color schemes that would work and could incorporate both the grays and browns to make a cohesive apartment? We're on a super-tight budget, too, but I'd love to see some through-the-roof priced looks for inspiration as well as some practical pieces for purchase. (I'm trying to avoid glass tabletops, also.)
