You didn't ask, but you seem open to suggestions. Would you consider changing the rug?
It feels both too small and too big for the space. The rug is too narrow and seems too small for the living area where your couch is. It looks like a lot of gap between the edges of the rug and the walls. The rug also seems too long in that it appears to span two separate areas: the living area that is anchored by the couch/wall and whatever that empty space is in front of the window.
It's hard to know the full context of your apartment with the limited pictures. However, from the picture you provided, the rug looks a bit awkward to me, almost like a giant runner. Rugs can help define spaces. I'd suggest a different size rug that doesn't extend past the wall where the couch is. Maybe a rug to define your dining area and then leaving the wood floor exposed in that open space in between.
I'd also suggest pulling the sofa off the wall just a bit. I know it's a small space and every inch counts, but giving furniture a little breathing room off the walls can really help an overall look.
