I would be happy with either one. I think that it will look nice as an accent on pillows and valance. Color dates things, but these items are easily and cheaply update able.

You wouldn't put that pattern on the outside ,so why not try putting the outside patterns to work on the inside?

One of the more popular living rooms on Houzz.

Neutral, but with a pop of contrast/pizazz in the pillows.

You'd rather have colors that 100% of the people can live with as opposed to an awesome color that 20% of the people love 80% hate.

having said that, I think we can get a little more bold in our colors choices by using them on pillows only and I'm working on an easily changeable valance as well.
I would go with #2 and then add solid teal throw pillows to the sofa. In the bedroom you could do a teal bedspread with yellow pillows to accent it. I like the houzz colors (just not the pillows in that pic) you posted.

I agree with Platokidd and prefer #1. I prefer a neutral background where I can add splashes of whatever color I happen to like best at a particular time and wouldn't want to be limited by the teal and yellow of choice #2

Here are a couple more pictures:
