You're right to wonder about those two examples. In both cases it wouldn't be wrong to use the order you're suggesting and say:
Ich muss vom Flughafen meinen Bruder abholen
Ich habe im Wohnzimmer ein schones Zimmer
Yet the other order is also possible, it all depends on the viewpoint... With places the order is a bit more flexible than with times, specially when the place describes the object and not the whole phrase. or also when it's a destination or an origin and not a location.
Sentence order is quite complex in German and many times several options are possible, so be patient and open and little by little things will become emore natural, you'll see.
