Need ideas ! I am still not happy with Decor

I have a living rm and dining rm combined, only 23'x15', and high ceilings, I am still not happy with the dining area especially, love the furniture though, cannot fit it in my kitchen, I love traditional, french country look, what is wrong besides light fixture,it should probably be a chandelier, the high wall beside the table is awkward, it separates to kitchen, I hung a large canvas art on it, not even sure of that anymore, I have been trying to get a inviting , elegant look, its still not right, is it too beige looking!, The living rm, is nice, cream leather couches,maybe the rug is too much in their,for the look I am after, I want both areas to compliment each other,without too much going on in a small space. any ideas, and pictures would be greatly appreciated!

Lovely furniture! I agree with you regarding the light fixture... I think you need something less bulky to balance out your furniture. Also, I think your cabinet might work better on the wall where your art is. From what I can tell it appears to be on the same wall as your fireplace? Lastly, if you are able to change rugs a simple rug with a basic print would compliment your furniture without making it appear busy. Just my two cents!!

I agree that the pendant over the dining table isn't right. It looks too modern for the space.

In your last picture, the dining area seems to encroach on the living area. Try going rugless in the dining room. The rug is a tad too small, and a tad too busy, and it crowds into the living space.

The fixture is from Quorum International... The Salento line. Your local lighting store should stock it or something similar.

I agree with everything lafemme705 said. I was thinking that you might want use more distressed decor on your dining table and mantel. The furniture is a more formal french style, so I think distressed candle sticks, vases, or finials would contrast well.

Agree with grover and lafemme - either sans rug or simpler rug as posted
I am also wondering if a simpler fixture would be a better option so as not to compete the current furnishings?
