Need to replace this tapestry

I am changing the accent colors in my family room from reds to blues. I need to figure out what to replace this tapestry with. My furniture is neutral and transitional. The room also has a vaulted ceiling. (Tapestry was hung over a smaller tv which is why I looks too long).

Here is an example of a larger, more graphic blue / beige piece of art.

Blue beige may work. This great piece is way to large for my 18' x 20' room.

What about surrounding your tv/ console cabinet in something like this ( a smaller version of course)?. You need a more substantial look for this wall. The speakers that are currently sitting on the floor could tuck neatly inside the unit?

Sorry, forget my suggestion. I can see it would not work after viewing your last photo.

Carole, I am making some window treatments in blue and white, I have a lot of accent pieces that I'm changing out from red to blues, adding a blue and white chevron area rug under coffee table, pillows, etc.

Anything over the tv would be too high next to the fireplace. It would be better to put more emphasis on something over the fireplace.

I agree with Lydia. The focal point should be the fireplace and it could use a little zing! Maybe a vertical more dramatic mirror or artwork there and something more understated above the TV. I'm looking for suggestions to send!

Keitha,I have already begun taking my room apart that's what the fireplace looks so dull.

Carole, I had already thought about that. That may work also.

A few mirror ideas.... Sounds like you are trying to get away from the traditional look that u have now. Can u snap a picture of drapery fabric? Is it floral, stripe, etc...

Some artwork that might also work to bring out the blue?
