I have the different curtains up, because I was trying to look at the different ones at the same time. :(

No, no no no no. If you want your room to pop, paint it a muted soft blue and put up the vanilla curtains. You need color. http://www.sherwin-williams.com/homeowners/color/find-and-explore-colors/paint-colors-by-family/SW6485-raindrop/

What you need is 95" panels in a rich fabric...paisley or tone on tone for texture. Your kitchen is so beautiful that you need to carry the richness into the living room. White or cream add no visual interest or contrast. I would also increase the size of the rod. Tie in with a rich colored area rug and pillows. Make sure your lamps have good weight as well as your accessories.

You need to develop a color story for your house. The more you can stay within the palette, the more you house will flow. In the photos, the cabinets seem mahogany finished-kind of a red toned wood. Your sofa is neutral. With reddish or even cherry (orangeish) cabinets, i would tend to recommend a color palette that was warmer/autumn (like cinnamon, straw, barn red, leavened with green). The living room might get a
If they are just brown that photographed off, i would go cool with pale aqua blue walls and bright citrus greens layered in camel tones of many different shades. Can you go shopping on art.com and post a link to a piece of art you love? Tell more on cabinet wood tones.
