Looking for some ideas for the main wall of the living room.

Think one large piece, rather than a bunch of little things.

Agree either one large piece or add some larger pieces to your arrangement. Either way I think I would remove sconces and use elsewhere as they look too small.

IMO what you have is too symetrical and expected. If you were to add a great wallpaper behind it, it might work better. [houzz=Frames Wallpaper]
[houzz=allen + roth Blue Grid Map Wallpaper]
[houzz=Claire Gray/White Wallpaper]

If you want to keep your photo canvas as a focal point you can do something like this to frame it out. A wood tone look rather than the white. A table behind the sofa with a lamp and more objects to balance it.

I also feel a larger piece is in order. Or the grouping needs more to not appear so skimpy. Those sconces definitely need to go.

One very large piece that is at least two thirds or more of the size of the sofa

mrshollyc817, if you like the unframed look for your artwork, our images can be printed on metal, canvas or acrylic, in any size. Please visit our Houzz page to get some ideas. Thank you and enjoy!... Raisa

Not sure if you want to use what you have or completely start over, but since the arrangement needs to have more prominence, one way you could achieve this inexpensively would be to tape off a larger rectangle and paint using a contrasting color. This would make the pieces you already own look like they were all framed together. In addition, you could add a piece of molding around the painted area.

Unless you prefer a monochromatic style, I suggest one or two large, colorful paintings or prints/posters to add warmth and "light" to your wall. Artwork (both classics by the masters or new work by current artists) are available online for very affordable prices. I would also suggest moving the sconces (which are very nice) to a smaller, more intimate space. They look out of place and overwhelmed where they currently are.
