Jose, I see tags on the furniture...can you return any of the furniture? I think your end table and lamp don't work at all with your sofa. That sofa needs something really different and lamp/end table are way too bland. Also, the top of the end table should be much higher to the top of the sofa arm. Think about something like this...

Well, the table and lamp might look good in the bedroom or an office. Or you can give it to your grandmother! Just kidding. It's hard when your first starting out to know which way to go. Find some magazines with rooms that you like or look on line and then move slowly and always buy things with the understanding that they can be returned if it doesn't work after you see it in your home. Glad you like the pieces above. Start a notebook of pages from mags and take it with you when shopping. I think the store where you purchased the furniture should have worked with you and helped you make your choices better than they did.

Some fun colorful art on the walls could make a big impact. How about some travel posters like these? Don't settle for something blah or ordinary looking!

Jose, I love the color of your sofa. If you are thinking of adding more bright colors through wall art or, if you prefer neutral colors, you can visit our Houzz page to see some choices for art, with either approach. Enjoy and good luck decorating!... Raisa

Having seen your red couch, I don't think the blue I suggested will work; instead go for a pale grey (BM revere pewter would work well) This will allow your red sofa to take center stage and the espresso furniture to work as well.

Oh...I thought he said he was going to replace the furniture! I was going with warm colors to compliment the wood.

Some red options....

Perhaps you can find some colour inspiration here. You can adjust the RGB colours to get the colour you'd like to complement. http://design-seeds.com/index.php/search?hex=e33535

Having said that, looking at Angelina's paintings: how about a nice purplish or lilac colour?
