I love your living room! The only thing I would change is to get rid of the sliding door and put French doors in with a dark wood stain and real mullioned glass panes, and some kind of sheer panel treatment on the back window to soften it without cutting out the light.

I think a softer earth tone on the walls, would work better with your furniture and flooring and allow the artwork stand out. Draperies or roman shades give light control and privacy. A taller lamp on the end tables would look better as well... I like crystal lamps because they beautiful and blend well to many furniture styles. I am posting a pair of lamps from and a paint from Benjamin Moore as examples.....

Warmer paint crown molding and perhaps an eclectic dark ceiling fan.

The walls sould be a more beige colour. They look yellow to me. Sorry, but I really dont like the art work in this room. Its too much with everything else.

Im in accordance with previous comment, you have a nice mix of possessions etc but little or no cohesion. Architecturally its a little weak and a bit 1980s I would suggest cornice,fireplace perhaps and a more subtle wall colour. I love the traditional pieces , but would add some modern touches.French doors are an excellent suggestion along with smart plain curtains and a Roman blind on the other window. Cover the two french chairs in a plainer modern fabric. Two larger taller lamps either side of the Sofa , as above suggest, but big! I would move the bench and replace with two armchairs in a neutral colour . refer to my page for traditional seating groups in above style. Good Luck and warmest regards Malcolm

I agree the wall colour seems off for the furniture The large art piece near the armoire works with the current colour but not the furniture. Find it a new space. It seems there are too many unrelated accessories in this room. Take it all out and start adding back. It would be better to display a few significant pieces rather than a jumble of things.

Carpet looks small and running the wrong direction. I agree architecturally weak. Don't care for the wall color...doesn't relate to carpet. Table lamps too short...use on sofa console instead. Remove that small object from top of armoire. A larger LIGHTER BRIGHTER carpet would do wonders for this room and update it !
