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.....

you have a very interesting collected, well traveled aestetic. what is missing is interesting archetectural elements in the room.

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 !
