Need help with guest room /TV room combo.

Our playroom/guest room functioned well for the kids with a Murphy bed and built ins for many years. Now that we're empty nesters, we've toned down the former bold color scheme to add calm sofistication to the guest room. Hubby really wants 2 chairs for TV watching. Ick! I hate to see the built-ins go because they hold my wrapping station and loads of storage. The chest of drawers is going with my daughter to her apartment, as will all the books, etc. on the shelves and counter. My style is pretty traditional, although this room has never been so.

Any suggestions on how all this can come together? Window treatments on French doors?

Not sure what you want out of this room. Do you want it as a tv room with storage? Is it just your husband's suggestion of chairs (I'm guessing recliners with cup holders) that's icky? Does it still have to do double duty as a guest room (e.g.is the murphy bed staying)?

Looks like a tight squeeze with bed almost touching the chair, so not much room for furniture unless you omit the bed.
