I am an artist....not sure if you are getting new sofas and such...but the art behind the sofa is too small for the wall/space. My eyes do not like that wainscoting level with the door frames...it is "busy" and distracting...I'd take that down and paint the whole wall a solid color. A lot here depends on your budget and if you are changing furniture...more info would be great!

Is this your furniture? Or have you just bought this house?
If it is your furniture, are you planning on getting new? And does the TV go in this room?

I would get a new sofa and 2 matching club chairs for starters.

I would remove the tan line going around the top of the room and the blue strips over the windows.

I would replace that hanging pendant with more of a shallower but wider drum shaded fixture.

What about one sofa and two chairs? A nice rug, coffee table, painting the entire wall, including the picture rail, in one colour, painting the trim white...
Do you like any of the combinations I picked for you? (if you don't, that's okay... ). They go from top to bottom, so the left column is one suggestion (chair and sofa should be same colour though) and the right another. Coffee table can go with both.

Chloe Fabric Sofa, Stone
Loring Sofas
Chloe Fabric Velvet Metro Living Room Chair, Ivory
Sweep Upholstered Armchair
Gold and Silver Modern Rug from Safavieh
Ultimate Shag Rug, Cookies & Cream
Spindle Coffee Table

Thanks for your reply, I have put lights in upper cupboards but I feel it needs a different floor, wall color, back splash and perhaps a change to the shelf above the oven. the kitchen leads into the family room which has the same tiles.

The fireplace would be great if you refaced with a stone that extended floor to ceiling. It would give some depth to the room and create a focal point. Looks like it is a great space- we're excited to see the finished product!

Yes, remove the strip at the top part of the wall and I think you need drapes (not operable, just decorative) to soften the space once you get new furniture. Full length drapes starting way above windows and to the floor.
