This room needs one more accent color and the photo is a bit dark to see clearly.

Also needs pattern rather than all solids

Lots more pattern! which makes a room seem personal. Teal area rug 9 X 12; white and teal drapes to lighten things up, and a black and white ottoman - mostly white with a graphic black print (You can put a black lacquered tray to cover most of the ottoman - convenient and the patterns won't clash). Non matching dark wood end tables with mercury glass lamps from Pottery Barn.

Look at this photo and how it is done in layers of both colour and pattern. This room needs this idea. Take your solid teal toss, and then add a small stripe in teal, cream and chocolate or gray... Then add a floral with those colours, then a throw. The drapery could be a pattern or a band of muted wider stripes in similar colours. Add another pop of colour finally in a fuchsia or deep purple or a green in some other accessories.

I think some coral would look really nice. Maybe even an actual coral pattern.

I really like the coral pattern idea. I'm thinking of getting 2 pillows with patterns that are just coral. And maybe some accesories that are also coral. I like the stripe idea too I will try to find something like that. Any other ideas would help! Or certain suggestions from Ikea, walmart, jysk those are the major stores here in my town.

I would definitely get a fun rug and fun throw pillows. No one seems to have suggested a coffee table yet? If you get a bold teal colored rug, I would try to find a farmhouse style white coffee table for a sophisticated glam look. New drapes as well! They seem to blend into the walls right now. Good luck!

I love teal. It goes well with many colors, but my favorite is an orangy red.

Thanks! Ill check those pillows out. The rug is really nice but we already bought the solid teal rug so I have to use the one we already have.

It seems that the larger couch may fit proportionally better in front of the window where the smaller couch is now. Then you could add another chair by the smaller couch in a teal/coral? color

From what I can see you and I have similar taste. I have not finished mine yet, but you can see from the picture I have used Green with the teal which works well. I am introducing pattern when I recover the two footstool/ottomans and in the cushions as well. Where the gallery wall is now I plan to put up a long shelf with a piece of wall decor below it and the gallery will go on the wall behind the smaller sofa. I think some of these ideas would suit your layout. I think the use of a coffee table and a corner table, which would sit next to your smaller sofa, would work also. I hope I have helped. All the best with finding what suits. I am in Australia so I can't help regarding sourcing what you need to purchase.

I like the pillow. Adds a new warm color. Adds some life and brightness.

I feel like art is always a great way to add punctuation and character to a room. There is a new AWESOME iPad app called ARTtwo50. You can take a picture of your space and see original art virtually hanging in your room. The art is pretty great, and all work is $250 for an original piece of art which is pretty good. After you find ones you like you can compare them and get feedback. There;s all genre's and you are able to see a variety and then decide what fits you and your lifestyle.

I just added the orange pillow on the left. What do u guys think?? Should I get a second one for the sofa and move the one on the right to the loveseat. That way theres 2 of main pillows. Would like to hear opinions. Im thinking of also getting this side table.

A coffee table or ottoman? The rug should go under the sofa and love seat, too p perhaps a graphic pattern on the rug. What is on the wall facing the sofa? Since there is a pass-thru behind the sofa and a window behind the love seat, that wall would be a great place for the art that some have shared above.

I would get the same pillow for the other side to balance it out evenly.

Maybe it's because this is my favorite theme but I see an ocean theme here. Coral, blue, white. Do you have any interest in going that route? I have that in my living room with the same colors but opposite. My couch is a butterscotch leather couch. Teal pillows and white starfish in a bowl, shells, coral reef prints. I love it.

I think the rug is too dark. Just my opinion. A pattern rug a bit lighter? Some floral or geometric ? Here's a gray one that works too.

Definitely getting there! FYI On the rug, you can totally work with it! But you could also layer another light rug on top of it if you wanted to try a pattern or other color.

I like the one behind it in the photo better because the background is more of an off white like your sofas.
