Living room issue

To give some background, the tv is being removed this weekend..we just purchased a flat screen for over the fire place. I know that our choppy sectional is too big for the space but budget does not allow for a new one. Any thoughts on how to brighten things up? Especially window treatment ideas. Thanks!

Well, it looks like to me you need a little color. How about some coral/orangey pillows and and a throw over the armless piece on the corner.

Plants for starters. Pillows that pick up the color of the rug. Accessorize tables also in colors from the rug.

Totally agree.... plants and colour. Also that mantle shelf could have some bigger, interesting pieces on it. Pick things that you love that express something about yourself.

These might be pretty with your rug. Green would tie in nicely

If you find some artwork that you love, take a color or two from that for accessories and window treatments. Hang your curtains (if you go that route) higher and wider than the windows. Do you have a HomeGoods near you? They have GREAT pillows that will liven up any room. Add some colorful accessories and you are off to a good start. Nothing wrong with your sectional. Looks comfy!
