I wanted to redecorate/rearrange my furniture but I don't have any idea how to do it...

What a nice bright space! Great natural light. You first need to replace the dated verticle blinds with chrtain panels. The experts on Houzz taught me that a year ago and it is such an amazing change!!

Are you open to painting? I would get a much larger rug and set the feet of the sofa on the edge of the rug. Is there a chair in this room?

Is the wall the tv is on the only cable source? If so I would keep the couch across from it. Can we see more pictures of the room?

I'm not sure if you're looking to just rearrange or if you have the budget for new purchases. The arrangement seems fine. Here are a few suggestions from what I can see in this photo: The rug is too small for the space. It should be large enough so that the front legs of the sofa fall on top of the rug. It looks like you have a 6x9 and you need at least a 8 x 10 size rug. Also, the coffee table is undersized as well. I like your wall color. I would paint the white moldings to match the wall.

Lower the mirror to about 5" above the sofa back and start searching for art to replace it since it reflects nothing interesting or beautiful.

GREAT advice already given. The only thing I will add is that the coffee table needs to be 18 inches from the couch. It is too far away to be used.
