Need something near sofa, possibly a light.
Disregard the table behind-what this light suit this area?
Please help.

Not loving the lamp in this room…too white.

These nesting tables look as if the finish is like your coffee table, and a great buy. A set on each side of the sofa with blue lamps.

I like these lamps instead of something lighter blue…

Your art is hanging a little bit too high..lower it a few inches.

I think another accent chair would look great, too.

If you get another accent chair, put the blue pillows on it and something more colorful on the sofa.

Perhaps: bring life with Plant in corner near couch; Tactile conversation piece on coffee table, e.g. big piece of coral; Floor to ceiling window panels, and bamboo blinds; Complimentary color accents in poppy orange/pink shade, e.g. flowers, lampshade, another throw pillow that incorporates all the colors?

Just what I was going to say. A palm in the corner. Wish you had waited on the rug...is it too late to return? That would be a good place to add color and tie in with your picture.

That lamp isn't what you need for your room. Don't do more than one floor lamp in a small area.

You do need end table(s) and lamps. And one other rug to consider (the one you have would work in another room, no?)

I suggest floor to ceiling window treatments to give this gorgeous room a hug

You seem only to have room for your end table to fit in the corner comfortably. I think you have an opportunity to then do something much more interesting with a floor lamp to the right, per pics below. Your current table lamp seems to be weirdly angled; perhaps the chair might be adjusted for the lamp to be useful for reading?

How about replacing the picture on the wall with a random arrangement of a lot of pictures of your loved ones ? Also a rug with contrasting colors (similar to the pillows) would liven up the space.

Hi Teafortwo. This just to illustrate the warming effect of bringing another colour into the space and a touch of blue to the armchair. Oh, and flowers or a plant.

I agree on the window treatments and warming up the pallet with some soft hits of orange and red, in small doses. Subtle, keeping the airiness of the space.

I would consider a 3pc art grouping, breaking from just color to include some patterns that speak of movement as well. A happy collaboration between friends:) Also, a contemporary lamp would would add freshness to the traditional lines of the sofa and chair. Love the standing lamp with the ark & milk glass globe. It's a great room to work with!
