I would start with the bones.
Add crown, wainscoting and consider mortar washing the fireplace. From there you can paint and start to see a big picture easier.

If you can swing it - I would see if the original wood floors are still there or consider purchasing new wood floors!

What style of furnishings do you like? If we could see a floor plan with measurements of the room, it would help to offer advice on space planing...furniture and arrangement.

#1 for me would be removing the wallpaper and curtains.

Decide on flooring ... will you be replacing the carpeting?

Agreed, remove wall paper, carpet, and ceiling fan. Start by gathering images and ideas that you would like the living room to look.
