Think you're off to a good start, but, IMO, the dark trim is too heavy. Think about lightening to a coordinating almond color with the walls. A green silk panel would work to finish off the room with a little iridescent bling. :)

Scoot the rug under the legs of the sofas.

With all the color you have so far I wouldn't add an accent wall. A pale grayish blue will blend with the furniture without overpowering the room.

Not taken out, but turned...can't tell if it's rectangular.

IMO, I would paint all the walls the light green that you have, paint the trip the light mauve or the bluish color on your rug, if you keep the rug in there. I would then switch the couches and leave the chairs. As for decoration; family photos on wall behind chairs, a black iron clock with the branches around it and light mauve colored gems on the end accented with pictures or sconces behind the big couch, the long wall I would get the wall decor sayings that displays family beliefs or like the live, laugh, love, faith, hope, family, God bless this house, etc. with mile stone photos of each family member or that meant the most to you.

I think you have a lot of color going on and that you could complement the bold colors with a curtains in a neutral color from the rug (I think I am seeing a grey in the Moroccan-inspired pattern?). With the wall art, I think a large metallic framed mirror above a couch would really make your space seem bigger. And of course, pictures of loved ones are fantastic additions to any art gallery :)

Seeing from other angle, with accent walls painted, I changed my opinion...current carpet is too busy...gray or beige Moroccan inspired would look nice.

Just goes to show you how much light can affect color.

Your rug and colorful pillows won't be too much unless you add more colors on the walls. Stay more toward the neutral for wall color and no accent wall is necessary in such a small space already loaded with color. Otherwise, walls, pillows and rug will be fighting for attention. Pull them together with a quiet color.
