Suggestions for tiny living room?

I have a small (1100 sq ft) house with three bedrooms and one bath. One small bedroom off of this living area is used as my office. I work from home.

I guess you would call my style sort of mid-century cottage. This is a very small (11' X 12-1/2') living room divided by three doors which I hope you can more or less see. I have not arranged the shelves above the love seat since taking down the Christmas decorations. Still thinking about that. The love seat is a sleeper for my brother when he's in town. My son (who is a senior in high school and will be going away to college next year, but coming home for breaks) and I have have two cats.

Maybe you can't see the little ottoman/foot stool with the serving tray on it. I plan to re-cover that, maybe in an orange. A friend is making an orange throw for me. The dining area, which you can't see in these photos, is burnt pumpkin. I've ordered a couple of throw pillows that are chintz with the sage and orange. Do I need a rug? If so what size, color, shape? Window dressing? (Keeping two cats in mind.) New windows (to go with the new windows in the kitchen that have a nice, wide sill which work beautifully for displaying)? Should I add white beadboard to the lower walls, which I have in the kitchen, bath, laundry? The shelves were added recently because the walls were just blank and I needed more area for displaying. Should I exchange the loveseat/sleeper and chair for a sofa/chaise? Any ideas would be appreciated.

I have another identical posting with images. I was having computer hiccups.

I would delete this one if I could figure out how.
