@remodel1forme, I'd suggest going with an overdyed rug to ground the space and give it some depth simultaneously. I, too, agree that it would make for a fantastic reading space/library. And definitely you want to bring the furniture closer together -- having it all pushed up against the walls makes the space seem incongruous.

Grove, this is funny. I try to proof read my copy. Funny how the mind can operate independently sometimes. I meant to say "illustration."

I would start by moving the wing chairs toward sofa so they flank it. Then slipcover all the pieces in a creme or neutral. You need a coffee table. How about an old trunk? White shutters on the window or side panels. Please get rid of the swags. New art, new lamps.
