I wouldn't redesign the whole thing. How about just removing the soffit and carrying the face and niches all the way to the top?

YES you can get where you want to go with the first inspiration photo with what you have....with only small modifications.
By cutting off the right side of the soffit unibrow and allowing the right alcove go to the ceiling, the soffit looks shorter (did not change the height in the photo, but see how it now looks less massive.) Also by cutting the bottom step short so that the left side is in alignment with the brick, it debulks the lower section too.
Hope this helps!

I would keep the curtains. To draw out the notes of gray, blue and ivory, I would introduce pillows like these. They are not cheap but if you can sew, it's easier to look for similar fabric and knock up a few pillows.
Royal Garden Pillow
Sea Flower in Navy, Sky Blue and Sage
Ivory "Doily Edge" Pillow

You'll never get the Wow factor with a mirror over your sofa. You need some art. Something about 2/3 the length of your sofa. Even vintage posters will give your place some personality. Here are some ideas.

...Why stop at one mirror ...when you can have more ...lots can be found at junk shops ...car boots thrift stores
Maybe not this many ... Or as much blue / Teal
In the room ... Maybe you could move .....
your mirror over a little ....Sorry mick50 I mentioned moving the mirror !!!
Put some pictures with frames matching your mirror ..on one side of the mirror
Or black framed ones.......with black and white pictures in them
Just saw this picture and thought of your mirror
Yes as said .. Your room has a great start

Adding jewel tones to your room - in your pillows, lamp, or other decor - would be a wonderful complement to your magnificent wall color. Also, a round mirrored coffee table would repeat the shape of your mirror and expand the visual space of your room. I think your existing pillows are a bit "heavy". Extending your geometric side panels all the way to the corner might also add some additional drama to the room. Enjoy - it is going to be lovely!

However, Downton Abbey is a PBS show and there are NO COMMERCIALS.

I'd paint and do the addition if needed, and add to the kids college fund instead of removing and replacing the siding and stone.

Remove the shutters.

Step the addition back a bit from the front wall of the house if possible so it does not look like a continuation. This will provide a bit of interest as the roof plain will change, and will eliminate the need to match the stone.

This is the first tiny house I've seen that I could ever see myself living in — it's very alluring. She did an absolutely brilliant job - her home is cozy, smart and beautiful.

I love how some of us can be nonchalant about reselling value and do things as if they would never change (no added significant other moving in, no kids, no family or friends sleeping over) and as if they will never need to move and sell. I wish I could be so carefree.
