Try a bistro style!!
1) Place something like the table and 2 chairs pictured below on both the left and right walls with chairs facing each other, and both spaces with area rugs.
2) Paint the left and right walls a dove white with a soft gray baseboard .
3) Paint the wall with the window, the beam above the window, wall with the door and the beam on the left wall an accent color.
4) Get rid of the hutch thingy facing the door
5) Turn the sitting area underneath the window into a storage area.
6)Obviously change the wall decor and the chandelier to anything that would help brighten the room up.

I totally agree with @Brandibothe as far as the color scheme.

if you can, get rid of the window seat and put the couch there at the end of the room. Also a large mirror on the side wall would make the room look larger.

white wash the fireplace bricks. just a light coat of very thinned down paint will make it look like white brick which will make the room look bigger.

@lindabrennan, YES! I love the new look of your room and you are spot on! Our rooms are very similar so it is extremely helpful to see how you placed your furniture! Your room looks wonderful. Thank you so much and thank you to all for your comments and suggestions! It has been a tremendous help and gives me a great vision.

I think lighter, more contemporary furniture, a light colored natural (sisal?) rug, some green plants and art with lighter frames would make it look less heavy. I know its heresy, but I'd think about painting the fireplace or at least lightening the color of the mantle and using lighter decor on the mantle.
