How to can I make my house more cohesive?

So I have a very open concept downstairs. As in my entire downstairs is just one huge rectangle with no dividers. I'm having some trouble decorating it.

I just painted my cabinets this super bright teal/turquoise. It's definitely out there, but I really like it. It brightens my kitchen a ton which I need because my walls are a like a darker beige, which I hate but the whole house is that color so I am not changing it. Now I'm having trouble creating a cohesive theme with the color though. Any tips? I'm adding pictures of my entire downstairs in the comments.

I'd say that my preferred style is messy and colorful. I like bright things, cozy spaces, and I like kind of busy things. I'm also a fan of farmhouse decor over modern, but I don't like tropical.
