Suggestions needed for small, open family room with red wall.

Shawn MinyetteDecember 2, 2012
Hi, any suggestions please. I have a small family room that is open on two side to other areas and one main wall leading up stairs which is oddly shaped so I made it my accent wall. I am in need of help with other suggestions for example above the tv seems naked and so does the right side of the tv. Drape suggestions. Enclosed several angles,Thank you.

You have a lot to work with. First, I'd remove all of the window treatments and do dark woven wood blinds in the LR and the DR. I'd paint the walls "craft white". It looks white with an ever so slight hint of yellow. Then I'd paint the tv wall a chocolate brown. But, I'd get a low sleek credenza for the tv wall and put the current tv stand on the left of the loveseat and put the fish tank there. (Center the loveseat with the three windows). Pick ONE wall to group your family photos and remove the small accessories and frames. Groupings make more impact and avoid visual clutter.

If you want an honest opintion, I don't think anything looks "naked", I think it all looks like too much, sorry. Definitely replace all your window treatments with something newer and modern, like Darzy suggested. I would want shorter and wider lamps. [houzz=
