I am not a fan of tv's on mantles, but I know many are. If you don't put the tv there, you need to lower the art over the mantle substantially--and the one behind the sofa as well. They are way too high.
Are you planning to keep the shades on the windows? I would have new stationary panels made, installed on a rod above the arch. This would be a great look in your room with the high ceilings. Pull the green chair into the conversation--and the lamp too.

Take a picture of the whole room, not just pieces. I might rethink where the sectional is now.

I think I would try moving the sectional on the big wall with the arm part on the other side. It looks like you can play around with the sectional for the best seating and tv viewing. Making it more like a "U" and then putting the green chair where the arm piece section is now. We always tell people to get a bigger tv unit but in your case, I might agree with Eileen. It is so big for your space but I would hate for you to get rid of it right now. The picture over the fireplace needs to come down too. Nice bones to the room.

I think I would ditch the hutch and put the tv over the mantle in this case. Then pull that green chair into the mix like I mentioned earlier. Use a cool geometric print on the window treatment. Maybe switch out the cell shades for woven wood shades? Add some throw pillows to match.

We never advocate installing TVs above fireplaces if the room is to be used for any significant TV viewing. The extremes of the acceptable height range for us are eyes level with the top of the tv at the lowest and vice versa. This has to be determined with reference to height of family members and the seating specified. Mounting too high makes viewing for extended periods uncomfortable and detracts from the sense of immersion.

I would loose the cabinet also. I am good with TV's above a mantle. I like enjoying them simultaneously.

Maybe you just need a more contemporary unit for the tv. I think the one you have looks out of place with your cool furniture. Then you can keep that art over the mantle--lowered of course..

I'd put an inside mount roman shade there. (does it produce glare for the tv?)
