It looks like the function of this room in mainly entertainment. That looks like a screen on the wall facing the sofa. I would move into the direction of what the room serves mostly and then wrap in some thing else to add some warmth and personality to it. The fist thing I thought of was art. You have that left wall that is perfect for a large piece that reflects your home/life/family. Search the galleries, festivals or commission a piece from someone local that you like. They can work with you on colors to infuse into the piece. The next thing I would do is end tables, atleast one and take the glass table out and put in an ottoman that can double as a footrest/table top with a tray for snacks should you have guests. Hope this helps. Nice colors in there, very airy.

It's the wow factor (or no focal point) that is missing. What is the gray area? I say paint each "end" walls the orange of the carpet, and maybe a punch of orange on a sofa pillow. Also, lower any art that isn't eye level. Great place! That is a wow. :)

The walls and floors are the same color. I would paint or redo the floors...painting may be the easier and cheaper option. Also the rug is way to small for the space.

Agreed about the rug. A much larger feature rug with something like a geometric pattern in some punchy colours would do the trick. The layout seems to be fine for its function. Go big!

I agree, paint the back wall that has the t.v. A pop-out color to make it a focal point that draws the eyes towards it..

A larger rug will do the trick! Here are some options:

Would you consider some drapes on either side of the big gray shade on the wall? Hung high, hanging straight, maybe a cream with a gray chevron on them, big pattern?

The artwork above the TV are competing for attention. Can the art be moved elsewhere? Also perhaps a floor lamp will give the space a softer feel rather than the overhead spot lights? A square timber side table next to the sofa would also add another layer of interest when you first look into the room. Place a vase of flowers on it too which you can change with whats in season for colour balance and variety.
