I think the fireplace and that wall color are gorgeous. Are you wanting a monotone look? Also do you want contemporary or traditional styling? Either way, furniture with legs will help the room feel more open.

Hi. I think the curtains are lovely, but the ones in the picture of the fireplace are too short. Can you lower the rail a little?
I think a modern sectional sofa will look great. You are lucky to have so much natural light. Get a sofa first as they are the hardest thing to buy and then pick up a much bigger rug. Either gray or beige sofa will tie in nicely with your curtains.

What color are the walls? Gray or beige. It's hard to tell exactly.

Ok. So once you get your gray sofa you will want to make it pop. I've attached a few pics of color schemes that I think would look great in your room.
As you will see, I'm thinking orange or yellow for cushions art work and vases etc.

You can use your fireplace to help inform your color palette. It's quite nice. I'd go with taupe (more grey than brown) for the sofa and cream for the arm chairs. Accents with coral and apricot would repeat some of the color variation in your stone fireplace. I would definitely look into replacing the fandelier. A semi-flush drum would support your contemporary leanings and a no nonsense tone on tone area rug would underline them

I might not be looking in the right place but where is your fireplace?
Anyway that said your home is set near lots if trees from the photo I can see... Have you thought about embracing features in soft furnishings from nature?
I enclose two photos. One being a cushion and the other a picture u liked on Houzz .

I think the color with sofa should be matched your hardwood flooring,beige color will be better,furniture color and flooring color will be similar and favorable.For pillow on the sofa,the white color is alright for you ?

The picture of a fireplace is bellow. To be honest I'm trying to avoid the woods that I live in. But do love the post.
Shanghai what do you mean if I'm ok with white pillows are you talking about adding them or the lighter once I have?

love the wall color and the drapes..... it seems from the photos that the drapes have some shimmer. What about picking a color from that shimmer to glam things up as pillow and chair accent. Soft cream or white chair with a grey sofa would be lovely along with shimmery accents if you like a glam look. And that starburst on the mantle.... thought about hanging it somewhere? It gets lost on the mantle... That kind of look would be great with the pendant drum posted above!

yes thats what i was thinking too about the starburst but everyone i asked liked it. but im thinking about putting it above my bed in my masters so i have to think of something to put there. can not find anything that would pop!
are you saying that i should change the fan to a pendant drum, i would love to do that but we have a fan there because of the fireplace it moves the heat to the other rooms

consider a more contemporary fan/light then? to replace the starburst, how about a rectangularr mirror with a silvery frame? might make the fireplace stand out even more.... and it is beautiful...or a couple of accent vases in a coral color?
