You could hang the tv where the picture and shelf are now, and get a nice console to put under it for all the a/v equipment. Jasper TV Console with Two Audio Cabinets

Also, an area rug in front of the sofa will make a softer landing for the little one! Cheshire Area Rug I

Yes, an area rug will help define the space, too. Make it a large one. Pull the furniture away from the walls, and have at least the front legs of your furniture on the rug.

Are those double doors your front entrance? Assuming so, it would be nice to create the effect of a foyer. Can you move the lounge with the chaise to the kitchen wall and put some low shelving along the chaise to divide the foyer from the lounge. Then move the lounge under the mirror to where the chaise lounge is now and put the TV where the mirror is with an entertainment unit like Bobbi suggests.

Being the king of klutzes, I am cringing at that exposed shelf and counting bruises, but the lounge under it could keep it safe.

It doesn't look like the room gets much light so you would need soft colour on the walls. Is that a dining room going off the lounge area? You would have to take that into consideration when choosing colours.

So far the room is quite plain so I am thinking a large bold patterned area rug would lift the room and then paint the other room in that colour - example in orange

The double doors lead to the back patio...I did get a bold area rug..off to the side is more of a "breakfast nook". I have a bar there..I will post pics soon.
Thanks again for the help..looking forward to hearing more!

Paint would provide the most immediate change to the feel of the space. Looks like you have a fairly neutral palate of colors. Here are some ideas. I agree that an area rug would help to anchor and define the space.

I like the paint idea photos for you. In looking at window treatments, I would create for you a relaxed pleat pair of curtains that would mount out on the walls to either side of the door opening far enough out so when open they would clear the door and could be closed for privacy and warmth. Fabric always warms a room. I also notice that you can see the eating area from the family room so I would put coordinating top treatments over the windows in that area.
