Place looks plain. Any ideas would be much appreciated.

I would like any ideas on what I can add or do to make the place look better.

The coffee table you see by the window wouldn't work with the couch and not much space between the couch and tv as it is. I did have wall art but doesn't go good in my place.

In dining space on the left wall you can place a big bright painting/picture. A big clock will go well on the wall back to sofa. also you can add green plants at the corners.

Thank you for your input. Do you know of any good website for buying paintings?

Are you renting or buying? I would change the light over the dining table, it's dated and hung too high. I like your rug and sofa, very nice. Perhaps you could paint the walls a warmer color? Also, the rug under the dining table is too narrow. If you were to get a wider one you would avoid the chair 'half-on' 'half-off' problem.

I am renting so i can't change the light but I agree it looks dated. Thank you for the advice. I was looking at paintings and now I will also look for another rug online. I was also thinking of getting a table runner.

A table runner is a great idea! Perhaps your landlord will change the light for you, that's the best part about renting! If not, you could modernize it by hanging strands of small, transluscent beads from it. I love how neat and clean you keep your place, good job.

You definitely could use some colour. Even if you are renting you can add some accents. Pillows, curtains, art. The light fixture could have a large drum surrounding the fixture. It would update it and hide it. For a table runner, look for solid placemats and line them down the center of your table. Inexpensive art can be found by purchasing art posters on line or keep your eyes open at thrift stores.

I agree. There is a LOT of white wall here, including the 5th wall (ceiling). Have fun with colour! Buy a big artwork that you love and hand it on the big wall by the table, then pull the colours out of it to work with. Have fun! I wouldn't sweat the light fixture. There are some good ideas for updating it. If you get the rest of the room working the light fixture won't stand out so much....

Found this on artGalore.ca just as an example.... Pull a creamy wall colour from here and use greens and yellows for accents.
