Curtain rods look too small causing them to appear bowed in middle, adding rings would improve look. Picture between windows doesn't work. Darker woven blinds would be better.

I think because your fireplace is natural brick with a dark wood mantle and your coffee table is also a darker wood, staining or painting the frames of the pretty mirrors above your sofa would look nice and tie everything together. Centering the mirror that's behind the chair and moving the lamp off to the left would be a good idea. Can you mount your flatscreen TV?

I would also replace the shade on the floor lamp with one like the one on your end table.

I agree with joanr, the rods are to thin for the weight of the curtains and the picture is hung too high and is too small. You are moving in the right direction just need a little tweaking.

Hi, I am going to put my 2 cents in for you. It would be really helpful if you took 4 pictures from every corner in the room, this gives a complete visual of the room so we can better help you with colour and furniture placement. You have the right idea for green on your upper walls but that colour of green is too weak and too clean for your space. You are mixing clean and dirty colours which is the problem. I would paint over the green with BM Brookside Moss 2145-3-. It will also complement your fireplace. I don't know if you plan on changing the fireplace but if you don't it has to be tied in with the room. You can accomplish this by bringing in more butterscotch or red orange accents, such as cushions on your sofa and the drapes. These seem to have a pink undertone and you should never mix pink and yellow/orange undertones, that too never works. I absolutely love the bench in front of the window, if you can move it on another wall and place your round mirror above it would look great! One last tip for you, the stained glass windows above your sofa are beautiful but this is an area where you want a neutral colour such as BM Manchester tan. Because there are 4 windows, you don't want a darker colour on the wall it ends up looking like strips. Happy Decorating, I hope I helped!

Thanks for your advice!!! What about BM Georgian green? I LOVE that color. I would like to paint the fireplace white to tie in with the rest of the room. What are your thoughts on that?

Good! Without the picture between the windows is much better. If you don't like the brick and dark wood of your fireplace you could paint the brick and the mantle and it would flow with the rest of the room. If you do like it you could add accents to compliment it. I will look forward to seeing the whole room. I hope you're having fun in the process of figuring it out.

Yes that could work, they are both yellow based greens. Here's what you do, you get test pots at BM and paint a poster board. Move the poster board around the room at different times of the day and you will have your answer. You may also have to get a slipcover for your chair. It looks like there are pink undertones to it and that won't go at all with any yellow undertones. Same thing for your blinds. Painting your fireplace will make a huge difference! It doesn't go with your style or colours so you're definitely on the right track there. Here is a picture of Brookside Moss, it's much lovelier than on the paint chip!

I'm sure it will. I've attached a couple of photos for inspiration. You don't have to stick with blue, you can use tangerine like your lamp, purple, yellows there's so much you can do, you just need to figure out the look you want. A great source is Pinterest and Houzz.com, you can get lost looking at pictures there!

The trim you buy at calico corners, probably Joann fabrics. I was watching hgtv and they decorated a room with soft colors like your room. The owner had furniture similar to your corner chair. They. Had mirrors with white painted frames. It was stunning. I thought of your room when I saw this episode. Pillows with beautiful fabric was a comment re pillows. She used lamps that were of glass or crystal, which is very popular right now. Maybe add the tassels on the drapery treatment and getting a lamp that has glass as the base would look stunning. This owners furniture was dated but it looked stunning just by the addition of beautiful fabrics, crystal, glass. I love the drapes as shown above.

If you don't replace the lamp then try for a new shade and maybe add a pretty little box on the table. I think the picture is a bit too small for the area. What about one of those starburst mirrors?

I absolutely love your room! I think what you are struggling with is the fact that you don't like the roman shades by themselves and then put the drapes over them to try and add interest. Am I right? If it were me, I would start over and put white plantation shutters in there. You have such nice architectural details in the wainscoting and this would make the room look more put together and crisp.

I would try a light shade. I think the check print on the pillow is too small. I can see a larger check or of course something else but definitely with the green in it and maybe a rectangle shape.

I like this pillow a lot. I cant wait to see what it would look like! I am wondering....you have that round mirror, have you tried it in other places? Just curious. What about purple as an accent color, not necessarily on the pillows, but somewhere. Just like in the picture above, or like the orange-red tulips? The photo you provided show the drapes and walls clashing and that is why I think people keep suggesting a change but I am assuming they blend nicely in person. On your fp mantle can you add candlesticks on each end as opposed to what is there. Maybe crystal/glass? It looks nice except the plate and vase to me don't give a finished look, but I am not real good at that stuff. I like symmetry which is nice but I am not good when suggesting non-symmetry looks. Your room is very pretty. I think the fringe on the drapes will be stunning. Many of my neighbors have that look and it is gorgeous looking from the outside of the house.

Where is the trim going? Is it the rope to go on the drapes? I like the mirror also and that is why I wondered if you tried somewhere else. It is a fun piece. I have a similar green in my dining room decorated by a highly esteemed designer in my community. I have a Persian rug beneath the table with some green and some blue, almost a teal blue....so maybe blue would be a possible accent color.

I did. That is when I thought I did not like the blue. I love the items above the sofa. I like the green checked pillow. The lampshade is too dark and sticks out with the color. I have a different green with coral in my family room, but I do not know if coral would work in your room and you may not like that color. I am trying to think of colors but drawing a blank. Someone suggested butterscotch. Your shade looks that color so then by adding more butterscotch would that work? What about a soft plum color?

The mantle is a beautiful wood. Try not to paint that. The painting over the tv does seem small and it fades into the wall. Maybe a narrow shelf like this Staging Ideas
or, while you don't have the same wall space something like this Kim Johnson- art

The room seems so delicate I would think a white shade. White and green are so pretty together. If it doesn't look good you can try something else. Maybe try and keep the color close to the color of your shades in the windows. Can't wait to see!

Go to Joann's for the trim, fringe would be better, (I got mine at Calico Corners). While you are at Joann's,check their decor fabric remnants for good deal on accent materials. I found several for $4/yd. Solarium has some bright designs and stripes you can use for accent pillows. I am using this in a couple of rooms. I think painting the brick white, and leave the mantle to match your other woods would look great. You might want to frame the art above the tv. Maybe wooden rods for your curtains, rather than metal. They could be b,town to tie in with other woods, or white to tie in with white woodwork. The wider poles would make the drapes look more custom made. Actually, the material I am showing, would look good in your room, to punch up the colors. Looking good so far!

Can I offer you a bit of advice on your curtains? Your rod really needs replaced, if possible. It is a telescoping rod that you have extended too far out--which is why it is sagging in the middle. A center support here would detract from the look--IMHO. If you must use a telescoping rod, get the next size up, or have your local iron fabricator cut you a wrought iron one the correct length. A non telescoping rod would look so much nicer--wrought iron, --or use a wood rod as suggested. You can easily cut that to fit your window yourself.
A no cost method to make your curtains look better--you need to dress them a bit. They need steamed or ironed so that they lay straight top to bottom. Start at the top and in several places, pull them down straight, all the way to the bottom--kind of making pleats, even though I see these are rod pocket panels. This will help their look immensely.
Trims--I might have missed whether you sew or not--I would NOT get that big twist cord for your curtains. That trim is a major pain to sew with, and most domestic machines cannot handle it. If you want to put a trim on, consider a tassel trim, or even a flat tape, inset about 2 inches from the leading edge. Weights sewn in are also a good suggestion above.

Just a budget idea since there are a number of comments about your curtain rods being thin....electrical conduit makes a great rod for $3, and it is sturdy enough for a 10 foot length without support...you can add finials to the ends....I wanted a simple look so I just added pipe caps for $1 and sprayed it all matte black...looks like you could use your existing finials....if you have a Lowes, they will cut the conduit in the pipe cutting area near plumbing supplies, not in the electrical supply area.

If you don't sew, you can get weights for the curtains that are like chains that can lay in the hem of the curtains. And you can iron the trim on. Ask for iron on hem tape at Joann's. all you need is an iron! The PVC pipe is a great idea for rods! If you want to use rings for the curtains, they work better with pinch pleated drapes. Yours are casement. Try steaming, as suggested, weights, and trim for the custom look. Happy Birthday!

I think your room is looking great. You have selected several great looking items. It reminds me of Ballard Designs and Pottery Barn. You can paint your shades/blinds if you want them darker..I would NOT paint your brick fireplace. You might regret it down the road. I personally don't like white painted brick fireplaces, they look cheap. If you must paint it , white wash it rather than paint white opaque.
I think a wider rod would look a lot more expensive too, and wouldn't give in the center. Are your drapes burlap, which is in right now? I love the Ikat pillow! Complementary colors are what decorators use as accent colors. Yellow /purple; orange/blue; red/green and variations of those colors hues are all complementary color schemes. Can't wait to see the complete room!

luvdecorating2, I like your shades like they are too. Someone else mentioned for you to buy darker blinds, that is why I said your could paint rather than buy more. I liked the Ikat pillow you posted a picture of very much. It has the green and the purpleish,brown color that would look great with your greens and yellows. If you use red as your accent color I like the fabric mainstreetschool suggested. I also like the abstract painting you hung between the two windows. A rusty red would tie in with your brick fireplace. I really love the Ikat pillow you posted though. You could make your owm pleats/folds in your drapes using the clip on rings. You can steam them while hung on the rods if they need it. Might not need to though. You can also use washers sewn in the corner hems for weights . Your room looks great!

I forgot to add... You can use a wider plastic PVC pipe on top of the rods you already have. I think it might already come in black. By putting them over your existing rods you will get the support the PVC won't give that is needed. I think something in a gray blue would be a nice accent. The blue items you posted a picture of are too light.

I would put those curtains up to the ceiling and if you can you can cut out the crown molding as a place for them.
