I don’t know why, but I think silhouttes of faces in profile would look so good over the chairs in the wall. Like if you have kids, or even you and your SO in silhouette facing each other and framed nicely.

More artwork or photos! I love art in every room! You can start an art wall of smaller pieces or a photo wall.

MrsJR919 :  I saw these in Crate and Barrel today. They are copper looking wire with wood slices.

julies1949 :  I have seen these online and thought they were nice. They would go well with the living room decor.

MrsJR919 :  Love your wall color!  Regarding the space, it just needs to be anchored a little bit.  Even though you have two beautiful chairs with the table, they still look a little lonely…as does the bookshelf.  

My first instinct was to lay the bookshelf on its side and put it behind the two chairs, and using the accent table somewhere else.  Put the lamp on the bookshelf, style with some good books and a few family photos and anchor it all with a rug. See photo for an idea of how it can warm things up.  And it doesn’t necessarily have to be centered on that wall–you can move the sitting area closer to the window since you’ve got the doorway there coming into the room on the other side.  And..the wall behind the chairs is the perfect place to start a gallery wall!

Upon another look, i don’t think your bookshelf can be turned horizontally because it has feet–unless they can be removed, but hopefully you can see where I’m going.  

Also attached a pic of a gallery wall for inspiration.  It’s a little over the top, but I love it!  

If you’re not wanting to move much around I’d start with a rug and see how that anchors the space.

Be sure and come back to show us what you decide!

Have some photos you like printed and framed. 8×10 or larger, preferably. You can get pretty nice frames with mats on amazon for not too much.

MrsJR919 :  Having seen the last pic you posted, I would not choose the metal and wood wall hanging from Crate and Barrel. You can have too much of a good thing. You already have two leaf prints over the sectional, and I now realize the print on the chair is also a leaf print.

 

Don’t be afraid to hang something off center. You could do the reverse of the pic below if you want to add a plant in the corner.

ETA I just realized the wall art in this pic is a leaf print too! Choose someing else.LOL

Looks like the perfect space for a gallery wall!  I think the space is missing direction.  What are you suppoesd to do over there?  Its a bit out of the way to feel included in the main seating area.  Is it for reading?  Intimate convo?  Drinking coffee in the AM?  You may need to rearrange the furniture in the room before deciding what to do.  Arranging the chairs in a L would make convo easier, Putting them right next to each other with an ottoman in fromt would be better for lounging.

If you were going to leave the current arrangement I would… 

– place a buffet cabinet or dresser behind the chairs or a low horizontal bookcase

– Tall green plant in the left corner, either on a 2ft plant stand, or a tall tree

-Adding a tall leaning mirror will reflect more light into the room

-small green plant on side table with lamp

– swap lamp +Table for a floor lamp and two end tables

-Basket under the table with blankets and throw pillows

– A bright lumbar pillow in a contrasting pop color in each chair

– hang more art and pictures.  Even another mirror.

Maybe a clock, something like this, just simple:

Or one of these on either side is fun:

Or just one long picture across the wall – they have a bunch of different panoramic canvases:

Wayfair tends to be hazardous for my wallet lol

Home Goods is also great to wander around and find things. (Maybe TOO many things!) Usually their art/mirrors/decor is super affordable.

I would suggest some type of greenery. Maybe something like this –
