We’re one week into our new home and I’ve already done quite a bit lol we have painted the living/dining room and now Im starting to furnish it. The first picture is what the room looked like from the previous owner. I am not a fan of peach, so we painted the room a warm light grey. The 2nd picture is how i have set up my couch, rug, and coffee table. The TV/media unit is the exact match for the coffee table. Also theres a picture of what my new dining table will be with my dining chairs.
ANYWAYS, my question is…. you can see from the old picture that the previous owner had a fireplace that kind of split up the room nicely. That fireplace went with the previous owner and I want to add something there to split up the room as well. I’m thinking of a small sofa/console table with a mirror above it. But, which colour do you think will work??? I’m thinking either white to match the trim or maybe even black to pop. What do you all think???

I suggest creating a reading area, very minimal but comfortable. You have a scandinavian/industrial vibe going on. To keep within that style, these are good options:
either of these side tables:
To accomodate books, these from Umbra are great; I use them at home and they provide much flexibility and are very sturdy. Additionally, they make great use of available space. They come in small, medium and large:

Love the new wall color. Your sofa and area rug go perfectly.
First of all, I would turn either turn your area rug 90 degrees, or consider using it under the dining table if it is big enough and get a new one for the living room. The area rug really should be large enough so that at least both front legs of any living room furniture are on the rug.
Can you also pull your sofa away from the window wall so there is room for an end table and lamp? Moving the sofa down the long wall abit will also help use up that space between the living and dining rooms.
The only seating you show in your living room is the sofa. I would get a couple of comfortable upholstered chairs that swivel so they can be extra seating for the living room but also used in the dining room when you need extra seating.
Place a small accent table between the two chairs and a bookshelf along the wall where the fireplace was.

I would go with a mini bar set up, or replace the fireplace. They come in a variety of styles and sizes, as well as price points. I love your furniture, and I do like the way the old owners had their place set up (cant see the full view of your set-up 🙂

Love your style, and I agree on the mini bar–perfect spot between dining and living room!
