Choose a color pallette you like first.

Then choose a nice bold, but lighter color for painting the walls.  Or alternatively buy some large canvases in a set of three and paint them in a “washed effect” to hang on the wall.

Then get complimentary pillows.

A large green plan in the corner by the light to give it life and depth.

Hang curtains, but start them at the top of the ceiling so it looks like the window goes all the way to the top, it has a nice dramatic look and the extra fabric adds a warmer/cozy feel.

How about a gorgeous french blue wall?

with a white and blue patterened painting and pillows in a nice graphic but classic pattern.

If you are crafty at all you could sew the pillows and curtains if you buy the fabric so they match

I think they are great neutral couches. You red tables are a great hit of color. You can certainly continue to use them if you like them. I would separate the 2 tables being used as a coffee table- use them on the other ends of the sofa or near any chairs you have in the room.

If you are tired of the red pick something else for end tables.

Get a large square table or ottoman for a coffee table. If it is a padded ottomman place a tray on top.

The room just need some finishing touches.

Consider getting large lamps for the end tables and move the floor lamp to beside a chair of there is one in the room. They don’t necessarily have to be the same lamp as long as they are similar in scale.

Are you going to buy drapes? If so, I would keep them neutral also  so you can use them in future homes, even if it is not in the same room.

I would get an area rug large enough so that both the sofas and any other chairs in the room have at least their front legs on the rug.

 I would get a soft print that has a few different colors so I can pull from the rug for my accent colors.

Now all you need is some artwork- a large print over the sofa – the color doesn’t have to match anything- just get something you love

I’d get a large rug, some curtains, pillows, and you definitely need some pictures on the walls!
