I love textured wallpapers and I think the house could really work the retro velvety prints on the wall with the fireplace.  There are some amazing ones on this website – which is an australian company http://www.wallpapersonline.com.au which you could have a look at.  I totally love the flock velvets.

The carpet is a good basic colour and leaves you a lot of fredom to play things up with rugs?  I’d suggest going for a neutral sofa so that you could play with coushins etc,  What about blinds for the windows?  The window facing the fire is big, so you could separate it a bit by having  3 sections of blinds on the window so that you could open/close one section at a time depending on sunshine or whatever.

It looks very nice! I love feature walls and a nice, rich red colour would be great OR a suede finish paint that adds some texture and depth will work nicely. You could also raise the curtain rods and have ceiling to floor curtains made which will look really great and perhaps wooden blinds? What type of furniture do you have?

You know what will really help? If you take the floorplan and actually put it on a grid so that you can “fit” furniture to scale and move it around to see how it will work. Lol. That way you can go shopping for furniture with an idea of what will work and then you go for what you like, within a budget. As far as the type of furniture goes, if you are planning on having kids, light fabrics are not really adviseable…. And I would rather buy less pieces that are high quality than more pieces that are cheap and not durable.  If you are going for fabric rather than leather, something like a taupe would work well and you can add colour with an area rug and scatter cushions. You are going to have such a lot of fun, nothing like setting up your first house. i can remember how excited I was about buying our first couch which was our first real puece of furniture!!!! Good times!!!
