Saucy Help!

The Process of Sauce

i love your furniture, especially that couch. the set-up right now definitely does look "temporary looking", but i think you could fix that if you decided on a theme or feel for the room. right now all those white walls and bare floors feel very cold/stark to me, so i wouldn't go the mint green route.

when i see your "saloon-like" furniture, it makes me think of warm tones. but the white walls and the dark blue curtains and blue rug are very cool/stark/modern, and it just seems like all the pieces in the room are at odds with each other.

i personally like a room to feel cozy, so if these were my awesome furniture pieces, i'd paint the walls a warm shade and get new curtains and a new rug in complementary shades. (so, for example, warm -but still pale- yellow walls and ruby red curtains and rug.)
and i can't really see, but it looks like you've got a lot of houseplants. painting their pots (or buying new ones in) complementary colors will also help tie the room together.

on the other hand, if you'd rather go the sleek/stark/modern route, i'm no help to you at all. i understand that millions of people prefer it, but it makes me feel like i'm living in a museum. :)

I would switch the room almost directly across. The sofa would be better under the large painting against the wall -- the window behind it breaks up the lovely shape and makes it look kind of odd. Then I would move the large sideboard (currently to the right of the sofa) to where the sofa currently is, and bring your dining area over to the right, in front of the windows. Then you could put your TV arrangement across from the sofa and not suffer from window-glare when you're trying to watch TV. I'm not sure about paint colors, but dark green sounds wrong in my head. There was a time when everyone was painting their walls a "hunter green" and I think that time has passed -- maybe something more toward a lighter green-gold? It would be warmer.

Love your furniture, and the apartment is gorgeous. I'm sure whatever you do will turn out very nice in that space.
