Key grown up moment: thumbtacks don't hang up the art on your walls and (GENERALLY) your art is framed. I don't care if it's a poster. Just hang it like a human being :)

All of these ideas aside, at the very least you can use this space way better. Pull your table and chairs away from the wall; either sit it in the center or perhaps a little closer to that breathtaking view you have with the windows! Take that bookcase rammed in the corner and put it on the outdent between your window panels. You also have this long bare bleak wall (far right in photo)... have you considered shelving? That's not furniture, but will definitely add storage and interest. OR, you could even cantilever a wider piece of wood about table height on that wall and have a buffet or a desk or a entertaining/serving food and cocktails space. At least up north, home depot will cut wood to size for you and with a little spraypaint- voila! - even crap wood is decent for a couple semesters. Just make sure to fill those screw holes with putty before you go.

Have you thought about placing the Expedit bookcase perpendicular to the fireplace, a couple feet back toward the double window in the image? If you broke up the room this way, you could put a small reading area between the expedit and those double windows (say a chair and end table)... it would give you a room-within-a-room and make the remaining living space a little cozier, too. The couch would then go perpendicular to the fireplace on the other side, with perhaps two chairs facing the fireplace to complete the seating arrangement. A console table behind the couch and perhaps a carpet in the center of the seating area would anchor the floating furniture.

I just adore this look, but filling my home with $18 bulbs from Anthropologie is a little out of my price range. Does anyone know of a compromise on a pretty bulb for less?
