I call that space the "No Zone", for every time something drops down a space like that I can be heard moaning, "Noooooo!". Really, there is "No" easy way to fish things out of those "Zones". No Zone. I hate the No Zone.

eternalvoyageur is spot on about the rugs. I suggest using only one of those rugs so it sits under all of the furniture- the sofa, front legs of the desk and just under the bed. you could try either orientation to see what fits best. Throw pillows on the couch are a must. Graphic art, rather than what is up there. Love lenzai's idea about dressing the chair-as-nightstand and switching/ditching the tall lamp. I would also put a small table in front of the sofa on the right side for some visual balance. Bringing in a lighter robin's egg blue as an accent will also bring some of that requested "pizzazz"!

doing dishes in the summer heat is the bane of my existence. I am all about all-hot-water-washups, so unless it's a cool evening things pile up. sometimes I actually look forward to our ridiculously cold montreal winters- the prefect incentive to get those dishes done. often.

this is just screaming for potted plants. seems like a huge oversight! also, the blue doesn't really work imo, I like the idea of bold and contrast, but blue is almost boring. any number of yellows would be grand. and plants, please buy some plants!
