Wow! This is such a great recipe and could not be easier. We have a couple of picky kids in our household and they love it. Definitely a keeper!

Add me to the sisal corner... The room is so awesome and I think an oriental, while lovely, will district too much from what you have going on.

I think you're on the right track, but I have a few thoughts:

I agree that you need art on the walls but, if budget is a problem, a mirror behind the couch and some framed, oversized black and white personal photos would work for now. OR you could frame a groovy, colorful fabric until you can get something else up there.

I'd also add a buffet or something taller with doors on the wall currently housing your bar. That way you can hide your bottles. If room allows, try floating the couch away from the wall or, depending on what you have opposite, putting it on an angle near the windows. Colorful throw pillows are a quick fix, too. Good luck!

You could try Superior Custom Upholstery. They do work for several of the Merchandise Mart showrooms. They're not cheap, but I'm almost positive they would be less than $1,500.

By the way - great room!
