If you are looking for color inspiration, I would suggest checking out the designers guild. Tricia guild is a master at balancing color and pattern - study that for a couple of months before testing our acquired skills. Also, I know you have an AC under the window, but if you can somehow work around that, I would suggest relocating the bookcase(/murphybed?), and placing the sofa in front of the windows with about 1.5-2 feet clearance between the window and the sofa. It'll elongate the look of the windows, give the sofa more pronounced standing in the living room, and allow you to start complimenting curtains (to the floor length) with sofa with throws and throw pillows.

Flowers on the mantle is also an excellent idea. I would suggest picking up one of tricia guild's books and seeing what she does with historical stuff.
