I'm imagining some sort of shelving unit right next to the door, basically right next to (or on top of!) the vent, and perpendicular to the floor. Have the shelving side pointing toward where a person would be if he just stepped through the front door, & then you have your shoe storage/landing spot. I like the ikea expedit series for an inexpensive, open solution which also functions as a type of room divider. Then, mount the TV onto the wall, approximately where it is now (hide the wires in the wall if you can, & then put cable box/dvd/etc) in the new shelving unit.
i'd also consider moving the armchair out of the room- i think it may be a bit much... if it's special, can you use it in a bedroom or something?
good luck!

I think this rug from west elm would warm, liven, etc, almost without you having to do anything else.

But I'd also lose the red touches- red black white is very dramatic/vampire movie, not warm & welcoming.

Good luck!
