Thanks for all the great tips and ideas! I definitely agree that I need more lighting, but unfortunately there is no overhead light and the room only has two outlets, so the only place I can have a lamp is where you see in the picture. The couch is right next to a doorway so the floor lamp is out too. I love the flor tile idea (why didn't I think of that?!) and the white drapes and colorful artwork as well. The tv stand is a dark espresso color and I think I will paint it white and the inside of the shelves a blue color :)

If you decide to paint, you MUST sand and prime it first. I had an "abomination" debacle a few weeks ago and learned the hard way.
