I've just moved into a new house, and I want a living room that is sophisticated, but also current, fun & comfortable - I like to entertain often. I would like something eclectic with blues & yellows. I would like to paint the orange accent wall. I also have a hutch I would like to use in the room, but I am not sure if it will "go" with the new style. The door to the outside leads to the side of the house, but it's redundant.

Eclectic Sophistication
 
We love a blank canvas! Lets start with the basics: paint the room in a muted blue/grey, and add a fresh coat of soft white to the ceiling and trim as well (see colour selections above). We are suggesting a tailored tufted couch in a neutral fabric. Add yellow and blue patterned throw pillows to the couch for interest and vibrancy. Two bold blue velvet chairs with a round cocktail table in between will add sophistication, while the tufted coffee ottoman in place of a coffee table will tie in with the couch. The brass & glass tray to bring function to the ottoman also adds elegance. Place a floor lamp near the leather chair and ottoman for a cozy vignette for reading & entertaining. Place a painting above the hutch, centered above the right half: Visually divide the hutch in half, then center it above that half. Take care to hang the art only about 18 or so from the top of the hutch. To repurpose the hutch, paint it a charcoal grey and add replace the existing hardware with new crystal pulls. The triangular side tables with brass legs should flank either side of the couch. Add drapery panels to the windows - taking care that they graze the floor, and are hung halfway between the top of the window trim and the ceiling. A back rod will pick-up on the charcoal hutch and compliment the blue/grey walls. A large area rug will visually tie all of the eclectic elements of the room together into a cohesive look. If possible, remove the door & close-in the wall. If the door is redundant, it will certainly look more stylish without it!
