Help needed please for living room makeover

7 years ago

We've recently moved into a new house and are looking for some advice and inspiration from fellow Houzzers before embarking on our living room makeover. the room measures approximately 3.9m x 5.3m and so far we have replaced the old sliding door to the garden with a bifold. Our plan is to refurb completely including renewing the fireplace, new sofas and fitting wall lights and downlights. The bifolds face to the east and generally it's a nice light room.

Really we're after people's thoughts on two fronts but would welcome any advice in general:

1. We're leaning towards painting the walls in a dark colour but are not 100% certain if this is the right way to go? We'd like to create a bit of impact and make the room feel a bit cosier.

2. Layout - currently it's ok but is there a better option ? We had thought of moving the tv to the other side of the fireplace to get away from the light coming in through the bifold but this then has a knock on effect with seating.

Some photos below of the existing (excuse the baby paraphernalia!):

Any comments most welcome!
