Orange is very difficult to decorate with effectively. It's much more tricky to balance other colors with it. Slight variations in hues can really make things look awkward.

I'd lose the dark fan blades. Most brands have options for replacing just blades. Something lighter, but that still works with the motor housing, might be good. Otherwise a new fan isn't too expensive.

I'd think about lighter rods for the window treatments. A brushed nickel or lighter antiqued bronze (not oil rubbed) would be worth consider.

The rug works, but perhaps not with that table. You'd got too many shapes and finishes competing for attention.

If you really want that kind of lighting next to the TV then install actual sconces. Those lights don't look right that way (again, too many competing shapes/finishes).
