I would first get rid of the big entertainment center. If you can hang your TV on the wall between the 2 windows at the end that will open up the room. Look for a smaller cabinet that is more open for DVDs and other stuff.

Move your couch under the windows to the right side of the picture.

Since you said you like water falls I would get a couch back table and place it where the center is right now and get one of those counter top water features.
Now I cannot help you with art work since my taste runs more towards landscapes and western. If you have cable watch DIY Network and HGTV there are some great shows where designers help homeowners sell their houses.

I really like the statue in the middle of the floor. Maybe that could be placed on your lap. I have to agree that the wall unit is way to big for the space. Agree that you need window treatments, fabric always softens up a space and gives added color. What you are asking for here is not an easy task. IMHO you should get with someone in your area, be it an interior designer or even someone like me, I paint, I sew, but I do have a good eye. To bring someone into your home who can see your colors, ask the questions about your lifestyle and wants, goals you would like for your home, IMHO, this can not be done on the internet. Maybe check in your area for someone who does custom window treatments, their fees may be less than an interior decorator. I always say that you need to pick your fabrics first, then the colors for the rest of the room will fall into place. As far as getting accessories, think about your own friends who have homes that you have liked the setting, ask them for help. Even just browsing magazines, cutting out pics of what you like and take them with you on a SHOPPING trip, oh what fun. Many of the higher end furniture companies have decorators that if you dangle a sale in front of them will come give you some advice.

I still like the statue

First of all you should repaint it. It looks so dark. I think that this makes it even smaller.

It looks to me like it's already painted white. I think the photo is dark is all.

At this point this is way to much info and does not pertain to what the OP has in mind. Are you trying to get enough posts to spam us,

WHAT IS bad, why is the forum if you can not write anything, it is pointless. I asked a normal question, and added 2 different pictures, contemporary and classical room - any designer will ask the first question, what style will. Believe me I do not depend on the amount of posts because I do not have any benefit from this.

I am sorry if you feel that you are not getting benefit from this forum.

I have no idea why you would post pictures of ceilings when the poster was wanting ideas as far as furniture placement, fabrics etc. Those are IMHO (In My Humble Opinion) could only be answered by someone who could be in the space in question and talk with the homeowner as to the look they want to achieve. This is a difficult task, let alone trying to do it on the internet with just posting pictures.

The forum is always very happy to see input to help the poster of the question get to results that will solve their problem. Sometimes there are answers that just do not fit the question, or the question is just not that easy for a type written answer.

I'd suggest keeping most of the room neutral colors as you don't have much natural light. Then brighten it with throw pillows and accents with color. The fish tank could be good if you choose fish that are bright, tropical colors. A pair of floor lamps would brighten things up.

How does a thread such as this one get 2,900 views in only fourteen days? And has only 14 total comments so far ?

Somebodies cooking the books here somewhere.
