Living dining room

Decorating & Furniture - Living Room/Dining Room design


I want to make my living room/dining area dramatic and elegant with good flow throughout. We painted last year with Benjamin Moore: Jamesboro Gold, Valley Forge Brown and Sepia Tan. Now According to my photo attached, have I put the paint in the right places or does the scheme flow? I feel like it's missing that special 'punch'. I've focused on off white and metal accents and tan furniture covers (that we'll change to cream) for contrast and brightness. I thought about painting dark brown in the dining space(where the china cabinet is and on the adjacent wall). I've hung pictures and a mirror in black frames. I also have a tuscan coffee table with blue green slate tiles and have pulled that color out in one pillow and a flower pot. I added rusty red pillows to match the stripes in my dining chairs too. I will be adding lamps when we buy them. I just want to know if my paint color and decorating seems all over the place, as I don't seem to be getting the WOW I'm looking for. I love a contemporary look. if you have any suggestions I'd love to know please!
