Ok I have a huge patio window. I was gifted a bunch of burgendy curtains. I was also gifted a couch cover in the same color (these were all family left overs). I have both in my living room and its begining to feel like icky! I want a change! I think the room needs some new paint on my big dresser and some funiture rearangment. On one wall I have a large tv on a cart, its flanked by two tall bookcases with a shelf on top (both have black sides but one has a white front and cant be spray painted). I have a futon for a chouch, a black mod endtable, a speaker stand (its grey and my other end table) along the other long wall. On the short wall that come off the kitchen (making up the 3rd wall) has a large dresser that holds board games. Its a pretty 60's style peice thats all black with tropical (dark) blue drawers. Along the patio wall sits the large patio door, and the heat registers. I also have a cat box wedged in the corner of this wall and the cats junk. In front of the patio door I have a plant stand and my favorite black chair. Any ideas? Pictures soon!

The burgundy could be livable if you pull out some of the rug colours. The aqua could be really nice if your dresser is a solid, simple design. You could go more towards that European quirky simplicity we've been seeing all over Pinterest. Perhaps paint the end tables lime? or Aqua with lime legs? Also, you could dress up the curtains with some ribbons in aqua, lime, purple, tan (stitched in rows an inch apart across both top and bottom could be quite graphic and modern).

I decided your layout needed an update, because you're losing a lot of space in the middle of the room.
