Decorating Questions

I've been trying to figure out what this room needs upstairs -- anyone wanna take a crack at it? I know I need greenery of some sort, but where and what?
I'm also thinking of adding a small ottoman in front of the dark chair.
A coffee table would crowd things, I think. Would a rug help add the color I want, or would that be too much?
Any suggestions for paint color for the wall behind the big couch?
We also switched the chairs -- so the dark one is against the red wall now.
And here's a cutie...just because. :) Are these eyes green? hazel? I have no idea.

Definitely some greenery-a couple floor plants, also the paint color should be warmer, a tan perhaps?
I think a coffee table is just what the room needs...

I think a coffee table would be fine.Plus, you can add a few small things on top of it for "flair". Could you put a small plant (like aloe or something) on the end table, by the chair?

Tall lamp in the corner. My vote on the wall behind the couch is taupe or some sort or a goldenrod. Finally, I vote YES on the rug. Classy room you've got there gal...how the HECK to you keep it like that with all those chillins running around?!?! You're amazing.

Think about one of those ottoman/coffee table combos like they have at Ballard (actually they're probably everywhere). But here's what I mean: http://www.ballarddesigns.com/Furniture/Ottomans/Kent-Leather-Ottoman/p/2655?path=1%2C2%2C1443%2C1486&iProductID=2655 OR try a slipcovered one you can wash when it gets dirty (I'm sure that never happens at your house). I've seen them with a tray on top to hold mags, a plant... OR try one of those ones that opens for storage!
Just a thought.

Thanks, ya'll, for your kind comments.

I'll post updates whenever walls get painted or new things happen :)

Hey Jeannie...Your red is just like mine in my living room. I added "Gold Coin" with it and it's marvy. If you want I can send a pic of our living room. We've got leather furniture too. It's kind of scary how alike it all is! :)

NEW FURNITURE?! Looks divine! I agree with whoever said the "light tan" and yes, a lamp, and yes, a green tree or something...oh, and yes, a coffee table. But I've got to say, I'm not a huge fan of rugs on carpet, but I'm sure you could find something that works if you're into that!

Sweet! Congrats!
