New furniture

My new furniture got delivered today. Now that it's here I'm ready to look for a new window treatment. Any suggestions? I'm also not sure I like the pillows, but they were free and I can find different cheap ones somewhere like TJMaxx if I want to. (I also need to polish those Baxter nose prints off the coffee table.)
From the other doorway. I'm not sure the beige chair still works. I plan to change the lamps too.
I'm having a hard time getting the color accurate in a photo.Now that the furniture is here I'll also start choosing what to put on the walls. I did get these:
I was thinking of putting them something like this (the black squares I Photoshopped on the wall), but the lamp is troublesome. I may put them up on either side of the window instead. I'm also planning on putting a tall plant in that corner on the left.
I'm pretty unskilled with home decor, so I'm happy to get any suggestions!

Nice! They look really comfy! I would like to see more of that orange around the room, it's a great accent color.

Love your new furniture! And those new wall hangings are gorgeous! Not qualified to give you decorating ideas... but can't wait to see what you come up with!

The couches look nice and cozy - I like the rich brown color. Those prints are perfect, too.
I am decor challenged, my only suggestion on the lamps is maybe to get some wrought iron ones.

when can i go visit? just kidding. im sorry im no help with the decoraiting thing but i will tell you that your living room is looking great.

If the lamp is staying, my vote is to put them somewhere else. I can totally envision them on either side of the window.

Love the color of your new furniture! You and I sometimes lead such parallel lives. My chairs FINALLY showed up last Saturday, after 24 LONG weeks of waiting. I was concerned that i was even going to LIKE them any more after all this time. Monday I went and ordered a rug. Supposedly it was going to ship today, so we should have it next week. Once it's here then I'll pick paint and deal with window treatments.

I can't tell, do you have something (blinds) on the windows now? If not, I totally see some nice (not cheapo) bamboo roman shades on your windows with some simple side panel curtains.

I love your carpet. I think you could do something with a splash of color for the curtains. Maybe the orange or dark red. I have the same color furniture and walls in my family room and I felt like I needed a pattern on the curtains to bring some color and life to the room.

I love that furniture! Your colors are so warm and comfortable. I think maybe a bright throw to match whatever colored pillows you end up with will really tie the chair in.

Great new furniture. That was the color I wanted when we bought ours last year, but my dh talked me into cream (thankgoodness for microfiber!) Your room looks good to me, but I also lack in the home decor department.

Wow, I LOVE your new furniture!!! Looks so comfy and inviting! I'm no help with the decorating either... I would just switch the lamp & chair places so I could put the frames where you originally thought..;)

Your house is so gorgeous Becky. I love the colors! I am really awful at window treatments only because 99% of the time I am taking them off to get the most light I can out of them. I live in a subdivision and the people around me must think I am NUTS because they can see right inside my house. I love your new furniture! One of these days when the kids are bigger, I will allow myself to buy nice furniture again. :)

Very nice new sofas, they look so comfy! I can't give any decorating advice...my home decorating skills are actually worse than my PS skills and that's pretty bad! LOL! I really like the way your living room looks, it's very pretty and I look forward to seeing it with some stuff on the walls. :)

Congrats on getting new furniture! How exciting and I love it! I think the pillows are perfect and they go well with those pictures you've already gotten. I don't have much advice for decorating but so far it's looking great to me!

What beautiful furniture! I love the colors, and the colors of your walls. I noticed in your stack of books, "Still Alice." My book club is about to start reading this, although I'm still wanting to get to Stephen King's book first!
