Some patterned throw pillows, with SMALL bits of the room colors you already have, but adding in colors, and being floral for a couple, striped for others.

Pictures on the walls. Some soft sheers might look nice, but aren't necessary.

You really need to break up the brown tones. Maybe a pitcher with nice silk flowers on the coffee table.

Saw mention about long curtains...JCPenney has great prices! Here are some in my living room http://i483.photobucket.com/albums/r..._1460235_n.jpg

I wanted to reply before I read the thread so I keep my first thoughts intact.
First off, I think what you just need are some throw pillows and some art for the walls; I think it looks like a fun and funky but warm room.
I would also add more natural materials, like things made out of nature, like baskets; maybe a floor basket with some books.
Plants always help, too.

And lastly for a little more funk, I think an orgami crane mobile would look rockin' in there.

now I'll go see what everyone else thought. I like it, I wished my living room looked as nice.. le sigh.

This link should hopefully take you to JCP's curtains filtered by 96"+ panels

Do you sew? It looks like many are 108", you could easily shorten a simple panel like this:

ETA: I see you already did an update...it looks really good!!

Thanks everyone! You're all so helpful. I will definitely be back if I have decorating questions again. And, actually I do have one that I'll be back to ask very soon.

I tried to edit the subject of my original post to indicate an update, but couldn't. I will go edit the first message at least.
