Ellen's Living Room

Recently, Ellen wrote to me about her living room:

Hi Lauren!

I would love some suggestions for accessories for my living room. We moved in a little over a year ago from a one bedroom when I was eight months pregnant and are just now finishing getting things done. We had to pretty much start from scratch. I'll send photos of our living room, dining room, kitchen and sunroom. The house has original dark wood molding which we're keeping. The sofa in the sunroom will be replaced with a neutral beige from Crate and Barrel pretty soon and we're planning on buying the small Basque hutch from Crate and Barrel for the dining room which already has a table and chairs from Crate and Barrel. The living room furniture is from Ballard Designs, Crate and Barrel and Ikea. I would love a mirror between the two lights above the fireplace (they are around 34 inches apart) and need ideas on paint colors, rugs, and accessories (wall art, pillows, etc. If you had other ideas for what to do about the fireplace, I'd be welcome to it as well. Thanks!
