ok, I'm not saying I like this example especially, or feel that it looks completely comfortable.
However, if you just have to have a frou frou room, at least at least this one has points of interest, coherence, a vision.
I'd get rid of one of the chairs on the left to create more space, maybe even both the chairs. I wouldn't have had that mess going on above the fireplace mantle, the thing that looks like a snow angel. Me with my love of jewel tones would throw in an accessory here or there in cobalt blue, ruby, emerald, etc. to shake things up and create interest. All that crown molding could be a little less obvious, etc.
At least it looks like a room that doesn't smell like old person.
