A trip to Vancouver

Room redecorating project.

Before Christmas I worked on my living room.  It was an excellent project to keep my mind busy while we were waiting diagnosis of Dad's cancer.  I think it turned out nicely and am now ready to move on to the next room: the study.  This is a bigger project and will definitely take a couple months to complete.  What I'm lacking with this room is a vision.  A style.  A sense of something.  Right now it's a mess of stuff with mishmashed style taking over.  It screams: LEFTOVERS FROM UNIVERSITY LIFE.
Now that I'm 10 years over University, I think my style can move on too.
So, without further ado, here is room two.

I already have the wall art picked out, so that won't be difficult.  We're just waiting on it.  It's a series of portraits we had done this summer with my family by Stuart Kasdorf.  The two other images are his, so it'll be nice to have the walls updated with our life status (2 more kids and the wrinkles that go with).  So those are taken care of.  I definitely need to update the lighting and the decor of the wall behind the piano.   Any ideas on colour?  Don't you think this room needs to be lightened up? or warmed up? or somethinged up???

This is the other half of the room, which we use as office space.  There are a couple things that will be easy to find: mirror, cubicle thing, desk chair....but I'm struggling with the window covering and the wall with the door.  I just find this room boring.  How can I jazz it up?

Anyway, this is what I'll be working on for the next couple months.  I imagine it'll take me that long to come up with a vision.  Unless you have some stellar ideas you are keeping from me.  Just try me.
