If you don't want to invest in new drywall/sheetrock and having paneling, here is a straight forward DIY option if you dont mind a textured wall. Also a good option if you have a heavily
These photos are from our cottage on the lake .... I removed all of the molding that covered the seams of the wall board. Then with a bucket of ready made drywall mud and a 6" knife I applied it all over the walls. No need to be perfect and you can apply it as heavy as you want. I did fill the seams of the wall board first, then just started applying throughout the whole room - getting as close to the trim as possible to give a natural look. Give 24 hours to dry completely before painting!
Then paint (see staged photos). Then I applied a translucent glaze that I purchased at Lowe's. Finished product is kind of tuscan looking stucco! Affordable and easy .. and its a pretty good workout for your upper body! :)
Your room is looking very nice, you just need some accents and larger items. The items and
placement you have cause them to be lost in space. Open the throw at the foot of the bed, add an accent pillow between the two blue pillows (try a new shape and size, maybe a matching round green pillow, they have them in flower shapes), add accent shades on the lamps, hang one or two larger contemporary pictures in your color theme in the room. The two smaller ones are lost on the large wall. Maybe put them on the green shelf which needs a few more items. Find and accent color you like and use it! The black frames are nice as they bring your eye to the pictures. Decide what is special to you and where you want your accents to be. Move the grass up higher or put in a matching decorative pot. Have fun!
I am trying to figure out what to do with this 100 year old carriage house in my backyard. It has a huge room with a huge sliding door on each side. I've included pictures of the house,
the rest of my backyard and the inside of the carriage house (please excuse the mess....I don't know what to do with all of this outdoor stuff). I am thinking some kind of covered eating area or hot tub destination...but it is rather far from the house. There are lights and electricity in all rooms of the house and off the main room is another room that has cabinets and and another room that is a horse stall. It is an awesome place but I need assistance on how to incorporate it into my landscaping! I'm in Alabama by the way. Help???!!!

Think about what you love to do; garden, make a garden center; dance, make a dancing area;
entertain and cook, make an outdoor party/dining area. What fun you could have landscaping - a couple of crabapple or flowering trees, a winding path, a birdbath, flowers, bird feeders.........
