Suggestions for a Modern & Feminine Living Room?

Q: I moved into my first apartment in August and have had a hard time finding pieces I like and putting the apartment together. I would like it to be modern but feminine and pretty. I bought a few things I like (and some that I didn't like much but needed something). I would love suggestions on how to make the room look better. What type of rug or pillows I should use? How should I add more color? Any suggestions for a prettier rug? Thank you!

Editor: Your living room is calling out for color, texture and pattern! You've got good bones but I would recommend finding some items that are not a single solid color. Also, you've got a lot of neutrals and need some real color accents.

I recommend:
• a new rug with color/pattern
• large scale artwork/focal point on the blank wall

What else can we suggest for Meg?
