Help! Which Layout is Better?

Good Questions

Q: I've included two pictures of my living room (both photos below) - in one picture my couch separates the kitchen from the living room, in the second I've placed my couch right to the wall making the space appear larger and more open. Which one works better in my tiny living room?

I also want to change the wall color to a more neutral shade. I have found it very difficult to decorate with this bright green. And, obviously the panels have to go, perhaps in exchange for curtains? I'm still looking for the right tv stand.

Please help me make my place feel more like a home!
