Dark and Dreary Living Room

Eric Herbert
last month

Our living room has always felt dark and dreary during the day. It does not have a natural source of light with the exception of a moonlight that only receives direct sunlight during the AM hours. These pictures were taken mid-day. My wife's is currently a SAHM with our young kids and the living room also doubles as the playroom. My wife's Christmas request was improving the lighting in the living room. We have considered adding track lights above the TV and/or installing LED wafers in the sloped ceiling but unsure the patter and/or amount to use. Do you have any thought on what would make the living room brighter and cheerier?

We have also struggled with the layout of this room while maximizing the kids place space, but that is for a different post.

I appreciate any help

And here is a more recent photo with new couches -
