How do I make my new house look like a finished, cosy home?

9 years ago
We built a new house and have been in there for about six months. I love it, but it feels a little sterile/boring sometimes. The main room of the house is a big kitchen/dining/living room with high ceilings. How do I take it to the next level, design-wise? I'm considering wallpapering the wall behind the television, but aside from that I'm clueless! Ditto my bathroom - I have a beautiful free-standing tub but I have no idea how to decorate the space. At the moment I'm using some jars with pebbles that were leftover wedding decorations, and a rather ugly vase someone bought us as a gift.
