your proportions look a little whack - the TV looks like it's way too high - it should be at eye level - and it's making the ceiling look really low. I think you need to sort out the texture on the carpet and also eveything is looking a little too sharp - i would use the bevel tool to round off some of those edges.

Thanks for the tip. I'll try to smooth a little. I did some changes like you said and i changed the intensity of the light. But now i'm having a problem with the glass table near the tv. Any tips to make a more realistic glass?
