From your description and the look of your home it appears to have been designed during the American Renaissance revival period. This look was popular in Chicago (along with Prairie) and along the east coast. It’s the perfect style for a masculine office due to its heavy, ornate detail which we will preserve in your design.
My plan for your space involves keeping all of your existing light fixtures. I will suggest a new shade for the chandelier and sconces. I also would have an electrician check them to make sure that they are safe and rewire if necessary.
With the exception of the desk and the Hutch my plan replaces all existing furniture. The design in detail of the Hutch fits your room wonderfully. I would use it to house your various electronic pieces by having a local case good craftsman remove the rear panel and make it deeper if necessary to accommodate your equipment. The same craftsman can replace the glass door with a seeded glass to partially obscure the contents while maintaining the feel of the piece.
Your existing fireplace mantle is not typical of the period. If your budget allows, I would replace it with the mantle that I suggest on the color board.
In your alcove, you currently have a pair of chairs separated by an accent table. I suggest that you replace the chairs with a window seat upholstered with a fabric that is complementary to the window treatments that I am suggesting. This will help to remove some of the clutter next to one of the two focal points of your room the Windows and the fireplace. The same case goods craftsman who you use to alter the Hutch can build the window seat.
To update the space, I will suggest more modern furniture, with lines that are typical of the period. A careful blend of upholstered furniture with your American Renaissance architecture should make the space warm and inviting.
In terms of color I am suggesting colors that work well with your existing tapestry. Namely, muted grays, with yellow and green accents
