In tackling this multi-functional, disjointed space, I would first aim for cohesion by:
Painting the entire space one neutral color (our go to is Sherwin William Worldly Gray) leaving ceiling and trim a crisp white.
Hanging pre-made window treatment panels on either side and between each window to further unify the space. If possible, the flooring would also be continuous.
Replacing the tile and carpet with a waterproof luxury vinyl plank that looks like a wood floor, but is suitable for ground floor living.
Removing the latticework divider
Playing up the bar by replacing the top with a solid surface and adding 2 more matching barstools
I would then anchor the space by removing all artwork and small furniture pieces. Then replacing them with a large console on the far wall and triptych (3- panel artwork) hung above.
