It's...well...it's a...piano. And a slightly out of focus one. Anything in particular you were hoping to achieve in this shot?
how did you fit the couch into the piano? all kidding aside, i agree with what was said above...
There are a few critical things wrong with this picture. The WB is incorrect and there is motion blur.
Oh man. I could not help laughing out loud, Switch, at the prospect of a piano having a motion blur.
lol, that IS kinda funny... I like the angle on this shot, and i think if the piano were in an all white room , with nothing on it, and it was well lit, noiseless and clear, then I would like it, but there are just too many issues i have with it as is
now I can't get that image out of my head. May be next time a piano pan shot?
as to this picture: I have to agree with the comments above. Reshoot knowing what you know now and show us the result!
Your image is just way too warm, WB issue. While it is a fairly decent angle, it being just in a living room doesnt provide much of an interesting picture.
Somehow it seems to be more about the window then the piano. Please fill us in all the details. Set your camera to Tungsten WB.

Id say get a more interesting angle
Try clearing off the stuff on top of the piano and getting closer, to reduce distracting elements. Or try focusing on just one detail of the piano. Close-ups of piano keys are classic, for example. If you use a tripod you'll help eliminate that "motion blur" and ensure that your piano stays in one place.
