Can someone process this T2i Cinestyle clip in Premiere to match this photo?

I'm trying to hammer down some good settings for processing Cinestyle T2i footage in Premiere. Would someone be kind enough to edit this original and tell me what your settings were? I've spent hours messing around with the stock Premiere adjustment tools and I can't get the look I want.

This was shot on a T2i with Cinestyle at its default settings.

Here is a photo of the place, cropped and downsized to 1920x1080 - notice how you can see the texture in the basket on the coffee table, among other things. The scene just looks lively.

Here's the raw footage - details are completely smeared and almost beyond recognition, but everyone's been telling me to shoot with sharpness at zero!

This is my pathetic attempt at grading - When I try to grade it I get flickering noise from the blackness of the TV and the sofa chair. And it's still not sharp. I used shadow/highlights, brightness/contrast, 3 color corrector, and unsharp mask (the Cinestyle LUT is WAY to aggressive and outright crushes blacks and highlights. The entire point of Cinestyle is to increase dynamic range, right???)

Can anyone help me?
