  • Paint the walls red and spray paint the metal on the chandelier black. Hang 2 pictures on either side of the mirror

  • what about color ties around the top of the chairs or some sort of color on the wall?

  • Paint! Maybe all the walls taupe and the wall with the mirror red. Get a colorful centerpiece for the table.

  • COLOR! Red would look good with the silver. How about a bright lithograph print for the wall?

  • If you're not going to put any color on the walls, then I'd consider a piece of art with some color instead of the mirror. Is there a rug under the table? If not, that may be another way to add a pop of color. I think that's what's missing here, at least what I can see from the photo.

  • I would put in some live plants, like ivy or something in nice pots.

  • Paint just above the chair rail a darker color. Can be tan, red, blue but keep the colors smokey, not bright. You can add more pictures, or an area rug under the table.

  • Color! Paint the wall in an accent color the mirror is hanging on and get two other color prints - it will make the room pop.
