EVEN with the new light fixture , curtians an maybe new mirror I FEEL LIKE something is lacking

I like the mirror and I think it is complimentary to the room.
Do you like one of the greens in the rug.. if so, try to match curtains to one of those greens.
Can you paint your walls?
Id love to see some architectural detail in there.. maybe a chair rail, or wainscotting...it is "lacking" something.. maybe one you get everything else up, it will pop out at you what you need.

MY DR is the room I struggle with the most as well... LOL...

i have thought about chair rail molding an then painting the bottom half i guess my only concern with that is the fact that there are two very large door ways into there, 

my thought was to paint the lower half an then do chair rail, i guess ill see how it comes together once everything is up

i thought green curtains to but wondered if it was to much , went to BBB today an found a coppery brown well update later

I would put the over that table thing against the wall...I forget the name of that table. I love the light fixture.

I think greenish curtains would look nice. Maybe match the metal on the light fixture? And place settings would look good too.
