    Shelves as suggested above, for shoes or pretties. Cabinet with shelves and door for hats, scarves or shoes. Inset enough so that outside of door is flat with wall.

    A good handyman might even be able to attach that door to the framing inside the wall rather than having to make a whole custom cabinet.
    Shelving is cheap, and that niche had to be wood-framed as well. So, as long as you don’t store weights in it...

    I would place a tall vase with a tall faux plant maybe. Or you could put decorated contact paper on the back wall to make it pop. Or paint the inside a color to pop and then hang hooks on the wall to hang coats/hats/purses in it, etc.

    Paint or stain a shutter and attach with hinges to make a all cupboard.

    I would add shelves, display some small things and let the bottom shelves hold a basket to catch all the keys and mail and stuff like that.
