    A large mirror would look nice. I believe it's good feng shui. You could also add a flower arrangements on the table and a rug for the floor.

    the cheapest way. I would add either a large mirror or painting on the back wall. You could also change the ceiling fan with a pendent light fixture. To add some interest, you could change the material on the seats.

    It's really going to be based on your style and colours/decoration. I agree a large mirror would be a great place to start.

    How about a gallery wall? It would look great!

    I would paint the table base and chairs white (or cream?) to lighten up the room, and find a fabric I liked for all the seats. How about painting soft, wide stripes on the back wall with a glazing compound (lots of "how-tos" on YouTube). Just a couple of ideas that wouldn't cost too much.

    Look for a large painting / print that picks up the bottom wall color. Then a pair of sconces, one on either side. Match the candles to the bottom wall color. This would give the dining room feel.

    The neutral color of your walls was a good choice! Go to Marshalls, Home Goods, etc and buy a large canvas piece of art. (You'll be surprised how much bang you'll get for the buck!) Then pick up one of the colors in that artwork for the table and chairs. BAM! Instant designer!!

    You could also go to your local museum where you might find a wider selection of prints. The print of the children my daughter got me at a museum for $1. The prints in the grouping were free (they are Audubon birds) I do lots of things with groups of prints I find. However our town has a "swap shop" where it is possible to find things for free, but book sales etc. would also be a source for book prints. Also depending on your interests you could hang something quite large, like a chart (in our area we are next to the ocean) or a map, or a quilt or even a small rug. I also love china hung on walls and that is pretty inexpensive.

    Use a mirror, place some pictures on the wall too. You need placemats as well as fresh flowers on the table. Put a round area rug under the table as well
