Ideas for skylight interior?

We bought a little condo that is very dated. Built in 1970. The skylight in the living room was covered with the plexiglass in photo #1.
We just replaced the skylight and took off the plexiglass. Guess it could’ve looked way worse!
Our living room is transitional with Asian inspiration. Ideas appreciated on construction, design, materials, colors. Ceiling will remain white. Walls to be determined.
Thank you!
