About This Space

Here is my dining room thus far. I am really looking for suggestions on how to make the room not look so monotone. All items in the room are staying, including the curtains, but I am not happy as I feel the room looks so flat and gray.

I have thought about adding drama by paining the walls very dark, but am unsure.

I am also considering adding artwork and a floral centerpiece instead of the simple silver piece I have on the table now, to help with color, but don't know which colors to embrace and add.

I do have my heart set on flanking the window with two mirrors, but again the mirrors will continue to make the room look gray/silver. Any advice on how to make this room look more dramatic and not so boring?
