Fill in the blanks

With all the great advice I've received from readers over the years, I like to consider you part of my design team! Your expertise is appreciated on my latest design dilemma...

Remember the living room before?

Here  it is today.
I love the progress we've made so far.  But when we added the architectural print to the wall above the couch, I felt like something was missing. It's the design equivalent of fill in the blanks.... ideas?

What about some matching wall-mounted vases that you can put fresh flowers in to add a bit of colour? Saw these DIY versions the other day (http://cupcakesandcashmere.com/floating-vase/ and http://cuteclever.com/2011/09/05/wall-mounted-mason-jar/, but sure you can buy them somewhere too!

So I have a couple of ideas. I love that print, but I think it's a tad too small for the space. Maybe you could get a larger frame/mat combo or swap it out for something else entirely.

I'm also a fan of a big, round-ish (or oval) mirror. It would be a nice contrast to all of the clean, straight lines in the space. Plus, it would help bounce some light around.

I love the wall color and the layout! Oh...or if you keep the current print and maybe flank it with small, adjustable sconces for reading light? I hope this helps. :)

I think a pair of swing arm sconces would look killer there! Maybe something like this: http://www.spacify.com/modern_contemporary_walker_swing_arm_sconce_by_lights_up-Ligh.TS+4055.html

Just a suggestion… can't wait to see what you do :)

It looks beautiful!! I love it:) How about sconces? (I found great ones at homegoods.

Or two small sunburst mirrors?
