My living room is modern but I have this antique piece on a back wall. I put a lamp on it but it needs something to make it pop. The lamp can go if need be.

I think the lamp is beautiful, but needs to go over to one side a bit. You could put a piece of modern art above your cabinet and a beautiful glass art piece on it. I'll see if I can find you some examples.
Love your wall colour!

Great suggestions. The wall faces a large window so a mirror may work. There is a thermostat on the wall so i have limited space.

The reason you are not happy with the current look is placement of lamp & lack of any other decor. Nothing wrong with the lamp, just needs to go to left side to hide thermostat.

If you have a window across from this wall, a mirror would be wonderful, as it would reflect the outside.

I would go with maybe wrought iron mirror in a round shape to counter rectangular shape of buffet. Pick a finish that will complement your other furnishings, as well as buffet.

Add some decor which works with this wall colour - can be books, a group of vases (usually work in groups of 3 - each one different colour & texture.

Post after shot please. This is a quick & easy fix, as you probably have the decor in other rooms of your house. Shop your house first!
