Any number of things can go into a niche such as you have:
1. A small tribal rug or camel saddle bag.
2. A framed picture.
3. A collection of plates.
4. A collection of masks or other items.

Back wall could be wallpapered, or get a large floral arrangement, a sculpture

Not sure where in your home this niche is but you could add glass shelves and put a collection of things you like in it.

Thanks for all the ideas. I was thinking maybe an wrought iron piece.

That, indeed, could work quite nicely!

I was thinking an old gate or wall decorum the right shape. Any ideas where to go to find this object? Do you think wallpaper behind would be too busy? I really like that idea.

An old gate could work well, and I would not add wallpaper behind it.

No wallpaper behind, just a color to pop the iron.

Or leave the niche the color it is, as the iron is much darker than the niche and will show up on its own.

Yes, the color that is there, will work.

A thought to go along with a different color is to paint one of your accent colors in the room, if it is conducive to being a focal point. Something other than gray or black.

These are the accent colors. I'm hoping to update window drapes to a yellow hue similar to throw pillows. I will post a picture I was thinking for your opinion. I definitely could see the space inside the nook, yellow. Thank you for all the help.

More of a golden yellow I should say.

You're welcome! Wow, love the accent colors. A soft tangerine will work also. Depends where the other accent colors are going in the room and where the niche is located to all the other elements in the room.

I know this was a post from last year...but here is the nook today...until I find the right gate. I am pretty happy with the look for now.

I think a gate would fit the scale better. The cross is a pretty one but it is too small for the space.

There may be someone in your area that can make a custom metal gate. I think a mural of flowers, butterflies, and one hummingbird behind the gate. You can even add a 3d effect by adding a vine so it wraps and twists thru the gate.

Look on eBay. Here's one in CA. I saw another that would work in Mississippi. Don't know where you are.....

How weird! I was looking at what items are for sale near me and someone in the next town over has this. Looks like the size is right?
