Hard time with top of piano!

You have all been so helpful to me in other areas of my house, I'm now looking to you for help with the top of our spinet piano! It's a hand me down, so I can't modify it (or even get rid of it, for that matter). I was given two bright yellow vases recently, and was hoping to use them to help brighten up the space. However, I feel like something is not working. Pictures of the piano are below, as well as a shot of the rest of the room so you can see what I'm working with. Thoughts?

Pair the yellow vases on the right side, buy a third slightly taller one that has yellow and other colors, and get rid of everything else.

Is there a different yellow candle holder in the second photo? That could be the third piece that Mrs Doubtfire suggests (although it is not taller).

Unfortunately, there are only two vases to work with. I agree that the wall felt a bit cluttered - thank you for your help!

If you play the piano, nothing should be on the top. It dulls the sound :)

Provided you have someone that plays, I am in the no vase group, but if you were to set vertical wall art off-center and slightly to the right, it could give you the bright colours you are hoping for, and still leave the top free for a metronome or piano light to the left , as well as cleared space for the sheet music that floats that-a-way when someone is playing.

I was picturing three vases altogether.
