If you wat to warm it up, then I would suggest adding earthy tones or taupe. If you have white cabinets, then maybe add some wood accents in the room.

The mirror is a reproduction at about $1300.00. It is not a functional clock as it has no 'hands'. See http://www.homedit.com/convex-clock-mirror/

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Shoshana Gosselin added this to Living Rooms With a Personal Stamp Of Style
Go bold. This room has fabulous, high-end personality. The use of the black wall, interesting art, and black trim and floor molding is a creative move.
A cozy and dark library greets guests as they come through the front doors. Although a bold black-and-white palette can come across as harsh, principal interior designer John Day and associate interior designer Jayme Kennerknecht carefully mixed in warm accents to create a softer look."White is typically cold, and black overpowering," says Day. "But with added touches of rich, deep colors, plus careful changes in texture and pattern, we were able to warm it up and provide balance to the high-contrast theme." Piece above mantle: Homeowners' collectionRug: Niba RugsSide Table: Furniture Guild
Erin Lang Norris added this to Step-by-Step: Dress Your Home in Velvety Black
Black walls. The biggest commitment to the color of night, rich black walls, feels cozy and warm in a room flooded with natural light. So go against the grain of typically used colors and step into a pool of ink. Just be sure to use a finish that's matte rather than glossy to avoid potential eyesores.More:Add a Little Gothic Glamour, Chateau Marmont StyleGlossy Black and White Beachfront StyleDesign 2011: Black Casework, Doors and Cabinetry
Jennifer Bishop Design added this to Moody Details in Design
Setting glossy art pieces against matte black walls almost gives them a ghost-like feel.
Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to Sleek, Beautiful Stone Slab Fireplace Surrounds
This unusual modern application of taupe-brown stone slab (I'm guessing a marble like Labrador Antique Light) trimmed with a sleek metal edge complements the dark paneled walls. I love how the mantel is painted the same black as the walls. This is a great way to make a space modern and traditional at the same time.
Shoshana Gosselin added this to Painted Fireplace Mantels Add Pizzazz
I love this idea. Paint the mantel the same color as the wall to create a very dramatic look.More:Make Your Fireplace the Focal PointDIY Projects: Updating Your FireplaceMantel Mania: Sprucing the Space Above Your Fireplace
Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to Rooms Rock the Black Look
Black can be elegant. Here it strikes a perfect balance of edgy and sophisticated. Note the impact of the oversize clock. The clock provides a reflective contrast to the black palette, which includes a champagne-hued rug and chairs. When paired with a contrasting hue, black can feel bright and actually highlight details.
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to Every Room Needs a Little Bit of Black
Every once in a while, a design magazine heralds the advent of “the new black.” It’s a term used to describe or give merit to a color trend, as in, “Orange is the new black.” My response to such pronouncements is always to turn a chilly shoulder and harrumph. I love color, but only black accomplishes so much, with so little, so well.More: 11 Reasons to Paint Your Ceiling Black
