This is a mud room off my living room in beach house. We use it to keep dog feeder bowls etc. There is already a closet/shelves being installed on one side for storage etc but how can I brighten up where you see in- I was thinking a nice mirror but there’s a lot of shapes going on

darla6733 First, I'm pea green with envy - I love your mud room (and covet one so!) But, first impressions are that, it being a utility room, before you'd do anything serious here....consider painting it a nice, beachy and bright-light color. This alone will make a world of difference.
