I hung up the chandelier and the Andy Warhol prints, both of which used to be in our dining nook at the apartment.
Here's a comparison of before, during, and "after" (although this isn't the final after):

I think the room looks a lot better now but there's still a few things I'd like to do before taking a break with this room:
-Add magazines and/or a small vignette to the nightstands (this month)
-Add a headboard (by summer, DIY perhaps?)
-Install window treatment (outer blind and inner curtains (this month)
-Work on the wall/bookcase facing the bed (by summer)
Eventually I would love to paint the walls if not to a color than at least a bright white to cover the horribly chalky contractor's paint (it's so bad you can rub it off with a wet cloth!).
