My dining room : in desperate need of help.

As I said  in my last post  decorating I don't do well.  We moved into this house almost two months ago.  Admittedly it has taken all this time to unpack.. but now we are down to a few boxes I am starting to see the area that need serious work.  The dining room is most in need of an overhaul.. At the moment it is like  eating in a hall, a very big room with no personality

I am showing some photo's looking for help.  The photo's were taken late in the day.
The room is on the dark side of the house, so I am not sure whether to try to lighten it or go with a darker colour scheme.  Both the curtains and the paint   are to be update.An suggestions on colours or what furniture to put where would be great

  1. even though it's on the dark side of the house, it seems like a big room and the best way to make it smaller and more "intimate" would be to paint it a dark colour.

    To compliment the flooring, woodfire and brick surround I'd paint it a gorgeous deep shade of red - perfect colour for a dining room!!
