Negative diningroom zone

Would love some advice on my dining room.It is a long rectangle in a fairly open-concept space. The far wall (opposite the window) is super boring, and we tend to ignore that end of the table, or use it as a dumping zone for mail etc. (There are doorways at both ends of the table.)If I turn the wall into a cool accent wall, would that help to make the far end more inviting? Or are we doomed to having that a "negative zone?"I dream of raw wood shelves with plants and funky pottery etc., but that might be too cluttered. Maybe just a vibrant colour? Right now it is grey wall with a square mirror. The table is a pine harvest table. Thanks so much for any tips.
