My Design Thinking Process At Work!

When choosing any element that I would like to add to my home I go through a process. 
Some might think it is too planned or calculated, but having been in this industry for over three decades I have learned that any good design needs a plan.
Often home decorators get so excited about something they see, or a new trend, and they go out and buy the new element without thinking of where it will go in their homes, or how it will marry to other pieces they already have.
If you are purchasing a little knick-knack it would be no great loss if it doesn't work. If you are buying something that is more costly or a permanent fixture then you really need to think things through.
Recently I decided that a very small area in my home needed a bit of sprucing up. It is an area most people might ignore, and to be honest it could be ignored.
The only problem is I sit and stare at this area ever single night when we are watching TV.....
To the left of our TV there is a little entry hall that leads to the master bedroom. It is a nice little separation area from the main living area and gives a bit more privacy to our room. Things I need to consider before moving forward..........
The TV niche will have molding added to it in the very near future so it will look and feel more finished. The door opening will also be wrapped with molding.
In this little hall area I have room to put my antique table and mirror....

You actually only see this table when entering the hall or sitting at the far end of the great room.
You will also notice the horribly placed thermostat. If it had been place to the far right the wall could be addressed more easily.
(The thermostat is about a foot away from the door frame.)
So what do I want to do this time and what is my plan"
The first step is to I look at the overall area and I  take notice that the entire area visually includes the fireplace, TV and hallway. This whole wall reads as one unit and therefore must be treated as one wall.
