Scott, from another Scott, yes you have to make some changes to your room as it is boring (your words!). Since there were 18 views already with no replies, I will be the first to comment.
So, before any reccomendations are made, is the theme that you started what you want t stay with? The reason I ask is because I have seen many rooms that are done with a Japanese style theme, and they typically will have lots of dark red and black in the colors. It's hard to do dark reds and blacks in a family room that is attached to a kitchen or anything else, so I don't want to tell you to just go out and do that. Instead, how about a deep red (not really dark) along with some bamboo colored accents? The bamboo color could be a sponge or white-wash type paint style (you can get info on all the different types of faux painting from most hardware stores or paint centers).
Now, that is if you want to simply paint the room. If you want to add some more texture, you could see what you can find in wall hanging rugs to go along with the color scheme, which will help with some of the reflections (you don't want to get rid of all the reflections with ML speakers, SandmanX found that out with his dedicated HT).
