Well, it might be the picture quality, but that wood looks seriously unwashed and unloved. First thing I would do is wash it with Murphy's Oil soap, which should get it really clean and add a lovely lustre to the wood. Honestly, if you can get that wood even a little reflective that will go so far for brightening the space. For the larger flat spaces (the door panels maybe?) you can use starch and water to stick thinner fabrics to wood. It peels off, and a little soap and water will get the wood back to new if permanent changes like paint are out of the question. I've done it on ugly dorm furniture and doors. Words of caution, don't get fabrics that fray easily (or if you do use fabric glue on the edges!), and don't put it anywhere you'll anticipate touching on a regular basis. Also keep in mind that you'll have to cut very very carefully to size. It might also work on that dark tile around the fireplace, since that's another heavy space.
