I taught high school for 15 years, and the classroom environment was always really important to me. Some of my favorite things: open shelves that ran the length of the walls with lots of things for students to explore (I had boxes with interesting objects in them, books, sculptures) - all not "too precious" so they could touch and explore them - framed art posters that I picked up at garage sales - either propped on the shelves or hung on the walls - frames make them look so much better! I had a lot of large plants - full sized 6' trees - lots of houseplants can live just fine in the classroom as long as they're fed and watered - here are some pics of my classroom --

Personally, I think the brilliant orange is ok, if a little intense. How about taking some of that gorgeous golden yellow from the dining room and painting wide stripes on the orange?

I'm all for fabric seatcovers or elasticized slipcovers for the chairs -- I did that in my classroom (I had orange chairs!), I covered the seats with leopard fake fur, it looked great. An area rug will also help bring some color into the room -- you can put them under your round tables.
