I would put a runner rug with the grout color as a border on the rug.

Wow that is quite the floor....if you could change the grout colour to match the stones it wouldn't seem so busy. Then add the rug..

I think it's kind of interesting, but the 2 above suggestions are great if you want to cover it up and make it less noticeable!

Dress up that foyer by painting the walls a medium gray - BM iron gate

Hang some pictures on the walls with black frames.

Put a small black Parsons console on the left wall between the 2 doors [$45 at Target]

Put a few large pillar candles in cream and black and hang a mirror above it.
