Yes, and red is a great choice. That wall behind the sofa and do the full wall. It will tie the dining area into the living room without loosing the barrier that the book case is creating.

PS: make sure that the red you use looks good behind the art. Not that it has to match just not clash.

if i were you, i'll remove the book case and try to show the connection between the dinning and livingroom.. yes the red is a great idea but make sure classic wine are used and in that you'll feel the presence of a dinning

I think if you paint a deep red like the color in the carpet, black and white art would look best...
really like your space....if you left the art you could do a deep burnt orange or taupe on the wall and that would add a good contrast as well.

Is there a shorter wall, as accent wall may be better on the shorter wall. Can you put pictures of another side of the room.

The bookcase could also go flat on the wall be used to house more things like decanters, pretty salt and pepper mills along with what is currently displayed there.

I wouldn't do the whole wall, only a frame behind the sofa and lamps...a dark coffee would be my pick

Thank you all for the suggestions. What else would you suggest that I do to make the 2 spaces look better.

Yup accent walls can make a huge impact and difference! I would get rid of that bookcase and add a more earthy hardwood instead of cold tile if possible.
