Good Questions: Art for Dining Room Wall?

Hi Apartment Therapy, I need some help. After moving to Evanston for grad school, I took the opportunity to shed my undergrad furniture and start from scratch to put together a beautiful place to live in. I went for a contemporary look, with a color palette of deep chocolate brown, khaki, and dark red... Most of the apartment is getting there, but I am stuck in the dining room (shown in the attached photo). My boyfriend and I painted an accent wall chocolate brown, and the rest khaki. We bought a beautiful dining set, and now have a bar corner as well (not actually in the photo, but it is on the right side, to the right of the doorway). But I can't find something to put on the wall behind the dining set. This wall is really the major focal point of the apartment, which has a fairly open floor plan. I'd like something dramatic, and preferably something with red in it to tie together with the adjacent rooms. The problem is that it's a big space, and I'm on a small budget- maybe $200 max. I've already looked at Pier 1, Ikea and all the CB2 Marimekko wall hangings (actually have the Tuuli one in the entryway), and I haven't found anything. I am hoping that Apartment Therapy readers will have some advice for me! Thanks in advance! Lisa Readers, lend your artful eye to Lisa...
