How Do I Decorate an Over-the-Kitchen Ledge?

Good Questions

Q: I recently moved into my first apartment and have most of the decorating done. But, for the life of me, I can't decide what to do about this over-kitchen ledge! It just SCREAMS "decorate me!" but I don't know what to put up there!

I added some remote controlled puck lights for better lighting at night to the back of it, but I want some decor that can actually be seen.

Our color scheme is black, off-white, natural greens, and silvers. Our look is a mix of contemporary and eclectic. Any suggestions would be appreciated. :)

P.S.: Don't mind the decor up there already, they are just there as kind of placeholders so it doesn't look completely bare. Also, the ledge is very wide and the picture I am attaching is rather deceiving — for perspective, the items are on the edge of the ledge so they can be seen.
