definitely bring in a lot of lamps and uplighting, can you switch out the light fixtures?

Mirrors!  Mirrors really make a space seem bigger and brighter.  Like you said, I would also get some better lighting, I really like track lighting.

lamps, uplighting, and don’t use your overhead lights.  Kind of take advantage of the coziness. But def. add some mirrors to bounce light and give the illusion of bigger size etc.  

Not necessarily to help with the darkness, but maybe rearrange your furniture also. It’s nice to see things in a fresh way.

True… I didn’t think about the install part.  Too bad he won’t let you paint… I guess it’s a no even if you offer to paint it back before you leave?

Do you have a rug? On our honeymoon my mom checked up on our place which resulted in a new rug in the living room when we arrived home! =)

definitely agree with the mirrors, especially when placed on the opposite wall of a window,it’s almost like having two windows in the room

Light colored fabric hanging from a wall or two, floor to ceiling. That’s all I got. LOL
