Suggestions for focal points in a large ceiling room.

My LR has a 14' ceiling and no focal point. 3 evenly spaced windows on the east side, 2 evenly spaced on the North side. Rm is 22x18. The DR looks down from the west side. How do I create a focal point- I'm thinking a faux fireplace w/ a smokey mirror for the fire, screen in front, art above the mantle. The room is painted a warm taupey brown (Alexandra Beige by Ben Moore), with white trim and med. brown hardwood floors. But I am not certain about this faux fireplace. I do have 2 lg portraits of my kids (32"x36") that I orginally wanted as focal points but I don't think this will work.
