lighten up dark dining room

Hi we have a pretty large dining room in. 1920 house with three large windows that face to a close neighbors house so doesn’t let in as much light as you would think. We’re trying to decide on decor and paint/wallpaper for it to brighten the room up a bit. Unfortunately all furniture in the room is dark wood and we likely aren’t going to be getting rid of any of it as it’s family heirloom type pieces. Window treatment will be taken down or replaced and chairs will be recovered.

We have thrown around ideas of wallpaper above the plate rails and white paint below, does anyone have any i sight I to that? Hard to find pictures with plate rails online. Thanks in advance!
