First I'd like to say that I think she's done a really nice job in here and it's just about there. I think it only needs a couple things.
Her number one question and issue was regarding lighting. It is (in her words) nonexistent. Also, she think it needs something else, like a mirror. I think this mirror idea is the perfect solution to add some decoration to the room and make it feel larger as well. As far as the lighting is concerned you have a couple options.

Another lighting option is a floor lamp that extends over the desk. With this option you wouldn't have to worry about relocating the j-box.
Here is where the mirrors and lamps are from:
