That all good advice. But did you get that part about that they did it on $400? I say awesome room for that price. The crown moulding you are suggesting would probably cost more than that by it's self, though it would look great. Maybe they'll want to put that, and the new light fixture, on their "wish list," for the future after they've got the rest of the house redone budget style. It's all about progress, not perfection.
