This is a design question, not a paranormal one: how can I make the creepy end of my house less creepy?

One end of my house is configured so that two rooms have windows that look out into black nothingness -- into a dark corner of the yard, with trees and bushes about 6 feet away. I think this must be the reason for the odd vibe, because the other rooms of the house either look out onto something (neighbors houses), or have more open space outside of them.
We keep lights on in the rooms in the evening and have colorful curtains drawn against the black night, but still these rooms are creepy. Is there anything I can do to the rooms or to the yard that will make them less foreboding?
