In answer to the design question on

This is what i would do.

leave the wood alone and paint the walls with a dark moody colour - i like this deep inky blue.



love the rug and the blue and orange

Choose a more modern rug, something with a more geometric print like the blue and white above or this circular pattern

ooh i love!

I think I would choose a neutral sisal stair runner rather than try to match/compete with the rug.

I would change the light fixture to something more dramatic, either an oversized coach lantern similar to:

or go for a more contrasting vibe with something like:

love the drama

The fireplace is tricky, but I think replacing the tiles with a lighter marble is your best bet.

In the alcove by the stairs I would choose a vintage dresser, desk or buffet to display some of your collection and fit the space better, something like:

orange desk!

love the colors, might be a fun entryway

I would also lighten up your existing furniture by recovering in white or off white or purchase some new upholstered pieces.

And finally add some colour with pillows, and even a fun ottoman.

ooh and in orange - double LOVE!

ottoman, and colours
