It's a back split. And you can see this space from downstairs foyer or when coming in through the main entrance. I would say our decor is traditional. Any help/idea/pics/etc is appreciated.

The spindles don't seem to work with open treads...would consider changing to square. Or alternatively, close off the open treads with risers.

Any opinion on floor covering, painting, color, wall decor, frames, mirrors etc?

If your hallway is wide enough, a console table under the mirror would be nice. I could also see a 4x6 or 5x7 oriental rug. Have to anchor it with a good rug pad so it doesn't slip.

All else works, if in line with your style. Is there something specific you're not happy with?

And console table under the mirror & also the rug ... I like. And for the opposing wall? That one painting is enough? Anything on the console or on the wall with mirror? Or you think that would be too much ...

I like your wall color and the console table is a great idea if you have the space.

I'd like to see something long and tall on that wall or something of visual interest. The switches / plugs are impeding my thoughts on visual interest. An Asian scroll, maybe? Here's a pic of my beach house...I had open stairs that had to be closed as they scared my puppies :)
