Kacel, I believe this railing is original to the home. (1950s).

would painting wall with chair molding all one color look crazy

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Many materials transfer between the indoors and out. A bed of river rock inside near the entryway continues outside, as does the concrete masonry unit wall.A large, unadorned entry window washes the entry with natural light, while providing a clear view of the exterior vertical fir siding.
Usonian balance in the Pacific Northwest. At first glance you might think this is an outdoor space, thanks to the expansive window and the bed of river rock that continues from inside to out.

Midcentury Pride in WashingtonWho lives here: Scott and Emily Faulkner, cats Pearl and Tiger, and dog DominoLocation: Craig Hill neighborhood of Ellensburg, Washington Outdoor connection: A bed of river rock and a concrete masonry wall near the entryway continue outside, creating a nearly seamless flow between the two spaces. Scott and Emily Faulkner fell in love with this midcentury home while visiting friends. One year later, when the house went up for sale, the couple bought it and made the move. The home, designed by architect James Cowan in 1957, features many of the same materials both indoors and out.See the rest of this home
