I would hate to paint the maple trim. If it were me, I would leave the maple and instead repaint the panelling or the the cabinets so they work with the floor and don't pop too much. It's a lot of work but you will be living with this a long time so it's worth it. And mixing brass and copper is fine.

Thank you so much: just in time! The contractor just called to get my decision on painting. Everyone is telling me to paint all trim, and I needed an objective opinion, especially from an expert.

I can't recall exactly where this Louis XVI style gilt chandelier is from.
