I like the contrast between the smooth walls and the natural wood. Are you painting a color or leaving it white? If you change the color, it will be a lot of maintenance to keep up the paint on the treads. You can paint the aluminum with a metal paint. Spray the metal paint onto the metal and make the metal dark to disappear. Otherwise, they aren't too bad. When you get the walls painted, the floor uncovered, etc. it will look ok. Will these be permanently down or only occasionally?

I am a bit confused. Do you want to cover the back of the stairs with something so that the stairs are not visible? Gypsum is the sheetrock that goes on the walls. If you want something to hide the stairs from the back, think of wood paneling. But only if these don't move. They look like pull down stairs, is that right?

I am assuming your drywall installers are not finished yet, that they will cover the back of the stairs with drywall, and then go back and tape and mud all the seams and nails. You should end up with a smooth finish over everything when they are done.

This is what your walls should look like after they've taped the seams and covered them and the nail depressions with joint compound. It will be ready to prime and paint.

You don't really need to change the handles. after a few days you won't even notice them.

This was my goal also when we redid our kitchen. My wife wanted white appliances and I liked stainless. So I started by getting a stainless handle for the dishwasher. Easy to change out and I like how it looks. Thought I would do the same for the refrigerator but never got around to it and now I probably won't.

I like the paneling in the house as it gives the home the classic look you want out of a victorian. We remodel and design many similar homes in SF and like trying to create an open feel in the home while keeping the elegance of these old homes. Look through a project we did on Divisadero street here for some more inspiration.

This RH table comes ina painted black, which might be better and is also on sale. Then go with light or white chair frames and lively fabric so it isn't too heavy.

Maybe something like this bar stool would work, might be a little to heavy though.

Cream, like the accent in the bedspread would be better. Contrasting with the wall will make it feel fresher. Use a nice thick wool in cream ("Prima Alpaca" from Sandra Jordon in Cream is my favorite and it will feel very luxurious.

I agree with the grey direction, but as light grey as possible. You have enough dark items. There are some French limestones that are hard enough to use in the kitchen, so you might check into those also. They start out light and go more grey over time and with use.

Thanks everyone. I am hesitant to go with a dark material due to the floors being so dark. It looks like Giallo Ornamental or Azul Platino might be the top runners. I agree there needs to be a light countertop and I think either of these will present a neutral counter that plays off of the browns, blacks and grays going on in the kitchen. Now what color do I paint the wallls? On to the next dilemma!!

I would go soft and casual, with large scale neutral sofas in linens, natural, bleached woods and some rustic pieces. Restoration Hardware tries to do this look, but there scale can be too much and the rooms are always overdone. I also like to mix in a blackened oak with it, and then add color with area rugs, pillows and art. Study their website and then see the good stuff at www.GregoriousPineo.com .

All About Blinds & Shutters
There's nothing like a new set of window treatments to spruce up a room. From blinds to shutters to shades, there are so many options available. Since you are near the water, privacy and sun/heat control are probably important to you. If investing in new window treatments sounds like a viable option for you, check out this blog to determine which kind would work best for you and please let us know if you have any questions. http://blog.allaboutblinds.net/finding-the-right-window-treatments-for-your-vacation-home - All About Blinds & Shutters in Jacksonville, FL

I usually treat these windows with white Shutters, so that they are more architectural feeling. The other idea would be to put shutters or blinds above the desk, but drape the entire wall, floor to ceiling, with a neutral color and with black out shades on the
windows. It would look intentional and would give a glamorous feel to the room.

something along these line, 18"-24" roman shade with panels on sides. will add color, pattern and height.

So I like the idea of glamorous and intentional ALOT!!! Are the black out shades you are suggesting roller shades? Then more importantly curtains.... Would these curtains be a thick cotton/linen in a linen color and would the curtain rod run the whole width of the wall the bed is up against or would it be 2 small rods to each side of the bed? On the desk wall would I run I rod across the whole length of the wall and push the curtains to the wall side that is open or just a small rod on the open wall side??? Thanks again for your help!!! I've been staring at these windows for about a year now and would love to come up with a solution soon!!!

I agree, put limestone slabs over the brick and remove the mantle. A less expensive idea would be to paint the brick a solid white and remove the rustic mantle. You could also put a white wood paneling and mantle combo for a more traditional look.

Bookcases are too short, or they need something above. You could consider a round framed mirror above each. Or try a pair of sunburst mirrors. It helps so much with the entire room to get some height on that wall.

Injecting color into the room will definitely help. I'd probably paint over the fireplace (white). Art over the fireplace is a good idea or a sunburst mirror. More colorful pillows will also be a good way to introduce color into the room, a brightly colored lamp and plants perhaps.

It is too much of the same thing. It would only work if you can put it far away from the rug, but in an area where you can see both sofa and painting at the same time. A stairwell or entry hall or on the wall of the adjoining dining room, perhaps.from the same. Something with the image being a different scale from the rug, like a large abstract with two colors in it would be better. I like the mirror idea also, in the round shape, rather than more squares.

I often use a geometric with something more organic, to soften all the hard lines. A large abstract with circular or curvy lines to it would do the trick.

We always take our shoes off at the door. We have slippers for inside and we keep slip on outdoor shoes by the door for quick trips outside to take out the garbage or to bring in the groceries. I fall into the category of people who don't ask guests to take off their shoes but secretly wish they would. After spending many weekends at festivals recently and using nasty port a potties and restrooms with mystery goo and fluids covering the floors I want to bleach the soles of my shoes. I am surprised by the number of people who think nothing of walking through public restrooms, parks, the pet hospital, the doctors office, etc and then go home and walk those same shoes all over their houses. It's disgusting. I think going to someone's house and leaving your shoes on is very rude. If your host is wearing socks then they probably don't want you wearing your shoes in their home.

I buy shoe covers -- the inexpensive, disposable blue ones that are sold in packs of 100, and keep them for workmen and the occasional guest who would prefer to use covers over their shoes rather than go barefoot. I have a lot of company and no one has ever objected to either taking off their shoes or using a cover. (Think of crime scene shoe covers, they look the same.)

A shade of white would be modern and classic (Spanish Colonial style of tiles). Another direction would be a very dark charcoal taupe with white trim.

I prefer the first picture, the pattern in the mosaic is more distinctive. However you do it, plan your cuts because whether you see it or not the pattern isn't completely random and you don't want like colored tiles abutting each other.

Rug is great, sofa needs some fun, colorful pillows on it. The room needs more color rather than the all neutrals. That will make the rug and room look better. The rug is more contemporary than the furnishings, so make sure that anything you add (lamps tables, art) has a contemporary look to balance the whole room out.

Call some realtors in the ski areas near you and ask for references of where to purchase used furnishings in the area. There are probably consignment shops or "Vintage" shops that buy these for resale.

I just reworked a similar staircase. I painted the balustrades a semigloss white, the handrail and newel post a shiny black. This made a great impact and could be done in your room,even if you can't change the carpet right now. If you can change the carpet to a neutral, flat weave, runner that would be better. In the foyer, paint out the molding around the front door to white and get a black and white area rug. your Foyer and stairs will be instantly much more chic.

Here's a couple of pics to show what we did to our house. There was carpet throughout the main floor & on the stairs. It was pretty gross. We took it out & put in natural oak floors & stained the stair treads to match. The treads are stained golden oak which I was afraid I would not like, but on the floor the color is beautiful. (I'm not a fan of golden oak furniture) Our stair rail & post had been stained long ago & had turned an orange color. We sanded them down but since the wood was older, they would never have gotten light enough to match the floor. We stained them red mahogany because it is very similar to our kitchen cabinet color & we have dark wood furniture in most of the rest of the house. It also brings out some of the dark variation in the floor. The spindles were painted an orangey red so we painted them white along with the stair risers. The trim was already white which I do like. I'm not saying this is what you should do to yours, I'm just showing you an option. I do think wood stairs would look great in your entry! If you want it to look softer, you could add a runner rug on the wood. Good luck!

I forgot to say: Often wood finishes are very pretty, but there's just too much of the same color that tends to overwhelm people. If you were to change out some of the oak furniture and/or finishes (like just the spindles and possibly trim) it could make a very big difference. Its just that all of your wood seems to be the same color. In your dining room, remove the wallpaper & paint above the trim a color you love. On the bottom try white painted wainscoting or add molding to make it look like panels. There's lots of pictures on this site for ideas.
