My advice is to do nothing (maybe some painting) until you've lived there a while. Take some time and see how the house fits the way you live. Take your time...

You've a beautiful home. Locate a qualified interior designer who reflects your esthetic for a few consultations in your home. They would be able to examine your lighting and decor close up. On my computer screen the existing paint palette looks cool but the flooring and some of your decor items looks warm. A good designer would be able to recommend what colors could achieve your goal.

May even have a black accent wall, under the stairs. I like to color in a copy of the room to see what I like. Easier than painting and hating it.

Sometime, the nightmare becomes the neighbors'. The owner of the house behind our weekend house wasn't able to sell for his wildly optimistic price so he decided to rent it out, including as a wedding venue. Many weekends, there were 150-175 people for whom there wasn't adequate parking plus the septic system wasn't designed with that kind of use in mind and all of us downhill owners were quite nervous about it. The renters wanted absolute peace and quiet for their special day, but we all had yard work to do and lives to live. It was not fun.

Someone complained to the county, and they limited the weddings to two a year. And after we put up a gate and a no trespassing sign, the owner finally stopped telling his guests to trespass across our property to get to the beach. But, we still all hate the turnover and noise every week, and wish it could be banned completely. Be prepared for unhappy neighbors if your place becomes a popular destination.

We rented out our beach home at a popular vacation destination. It was too heart breaking to come back to see the destruction that we stopped renting. Don't make your rental property too personal! Use throw away furniture, and cheap accessories, that way when the things are broken or simply disappear, you won't be too upset.
