Where do I begin? Literally... Any Advice, comments, paint colors?

4 months ago

I will be so grateful for any suggestions. I do not have the confidence or experience.

I just purchased a home and this is the family room... Gray on gray, on gray. I do not know where to begin! I would like a white color, not cool, or stark, not beige, I am ok with grays too, light colored. My dilemma is I have :

1 Ceiling 6 Upstairs Ceiling that's visible

2 Wall 7 Wainscoting

3 Stair way wall 8 Windows

4 Stair Posts 9 Fireplace

5 Stair Trim 10 Bricks

Someone suggested different finshes on the wall and trim but same color, like Dove White...

Someone suggested different finishes on the wall and trim but same color, like Dove White... where DO I start? Any paint colors, or decorating advice would be greatly appreciated. I will be hanging a nice light fixture and I will be doing window treatments...I would like to even them out with the treatments all the way around but would that look funky since the arched windows are so close to the fireplace and the curtains would touch the fireplace? I guess that's another convo ….. Any advice on paint?????
