What to do...what to do...opinions and suggestions welcome !!!

My dilema...we are about to stage a beautiful home. However the homeowner

won't let us paint this stairwell. It might be hard to see but the paint is

textured in a dijon sort of yellow with copper veins painted in by hand

as well as the rest of the paint technique that was applied.  The challenge

I have is trying to get the rest of the house to flow when this one, and major area,

I can't change. (Funny how these challenges come about... this is the one area

I really really wanted to paint...to tone down...to calm down...

 

We are allowed to have the orange painted away. Lots of oak. Green ceramic floors

also untouchable...I need something soothing and elegant....

 

 

 

 

 

Please...any suggestions you have will be welcome. Louise suggested

the Benjamin Moore Tiramisu (CC 486 I think) to replace the orange in

both the foreground and the background of this last photo.

Sometimes you can't convince people to paint. I just had that problem. Getting rid of the excess greenery and vase of flowers flowers will help. How about an area rug that will soften the green tiles and tie in whatever other colors are going on? Good luck!

Interesting dilemma, Michelle.  We've all been there. I like to present my staging recommendations in terms of numbers and business strategy.  About half the population hates the colour orange.  Most of the population no longer likes faux finishing.  Do you really want to take the chance of appealing to a minority of buyers -- and turning off a majority of them -- for the sake of a few hundred dollars?  Good luck! -- Tanya in Montreal

I would strongly try to persuade them to paint, it's cheap to do (relatively speaking) and perhaps a neutral, soft, round area rug to tone down the green tile?
