This main foyer area was so massive and nothing in this space worked for me. The niches were very small in comparison to the space so my plan was to get rid of them all together. I refinished the entire main level of flooring to a dark walnut. I added some dramatic trim detail to the walls as well as to the ceiling and finished everything in white. The stringers and risers are now white, and the contrast of the very dark walnut with everything else in white is so sophisticated….stunning!
