grey & white Interesting that the crown molding is painted gray to blend with the upper portion of the wall. This is a great Tim to avoid "boxing" a room by painting upper and lower trim. Either continue ceiling color onto upper, or wall, as here.
Staircases take up a lot of space, so why not use them for storage as well. Imagine each step is a box with a hidden drawer in it still allowing for additional storage or home office space beneath the staircase.
