Before: Dominating the foyer is a massive, curved staircase, whose presence is meant to draw the eye inward. However, the beige wood of the stairs and railing against the tan color of the walls completely washed out the space, making it feel one-dimensional.

After: A fresh coat of neutral grey paint sets a more modern tone for the space, and complements the newly painted white staircase, allowing the eye to naturally follow the curves of the railing up to the skylight.
