Good Questions: Painting Wood Trim...Where to Stop?

Charmaine is looking for some advice. She writes: Hi AT, we are waiting to move into our first home and I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice regarding the 1980's oakwood trim. My initial thought was to paint all the wood trim, kitchen cabinets and even the dining hutch white. Do I stop there? How about the stairs, windows and doors? (kitchen photo below the jump)

I plan to paint it myself and it is a bit overwhelming. I don't know where to start and stop. The oak wood is everywhere! Help! Oh, furniture and color suggestions will be appreciated too. The house is an english tudor and our style is eclectic.

Please share your suggestions with Charmain in the comments below...thanks!
