Q: I have made the space under the stairs in our Colorado cabin a seating area. It faces the main seating area of the living room. The palette for this room is neutral and still a work in progress, so I am open to color! I want to keep the chair upholstered as is, but was thinking of painting the top and side wall, or maybe incorporating some fun wallpaper. Any ideas? I want this space to be very inviting but also provide some visual interest for a room that is otherwise a lot of different wood tones. The table and accessories don't have to stay!
