How Can I Make Tiny Entryway More Inviting?

Good Questions

Q: We have a tiny, rather dark entryway with stairs that lead straight up into our living room. It's such a poor first impression of our home. Any tips on how I can make it brighter and more welcoming? I think the terra cotta colored tiles and dark grey carpet will have to stay put for the moment, but I'm open to any and all suggestions. Thank you!
