Q: We just purchased our first home, in downtown Washington, DC and the home needs some styling. Any ideas on how to make the unit feel more clean and modern? We are considering painting almost everything (walls and kitchen cabinets) a linen white, and staining the kitchen floors dark cherry brown.

How do we make the tile floor work for a modern look? Any ideas on how to maximize the short cabinets in the kitchen? Should we paint the stairs? Any ideas on how to conceal the built in "closet" in the middle of the master bedroom? Thanks!
