The issue we are having is deciding how to paint this room. Not necessarily the colors, though I am totally open to suggestions, but how to split up these walls as they are so complicated.
The biggest problem is the stairs, they create so many walls. Big walls, little walls, we can't figure out any of it. Should we run the family room color around that wall behind the closet (past the clock on the wall and over the ledge) to the big wall that runs down to the basement, or start a new, more neutral color that will transition to the basement. And then how to handle the smaller, angled sections that make up the walls under the stairs is odd too. Would the section that comes down from the ceiling normally be painted white like a ceiling or colored like the wall?
This wall is opposite the three large windows in the bay window. Could this be painted a shade or two darker than the rest of the room as it gets a ton of light from those windows. (cat shadow on the wall, because Reddit)
This shows a bit more of the stairs, and the bit of the portal the leads into the kitchen/dining room, which we are unsure of how to color too.
And last is a panoramic shot from the font door. To the far right you can see the bay window and how the light comes in.
