This style home with the grand entrance hallways and the stairs being one of the first visual points just cry out for a carpet stair runner just like this one. I love the strips, and the colours are gorgeous especially against the pale walls and on the real stained wood floor. I also love how the photo gallery runs up the stairs, all of this just makes you want to explore further. Although if it was me I would have maybe thrown in a few coloured frames too.
If you have a tight bathroom it's still possible to create a larger shower space. This project used a wet room system. Learn how to design a larger shower in this article http://blog.innovatebuildingsolutions.com/2015/05/09/large-shower-making-bathroom-bigger/
