Glossy black, and then paint the front door bright red or robin's egg blue. That's what we did for our home, which is very similar to yours and I love the result.

400 sq ft, high-quality wool carpet from a local carpet store so we could ensure quality installation, thickest pad available because it was going on a concrete floor basement- $2,370. We live in Philadelphia.

If possible I would borrow a large and small swing from someone and see what your baby likes. I bought the small portable swing for the same reasons as you, but unfortunately our baby hated it, but loved the huge swing I borrowed from a friend. I had a time of it trying to return the portable swing, so if at all possible I would test them both out by borrowing first.

How fun would a dark taupe or brown tone be for the part above the windows, painting the window sills to match, and then throw in a great rusty orange door? I wouldn't play it safe with something like this. It's just paint. It's not THAT must space (like painting an entire house) where you fear making a mistake. We repaint our shutters and front door practically every 2 years because it's a short time commmitment for a huge change in appearance. I say have fun and you can always go neutral if you don't like it.

This sounds like such a great idea, and I'm sorry for the stupid question, but how do you use the water to flush? Do you fill the tank with the shower water, so when it's refilling after a flush, you pour it in before it fills? Obviously I have zero concept of how my plumbing works, but I'd like to give this a try. ;)
