To the left of the stairs, make a rounded bed with edging of your choice, maybe in a brick red, then a japanese maple as the center. Larger ones can be spendy but if you are patient you can get a small one (about 2' tall) for around $20. While its maturing you can plant just about anything but after it gets big and shady some pale hostas with large leaves would make a nice contrast to the lacy red leaves. Green hellebores would go well too.
Before & After: Bungalow Seeks Cool Colors

I had a fixed male repeatedly pee on my couch and bed... nearly ruined both of them. After trying a couple of expensive enzyme cleaners, vinegar, carpet cleaners, etc, I accidentally came across the best one yet. Mouthwash. I read on an unrelated post on AT I think, but some hospitals/nursing homes use it to clean bedpans. Anyway, after making sure to shampoo the bed and couch and suck the actual residue out, I soaked each down with mouthwash, let it soak for a day, then used the shampooer to extract as much of the mouthwash as possible, then let it air-dry. No more pee stink, and the couch and bed smell slightly minty, which just smells clean to me.

My couch is a similar orange, which my mom inherited from her dad and I stole when I moved into my condo. Here is the color I painted my walls when stuck with a similar problem: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=30580290&l=7b8f044ccb&id=1455270038
