Where do I find (or how to I make) the curtain treatment in the gold bedroom?

I hope that you have not planted English Ivy - that would be a nightmare for your trees or garden as well as for the rest of your neighbors. Have you considered painting your door (maybe Benjamin Moore "Red Brick") and then adding two over-sized urns in a similar cheerful hue (maybe "Pomegranate"). If you keep your existing planters and choose not to paint, at least pull out the bushes and replace with something a whole lot brighter like super-green ornamental grasses. Also, this is a lot more work, but one more realtively cheap idea to change the approach to the house, instead of painting the stairs, add more interest with planters or a steel climbing wall and set yummy peas growning on it.

I agree the bathroom is fine and you should not spend money on something you want to totally change in the future. I think that you should roll with the peach paint (peach is flattering on most skin tones so its not a bad color for the bathroom) and add in teal and chrome. Peach-Teal-Chrome is very atomic age. Buy a small can of teal paint and paint the vanity and the box above the toilet. Remove the towel bar and get chrome rings, which you can affix next to mirror. Buy some quirky cool hardware from Anthropology. Total cost should be $50. If you want to go farther, maybe replace the mirror with one that is framed (I think the unframed mirror lacks definition against the peach walls, which is annoying you).
