Mosaic floor and whites painted stairs. Oh my goodness I just love this. Unfortunately the stairs would be too noisy in my house and the cellar is under the sitting hall and needs to breathe so we shouldn't tile it.
Maybe we can use the taller wine flutes to put pink candles in them if we paint them gold? If you go with gold you can put together a really simple centerpiece with low collections of flowers, antique pieces, and candleabras
suitcase halves as shelves! i have not seen them used this way before (usually the suitcases are cut in half horizontally while closed--these are halved by removing the hinges, which keeps the structure intact).
