I plan to take the wood lighting trim out & paint the walls & maybe the trim. Also want to put down wood tile floors. I think that stuff is so cool. However, I don't know if I should paint the trim or leave it. If I leave it should i go light on the floors or can i still go dark and leave dark trim? What color for walls ? I was thinking mocha or latte....ish. Gotta love the wetbar. It has the old porcelain black sink w/brass dishes for condiments;-)

I would leave the trim alone if it were my house.
I think either dark or light floors would be fine. Your preference. The only thing to consider is that you have light flooring now and you know how it feels (light-wise). If you choose the darker floor, it would be lovely, but it will darken the whole area naturally as far as natural light.
I think I would decide on your flooring first and then decide on a paint color for your walls. I think it may be fun to do something more colorful than the latte-ish colors on the walls though! Then some other fun colorful area rugs and throw pillows/accent pieces!

FYI, this is not my furniture. Bought the house but haven't moved in yet.

HI -- If this was my place, and I wish it was, I would have the weathered grey oak floors and paint the walls and all the trim a warm greyed white . But the advice given before saying to pick the floors first and then decide about the trim ,-weather to paint or not. I think the floors is all the room needs and the rest is fine and just your choice . It's a great room and awsome fireplace !

To brighten things up, I would go with a light floor and paint the trim.

I agree in despatches with the other comments in pulling the room " into the light"!
I'd be tempted to paint the wood trim and have wood floors to give a sense of presence, style and practicality.
Do you want to keep a 70's vibe or enter into a new time zone!?
