House Orientation - Cool house in summer, warm in winter

I'd go for a black-grey-white glass mosaic tile. But i would go for something other than the grey tile. The white tile would also go well too.

You could go for 3 smaller pendant lights in the stairwell . I like Tim Whiteman's protea pendant lights and they would look stunning in your open stairwell.
