Stariway to heaven

In our home search we've been looking at mostly traditional two stories, with a couple california splits thrown in there for good measure. What this means for a stylist like me? Stairs....Not the easiest space to style, but it can be done and well. Just check it out:
Emily Henderson you did it again...Love this idea. Love it even more that throughout the years these photos/prints would change and grow with our family.
Stenciling the wall...Not a fan of this particular stencil, although it works in this space. Love the idea though.
I love the idea of adding architectural interest to your staircase wall with molding...Genius.
Don't forget about the landing. This idea of a grid of pictures from ceiling to floor is great, and will bring your eye up, emphasizing ceiling heights or making them feel higher.
As I've told you before, I've never met a stripe I didn't like. Therefore stripes going along the staircase wall in an accent color (probably not brown personally, but it looks good here) are a perfect fit. They will keep a space from feeling too cluttered and take up less visual space, keeping you from feeling like the staircase walls are closing in on you.
Now, let's hear your ideas! What you got for me?

  1. The moulding is a fantastic idea! Probably a little more expensive and time consuming than the stripes though ;)


Nothing makes me happier than seeing your lovely comments...except maybe wine...yeah wine makes me happier...but still I love your comments :)
