The Next Level...



We live on the bottom floor of our condo unit, so we don't have to go up and down stairs everyday (except a few exterior ones). But I always think about how I would like my stairs designed in my home one day. Stairs are an essential design element to consider, when needed. Do you conceal them behind walls or proudly display them at the entrance of your home? Contemporary or traditional or both? What materials to use on the railing, treads, and risers? Cover or leave exposed? How do you like your stairs? I hope you enjoy these stair designs that would be enjoyable to take you to another level.

Probably a toss-up, but I love that dimly lit photo of the winding staircase...the one with the vases in the corner below. Absolutely gorgeous!

Great blog, btw:)

Oh I just love your blog! Such inspiration! That first photo is so gorgeous! I love the details in the wood floor, the front door, the white beaded walls, and of course the stairs- it's very pretty! Daisy~
