Beautiful Staircases

beautiful staircases

How darling is this painted stairwell with chic lucite handrail? It’s in a gorgeous Cape Cod home designed by Raquel Garcia and featured in Elle Decor.  The space had me thinking beautiful staircases and how they can make such powerful architectural and design statements.

In our own home which I shared on Instagram, I added decorative cement tiles and gray paint to give a small stairwell leading to our mudroom a fresh look. Dino our Sheepadoodle puppy loves it too!

To kick off the weekend, I’ve rounded-up a variety of staircases featuring runners with bold patterns, tiles with ethic touches and handrails with artistic style. You might notice one that looks familiar too – it’s another staircase in our home that I’ve talked about before. Can you pick it out?

Best Home Blogs & Lamps Plus $500 Shopping Spree

Robert Abbey Delta Lily Table Lamp - LampsPlus

If you received a $500 shopping spree at Lamps Plus, what would you buy? I’d purchase a pair of Robert Abbey’s Delta Lily table lamps (although haven’t decided on a color yet!). I love the clean, contemporary base which comes in a variety of colors. I think a pair would look great flanking a bed, sofa or console table.
