Up The Wooden Mountain

Andrea MaaseideComment

Andrea and I are huge fans of the power of paint and wallpaper.  These simple tools can really effect dramatic change in your home.  We're certain of the huge impact our paint and wallpaper choices will have on a client's foyer, but in this case, the power of paint and wallpaper goes beyond just the walls.

In this particular client's home, you are greeted by a lovely set of stairs when you enter the foyer.  At a meeting early in the project, Andrea and I suggested doing a makeover of the stairs by painting the risers and the handrail a rich black, a classic formula to transform the look.

An all black staircase would also be very striking.

Our client took it one step further and suggested painting the entire staircase a beautiful teal or deep navy blue.

These types of makeovers are just the beginning.  When it comes to stair design, the options really are endless and you can have so much fun!
