Design Dilemma Solved...

Sorry about the blurry picture, my camera was clearly not in focus! My client that I'm working with wants to change the way her staircase looks. The stairs are right off of the entryway so they are very noticeable when walking through the front door. Several things are going to change to really make this transformation a good one! For starters, all of the hardwood flooring is going to be redone in an espresso finish, not quite as dark as the second image. The walls are going to be re-painted in a greige tone. 

I suggested ripping up the carpet and replacing them with wood. The risers are going to be painted white the same as the image below. The top wood rail piece is going to be stained in the same espresso finish as the floor. There will be wainscot going up the staircase to create an even more put together, polished look.

The new view from the front door is going to be stunning! Using stairways as a focal point can be anything but boring, we pass through them everyday so why not transform the mundane into magnificent:)  I can't wait to show you the "after" photos!

Are you having a design dilemma? I want to hear from you! Email me a picture along with an explanation to

I am a fan of dark espresso rails and floors, too. Love all your ideas. I know the results will be fabulous when it's completed!

Have a great weekend, Staci!
