Stairway to Heaven

May 16, 2012

Since I picked up the special issue of Domino Magazine one idea I keep going back to is a feature they had on painting stair cases.  (The whole issue is based on quick fixes and they have lots of good fodder!)  I tend to favor hardwood over carpet in my one home, and really like the idea of being able to get the runner look, without the runner. Staircases can also be such a focal point in a home, but they can be looked over as something to style.  Not these staircases though…take a look.

This is from Domino and you can see how great the after is.

 Love, love, love the idea of using wallpaper to spruce up the staircase. Stencils would work as well and could be easily painted over for a quick change.


I am very drawn to this black and white look. Here’s how to DIY.

This look also works well with a runner.


Numbered stairs are another playful DIY option.
