A Stunning Staircase for Every Space

In many homes, the stairs are the very first thing you see when you walk in the door.

Whether they are simple or ornate, bare or expertly covered, the stairs can set the tone for the experience people will have when they walk through the door.

In that way, the stairs become the perfect place to create a stunning vignette, a shining moment, that helps define the way the home looks, and even more importantly, the way it feels. We love how the curve in this stunning staircase seems to fit this table. It’s the perfect welcome.

This absolutely breathtaking architecture takes the staircase to a whole new level. This isn’t a staircase that makes a statement upon entrance, it’s a staircase that is a defining part of the home’s entire scheme.

But as much as we love stairs, residential elevators are pretty cool too, such a luxury for hauling groceries and luggage and, of course, a necessity for many. With a chic carpet and a fun light fixture, they can be fabulous looking too!

Speaking of lighting, picking the right fixtures is a must for us in the stairwell. Not only is it crucial for lighting the path but it also helps create a chic design scheme in what could be a plain, boring spot.

From shiplap and classic details that feel perfect for a coastal home,

To even a gorgeous spiral staircase that not only serves a purpose but also accessorizes a space,

The staircase is so much more than just a utilitarian feature in a home.

With the right attention, it can become another one of a home’s shining moments.

House Tour: Seagrove Beach Retreat

We don’t know about you, but we could use a little getaway this week. We can’t think of many places we would rather get away to than this gorgeous Seagrove Beach retreat

This beautiful, sprawling kitchen is the absolutely ideal spot for feeding a crowd.

There’s no such thing as too many cooks in the kitchen in a space like this.

The only thing better than plenty of space for cooking is plenty of space for eating. This charming nook is the right mix of glamour and beachy style.

Speaking of charming nooks… Could this bar be any better?
