Good morning, chic readers! We can’t believe it’s almost Thanksgiving!

Feeney, Inc (image by P. Chandler)

 

We are so excited to join together with family and friends to celebrate what we’re most thankful for–including you, of course! 

Fenney, Inc

 

And as the days get shorter and temperatures begin to drop, we’re also so incredibly grateful for our homes, for cozy spaces where we can gather–and, of course, we start thinking about how we can make them better!

One of the trickiest spaces in our homes–that can easily be some of the chicest–our are stairwells.

For the ultimate in modern stairwells, we are love, love, loving cable wires–and our fabulous friends at Feeney can make your cable railing dreams come to life simply and easily. And if you think this trend is one size fits all, think again!

One of our favorite things about these gorgeous cable wires is how much visual space they create, making the stairway feel open and airy.

Feeney, Inc– Ferrier Custom Homes

 

Cable railings add a decidedly modern feeling to a space, indoors or out.

When combined with wood, they can also feel organic and even a bit rustic and earthy.

Whether it’s a fabulous light fixture, a gorgeous water view or a perfectly manicured lawn, these open-concept railings allow you to take advantage of every square inch of beautiful view.
