The Simply Luxurious Life®: A Stunning Entrance  

July 27, 2010

A Stunning Entrance

Stairs, staircases, or even just a few steps can make such a silent announcement upon anyone appearing on them.  Whether the descending of a young teenage girl to meet her date, or a bride seemingly gliding down a grand set of stairs toward her groom, the announcement of something special, something unique, can be tied to the sole ability of the architect’s staircase.

While simple steps can be a default, there are so many design elements from which to choose that can speak volumes of the home’s inhabitants.  The railing, the floor coverings, the lighting, what lines the wall – the choices are quite numerous.

For this week’s Rooms of Inspiration, I’ve collected a handful of stairs, some continue on for more than just a few floors and one is simply a few steps up to a dining room.  However, they all appear to make their own statement.  Enjoy.

{Just a reminder that there is still time to sign up for The Simply Luxurious Life newsletter.  Not only will you receive your weekly issue, but on Sunday, August’s issue will also be sent out.  The theme will be revolving around prepping your fall wardrobe, keeping in mind everything that the designers have brought to our attention.  I do hope you’ll sign up – simply enter your first name and email address in the upper left-hand column.}

The first entrance is amazing! I have stairs in my duplex but the are long and sometimes a pain to go up and down, but these are lovely!

I need to find a stair runner that looks like that black and white tile. I have been remodeling a house for the last year. It has been such and exciting transformation. Now that the wood floors have been refinished expresso I need a fabulous staircase runner. Thanks for the inspiration. xo Mish

I love the mixed tiles in the second photo. My In-Laws did something similar in one of their houses and now I'm wishing I had snagged a picture.

Thank you for your comments on my blog, I also subscribed to your newsletter as well.

Cheers!
