I have a new obsession. Finding ridiculously beautiful, architecturally interesting staircase railings, then staring at them for hours on end and wishing I had a second floor in my home so that I'd have an excuse to create such a unique look. If you're a lover of modern lines that aren't boring (hand raised very high!), I can't think of a room detail that adds as much visual punch as a custom staircase.
The fantastic thing about this particular room 'accessory' is that whether you live in a big space or small, as long as you have a second story, it's doable. You certainly can't be shy about making a statement when it comes to home design though -- unlike a simple piece of home decor, these staircases are big, visual art installations that you probably wouldn't be swapping out any time soon. Choose wisely!
Which of these is your favorite? And if you were installing a custom staircase railing tomorrow, what kind of pattern, color, or material do you think you'd pick?
