Poppytalk's pinterest. I can't think what to say about it in a way. It's almost too perfect! (The pedant in me says that perfection is finite and therefore you cannot be 'too perfect'...It's a bit like being very unique. It's impossible.)(Minor rant over!) The whole set up is gorgeous. Although I don't like pink at all, the choice is so bright and energising. The use of a gloss finish is practical and also pulls the gloss finish of the floor up the stairs creating continuity despite the contrast of wood against white and colour. Finally the rug in the foreground pulls the striped affect of the stairs down to the floor, but doesn't ape it because it uses that lovely contrasting tangerine colour and sits at right angles!
Too perfect? Maybe!
Got me thinking about other interesting ways to 'display' stairs at home. I found some wonderful examples!
I'm sure there are millions more creative options for ways you could attack your stairs, but I'm leaving it at that, ways I think are achievable with little to no budget!
