Beautiful Staircases

Happy Monday friends! I hope that you all had a beautiful weekend. We had quite a lot going on! Zach turned 30 on Friday, which we celebrated with a delicious sushi dinner downtown with 10 amazing friends. Saturday we had a birthday party for my niece Abby who turned 3 (so cute!). And Sunday was a big day because Zach ran his 2nd half marathon! Just when I think I couldn't be more impressed with him, or proud of him, he goes and runs another 21.1km. He's amazing.

To kick off the week, I thought I'd bombard you with some beautiful staircase photos. It's one area of the house that is often ignored...but look what you can do with a little effort!

So creative! A myriad of greens and blues. I love this!

Funky zebra runner. I'm not sure how I feel about it stopping halfway up the stairs.
I think it would look better if it reached the top. Otherwise, love it!

  1. Love @ first sight with the black & white patterned stairs! So gorgeous. If I had stairs in my place I'd probably keep them simple & rather play around with plant arrangements on borders and showcase paintings I made, or other artist work. :) following you for more inspiration <3 xoxo

  2. I love that idea! It would be gorgeous on hardwood or white painted stairs!
