The stunning stone staircase serves as a focal point in this dynamic home. Open risers and a transparent glass balustrade make the staircase look and feel as if it's floating. A colorful display wall meets you as you descend, ensuring there's never a dull moment.
The family loves to look out their back door and see the lovely views of Lake Washington, so several gigantic windows were added to the back side of the house. Each level was then given a balcony so that the family could enjoy the views from different vantage points. The balconies each have glass railings so that nothing can get in the way of this family's love of the water.
A glass staircase allows light to flow through this open-plan living room. The glass-topped coffee table mimics the glass railing to unify the spaces, while streamlined furniture creates a sophisticated sitting space.
A tan wall complements the dark hardwood floor that moves through this contemporary hallway. A long, thin mirror with a textured frame is a simple, stylish touch. The stairway is lined with a glass and stainless steel railing for a sleek look.
A variety of materials are used to make the staircase in this gorgeous coastal-style home. Dark wood steps and blue-glass tile risers complement the horizontal metal railing and the white wood posts and baseboards. The blue tile lends color, texture and protection against scuff marks.
