A dramatic art glass chandelier sets the color scheme and draws the eye forward to the shimmering double staircase in this contemporary New Jersey home. Beyond the stairs, a water feature is set into a focal wall adorned with a metallic candy stripe.
A coir doormat and two colorful shopping bags lead the way to the entrance of this home featuring a dark, rich wooden door and matching wooden staircase. The dark wood pops next to the neutral concrete exterior and neutral interior wall paint.
A bold red and orange runner spices up this white staircase. The patterned rug gives a southwestern feel to the traditional look of the dark wood stairs over a white base. Dark railing matches the steps for a cohesive finish.
The sleek brown wood stair treads match the wood doors adjacent to the staircase, giving this home a sense of flow and cohesion. Oversized windows allow natural light to saturate the space for a bright, breezy atmosphere.
This living room was subdivided to create a bedroom, and a floating staircase was added to the newly extended second floor. The stair treads and landings were made from local reclaimed heart pine, and milled from 15" deep beams. Designer Heather Garrett custom mixed the stain so it would match original flooring.
This classic stairway features a crisp white railing topped with a chocolate brown handrail and matching brown steps, creating a high-contrast look. A rug in the foyer coordinates with the color palette, and a globe pendant light adds a touch of modern flair.
This inviting foyer features a black metal spiral staircase with matching railing and wood stair treads. A glass hexagon chandelier is positioned above a round mirrored glass table with potted flowers. A black dyed cowhide rug finishes off the look of the space.
This pet-friendly home features stunning wood-trimmed windows and doors that match the wood paneled ceiling and hardwood floors. Floating wood stairs with cable railings lead to the upstairs, keeping with the contemporary feel of the space.
As they follow the industrial-style staircase to the top floor, guests will pass the owners' home office on the second level. To visually separate this space from the landing, the designers hung large artwork around the chrome desk and chair and then pulled in a fawn-print rug.
Wood steps match the hardwood flooring on this modern staircase. Glass panels supporting the steel railing brings an air of openness. White walls provide a clean backdrop for the warm wood tones and simple, yet stylish hallway decor including red flowers and a triangular table.
This light and bright living room features a custom white spiral staircase at its center, complete with a metal railing and brown stairs. Several potted plants and trees throughout the space add a bit of natural decor, while plush gray armchairs with a matching ottoman provide a cozy place to relax.
The scope of this project involved adding 1,217 square feet to an 87-year-old home to meet the needs of a growing family. The exterior was built to look original to the home and to complement the neighboring houses in the historic neighborhood. The addition has a seamless look by matching the home's existing brick but part of it was designed to look like an enclosed sleeping porch, a common characteristic of older homes in the neighborhood.
The entrance to the home exudes elegance. An arched mahogany front door matches with the hardwood floor and winding staircase. A pair of candelabra chandeliers and a piano nestled in the corner completes the timeless design.
