Houzz is the new way to design your home.
Not this design in particular, but the fact that it's all iron without bulky wooden posts thrown in there
again, no big posts - simple design but not just plain-straight spokes (looks too modern)
see - no bulky posts, JUST the iron (or whateer metal)
that's pretty but still relatively simple...
I like the style of the main "post" with the square foot
Even somthing like this - almost completely plain but with the tiny detail in the middle to keep it from looking ultra contemporary. Would walnt it in a true black/charcole finish though, not rust colored/distressed as shown here
Would prefer the posts smaller, definitely, but again, a pretty simple straight picket layout, just with small detail to keep it from looking too modern
another view - i like how the spindles have the twist in them
? not sure about the squares, but at least they add something. And yay on no big posts!
Imagine if this had a top railing instead of the open-ended spindles (which give me a renaissanse spike feeling, yikes!) - the spindles below the top beam are pretty
simple, pretty twist
honestly, even just something like this. Of note charlie, what keeps it from being yucky is the fact that the top row of each section has only 2 spindles instead of 5. The posts are still a little thick for my taste also. Remember this is going in the sky - it should seem light as air! :)
Don't worry, I'm not saying THIS, but I do like the idea of having super simple spindles with just a little design feature/swirl in the top row only.... just a thought
here's that other design in a balcony format
FYI, when I say "straight", this is the alternative that I'm distinguishing from. There are many example of the railing curving out, usually at the bottom like this, but I don't think we'd want that, right?
another example of curved out, fyi, not for us
too simple but gives you an idea of the look i'm thinking of - no big posts, very light and airy
you know me and my swirls - i've skipped over most of them, but couldn't resist putting this one in :) Yes, like this one
? Not sure.... you'll probably hate it but it is simple but with a small visual detail
Oh look! That's nice, isn't it?
