Houzz is the new way to design your home.
the tongue and groove paneling; the expanded first step and the baluster design...also, the bookshelf niche
newel posts and pickets
the curve, the newel post and the wainscoating and colors
partially open wall into living room and the newel,railing and pickets
runner on stairs, newel posts and rail color; wainscoating
similar to my house
niche idea with drawers.....breaks up the wall better than if it were solid drawers and fun for a family house
I like the first two treads, the infill instead of pickets and the casing wrapping the entry to the next room; sconces;
similar layout to mine; newel post
love the whole idea...
