Houzz Contributor. Hi There! I currently live in a 1920s cottage in Atlanta that I'll describe as "collected."
I got into design via Landscape Architecture, which I studied at the University of Virginia. I've been writing about design online for quite a few years over at Hatch: The Design Public Blog.

If you're feeling like your staircase is ho-hum and you're not sure what to do, you may want to end that endless search for a carpeted runner. From Spanish Revival tiles to numbers; from repurposed layers of linoleum floor to some really cute vermin, these staircase details make a statement.
This staircase lacks risers, so they embellished the treads with a Sharpie instead. For a party, the owners/architects copied a quote from the bride's grandmother onto the steps, planning to finish the staircase later. However, they fell in love with the poetic words underfoot so much they decided to keep the stairs unfinished.
