Lorraine Vale traditional hall

Lorraine Vale

A nice wide landing has endless possibilities. We chose to turn this into a cheerful reading nook. It's also a great place to daydream and gaze out the window overlooking the park.

Hello-and thank you for your interest in this space. The previos light source was a recessed can. I had my electrician convert it to accept a pendant fixture. I do this wherever I can. It is more attractive, giving interest to the top of the stairs and lends a custom look. The fixture is from Currey, however, I believe it has been discontinued.

selh05-so sorry for the long delay-I just received this notification! I have gone through all the invoices and did not come across this one. It was awhile ago, so it could very well be discontinued. Lorraine

As far as I can tell from this photo, all of the colors in your kitchen are in the warm, earthy tones. I would suggest enhancing the feeling of the warmth by adding browns, orange, golden yellows with your fabrics.
Hope this helped.

I have hardwood floors on the 1st floor and will take the carpet off on the second floor to put laminate. My stairs is exactly like this (wood on the side and carpet on the middle). I was thinking about living the stairs just the way it is (w/ carpet) but I'm afraid it will look "lost" in there since I won't have carpet anywhere else. What type of floor do you have downstairs?

Hi there,
A (carpet) runner on the stairs is classic. Here, there are hardwoods throughout the house, carpet only on the stairs. The functional purpose for doing this is -it quiets the house, cutting down on the echo and noise. And people feel safer descending. Like window treatments, it's one of the elements that turn a house into a home. I suggest you leave it the way it is, it won't look lost or even random.
Thank you for your question and interest in my work-

What is the floor stain?

Yes, please, please tell me the stain color on the floor. Also what type of wood is that on the floor? Is it red oak? How did they get the variation in the staining - through application or is it just the way the wood took the stain? I live in Charlotte. How far are you from Charlotte?
