What Houzz contributors are saying:

Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to How to Get Your Stair Runners Right
This staircase has a really large landing area, so instead of continuing the runner, the designer has used an area rug. Again, you can either match the area rug to the runner, or just have it coordinate.Tip: Don't forget to use non-slip pads under your area rugs. It is especially important when an area rug is not held down by heavy furniture.
Melissa Alvarado Sierra added this to Mystery Chic: Hauntingly Beautiful Décor
According to Mark Cravotta, the interior designer of this home, inspiration was taken from ancient cathedrals. The result is a mysterious and exquisite décor that is rarely created by modern designers.
Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: Private Castle in Austin
Cravotta scoured the internet for old books and manuscripts, ordered out-of-print copies and took meticulous notes to make sure every detail was accurate. Of course, the craftsman and artisans he worked with were a great source of information, he says. "They provided a wealth of knowledge and historical context."
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 (production design: Stuart Craig; set decoration: Stephenie McMillan)Add moving and speaking portraits of dead professors to this stairway scene and it could pass for a set in Harry Potter's fictional school, Hogwarts. The school's set design is largely Gothic, with its candlelit hallways, rich upholstery in dark colors and ecclesiastical design roots.
Samantha Schoech added this to Goth Glamour for Halloween and Beyond
The dark wood paneling helps, but the table filled with candles is what really brings on the goth. Seance, anyone?
