Painted wood balusters and risers - I am looking for an alternative to white balusters and risers. Does anyone have any interesting pictures? My treads and handrails are dark stained wood.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Beth Dotolo, RID, ASID added this to Underfoot: Your Guide to Hide
Natural Color: Hereford. The hereford cowhide may be the quintessential cowhide. It is one of the warmer types of cowhides, showing off reddish-brown tones contrasting with stark white.
For contemporary interiors the glass rail seems to be the norm. The light and transparency allow the geometry of the stair itself and the space all around to come through.
