Intimate family home overlooking the water in the woods of Maine. Use of prefabricated wood attic trusses and vinyl clad windows met a tight construction budget. Expanisve windows allow for beautiful views. Crisp lines and white pallette give the home an airy, cottage feel.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Even though this "balustrade/railing" is actually part of a stairway inside a home...I had to include it in this Ideabook since this design could easily be re-created for a porch balustrade. Do you live in a home sporting a special or unique balustrade design? Is there a home in your neighborhood with whimsical balusters? Please share pics if you have them...would love to see!

8. Cut it out. The white railing with the detailed cutouts keeps this railing simple and interesting. It's a staircase version of a white picket fence.
4. Accent intricate designs. Interesting architecture becomes a study in shapes when done in a white-on-white scheme. Instead of being busy, the designs appear more intricate and slide into one another when given coats of cleansing white.
Samantha Schoech added this to 11 Real-Life Gingerbread Houses
Gingerbread details like these balustrades show up in interiors too. This all-white, open-beam beauty mixes stark and modern with detailed and Victorian.

I really like these balustrades with pretty little cut-out details. I've usually considered them more appropriate for decks, but they might work in the white room, and the white would be an appropriate colour for them, so the room wouldn't look too busy.

I really like these balustrades. I think this type of balustrade is usually more appropriate for decks, but inside or out, it's nice to have these pretty little details repeated in the wooden rails. Also, the white would be appropriate if we were to make the stairs to the attic from the little white room. "Interesting architecture becomes a study in shapes when done in a white-on-white scheme.
