I'm an architect- I don't sell flooring. You should call a flooring store.

How wide is the casing? Is it the same style as what's on the floor?

It is 6" wide and it was designed for the project by us. I believe it fits in with the traditional but clean-looking 2-piece stock base molding.

Summit Stairs & Millwork
We have several place where we design a newel from a photograph and send it to them for production. I have done this many times. It would be a close match and of course the customer would sign off on it prior to being made. Not that difficult but the drafting time and the custome turning of it can get a bit expensive.

I am currently renovating and my stairs are the same design. I would like to have my main level stair rail connect to the underside of the staircase (although I don't have the molding), just as it is in this photo. How was it done?

Excellent trim detail. Can you tell me what profiles were used on the door casing and on the baseboards? Thanks.

The baseboard is from Dykes- I believe it is a 131 cap on a 265 base...

I believe, and I could be wrong, that it was Farrow and Ball 'Tallow' in the hall and, perhaps, Benjamin Moore OC-85 'Mayonnaise' in the living room...

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: Brooklyn Townhouse Full of Light
The clients already owned all of the artwork in the home, and it was a natural fit for the project's fresh feel. While the carved newel on the staircase is original, the rest of the staircase was taken out and replaced with sturdy oak. Some of the original door casings didn't quite fit with the new, clean look of the home, so those were replaced too.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Interior Trim: 8 Must-Know Elements
You may find that you want to treat the sides and top of a cased opening the same. So you'll take the same profile that's used on the sides, or jambs, and run that all around the opening. In this example, a cased opening is created by using the same trim on the sides and on the top of the doorway. In a window application, a "picture frame" effect is created by using the same profile all around (top, bottom and sides).

Door frames: You may find that you want to treat the sides and top of a cased opening the same. So you'll take the same profile that's used on the sides, or jambs, and run that all around the opening. In this example, a cased opening is created by using the same trim on the sides and on the top of the doorway. In a window application, a "picture frame" effect is created by using the same profile all around (top, bottom and sides).
