Thank you for reporting this. Undo

This window is 45" x 72" - boxed out so it forms a window seat.

Georgeous staircase - I am redoing my staircase and overwhelmed at all the styles out there! I've never done such an important project, and am not in the design field at all. I love the look of this and would be so appreciative to know where your ordered the spindles bannister and newel? Do you know the exact names? Thanks so much...

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This staircase and window, painted in high gloss white, replaced a dark, narrow-walled staircase accessible from the original kitchen. The Bocci pendant chandelier, like many of the light fixtures in the home, is a reflection of Jillian’s taste for modern design elements.
