I'm not sure what you are asking about. Can you be more specific? The stairs shown are the original oak treads. We sanded them down and applied a custom Wenge color stain. The rails, balusters and newels are all custom, solid walnut.

I think putting a light on top of that art in the stairway can make a difference!

Thanks for the idea but it's a mirror and I don't think it would be appropriate in this case.

Color of the balusters - Can you please tell me which stain color was used for the newels and balusters?

Thanks for your inquiry! The steps are oak, the newel and balusters are all walnut. The stain colors were completely custom. We tinted them by hand to produce the final colors as we needed enough of the amber tones to bleed through so that multiple woods used in the project would work nicely together. I rarely if ever use stain out of a can. There's more to it than that. Thanks!!

Hi - Approximately 44-46" I believe the runner is 30-32"

What Houzz contributors are saying:

For example, when Americans travel to the U.K. or Australia, they might be confused about what floor they’re on. There the first floor is located on what Americans would call the second. And what we call the first floor, they call the ground floor.So, if you’re ever in, say, London or Sydney, you actually have to ascend a flight of stairs to reach the first floor.
