Bold dramatic statements

On the entry stairwell we again lined the walls with framed issues of past editorial s on the designer client; the ceiling of the entry was painted in Tracy's signature "Murdock yellow". The curvature of the edges of the ceiling is accentuated by the yellow and has always reminded me of the whimsical curved details of Barcelona Architect; Antoni Gaudi’s buildings. We placed a very primitive and rustic table in the entry foyer and displayed a grouping of primitive ceramic urns to contrast the rest of the sophisticated furnishings in the entry hall. There aren’t too many clients that will let you paint their ceilings sunflower yellow!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kit Pollard added this to The Princess Fantasy All Grown Up
But I also love the way a dramatic stairway works with more modern trappings, like the wall artwork and chunky wood table.
Here's an example of how multiple framed pieces hung close to one another work well in hiding the fact that they're hiding a curve. Another option: Invest in an art hanging system made for curved walls.
Jason Ball Interiors, LLC added this to 10 High Designs for the Handrail
1. Bourbon Street style. The dramatic style of this embellished and ornate railing with its curling pattern is reminiscent of the Garden District in New Orleans. Makes me long for a bowl of gumbo and a mint julep.
Becky Harris added this to Design Details: Scrolls and Curlicues
Ornate ironwork that incorporates the shape, commonly seen on railings, is known as "scrollwork."
Suzy Q Mirjam added this to How to Shop for a Persian Rug
A rug that's 100 years old can still be a great investment. Age makes a rug more rare and therefore more valuable. Every rug should have a ticket with the type, origin, size, age, description of design and quality, condition, and retail value. Browse your local dealers and compare prices of the rugs that interest you to learn what is available, and what you feel comfortable buying.
Becky Harris added this to Art Rises to Staircase Challenge
Create a grid of artwork. This arrangement complements the gorgeous iron railing without competing with its scrolled design. The designer accomplished this by using light frames and mats that were all the same size on a white wall.
