Cedar Bluff traditional-staircase
 

Cedar Bluff

Perched atop a bluff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, this new residence adds a modern twist to the classic Shingle Style. The house is anchored to the land by stone retaining walls made entirely of granite taken from the site during construction. Clad almost entirely in cedar shingles, the house will weather to a classic grey.

Thanks for your question. The wood is Cherry. Unfortunately, we don't have the name of the stain use.

We hand built all four of our stairs going from the basement to the third floor. I couldn't stop my husband from putting in the little round pegs on every step, like you see on a sail boat, now after 10 years, we have to add handrails balusters newels. OH BOY! We also hand built our whole house with 62 windows, with roman ogee and rosettes we made because the store didn't have our size and would have cost too much. Of course I love these newels, they are out of my range, but I would love to find some reclaimed. Any ideas?

Thanks for your question dkrenz. Are you talking about the railing diamonds? They are just custom designed balusters made from wood.

Thanks for you question dscottems! We suggest visiting a local Benjamin Moore dealer that could help you pick a new color for your living room with showing them this picture.

This is a custom newel. Any skilled cabinet/millwork person that specializes in custom work can probably recreate this.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Susan Stieglitz added this to Newel Post
These newel posts are Craftsman style, and the diamond detail is repeated in the fretwork of the spindle and the panes of the window.
Lisa Frederick added this to How Repetition Helps Rooms Shape Up
Subtle diamond motifs stud this entryway. Rotate them 90 degrees, and they morph into squares — just look at the window above the stair landing.
Summer Baltzer added this to 9 Beautiful Craftsman Touches
1. Simplicity. Clean lines and simple silhouettes are key with this design approach: The materials should always take center stage. Straight lines show off strength, character and top-notch craftsmanship. Get this look: Craftsman style works well in an authentic setting or in a transitional home with Craftsman elements added here and there. Feel free to sprinkle bits of Craftsman style around your home — just pay attention to straight lines and uncomplicated pieces, and stay away from heavily turned or ornate forms.
