Who has the best turnaround on curved and fancy stair parts? - I like the stair features but dread the construction delay.

Flourish Design Elements
Lead-times will vary based on the company you get your stair parts from.

If you are just looking for standard stock-style balusters the turn-around time should be pretty quick. If you are after something that is custom-turned, it may take a little bit longer. Where the pieces comes from can also add to the timing - if the item is being made in China it will take longer than if it is being made in the country. For example, all of our newel posts are carved in-house and made-to-order so you would only have to wait for them to be made, not shipped across an ocean.

Wallcovering - Is this wallpaper or a faux paint finish on the walls (I'm guessing wallpaper)? If it is wallpaper, any ideas on who makes it? Absolutely love the classic styling of this space.

Hi Jacquie!!

I love thisvspace and the beautiful architectural design of this room.

I know the colour, it is called Cloud White by Benjamin Moore. Why don't you buy a sample for four dollars bring it home and try it on your wall. Paint colors will look different in every room because the light will affect it. I believe in this room they used a semi gloss cloud white for the mouldings, ceilings, built-ins etc.

Good luck with your project,

Sincerest regards, Susan

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Danyelle Mathews added this to Help Your Stair Landing Take Off
Make it cozy. I would probably say this is the stair landing of my dreams. There isn't anything I'd change about the space. The cozy bench under the window is my favorite part.
Laura Gaskill added this to Sell Your Home Fast: 21 Staging Tips
16. Entice people to explore the whole house. By placing something that draws the eye at the top of the stairs, in hallways or in corners, you can pique curiosity and keep potential buyers interested throughout a whole home tour. A piece of artwork, a painted accent wall, a window seat, a vase of flowers, a hanging light or even a small, colorful rug can all work to draw the eye.
Becky Harris added this to Staircase Landings Worth a Linger
If you have just an extra foot of space, you can add a functional window seat.
