Rustic steps leading to a terrace with wisteria hanging overhead could almost make you feel like you've managed to rent an Italian villa for a month in April. The entire space looks as if it's been there for at least a century or two, if not longer. Though age might cause some concern if you're navigating the steps, they're actually quite level. Gently curving the front of each riser with a slightly different arch gives the impression of antiquity while keeping them safe. For added security, a few hidden lights would help at night.
