Could you please tell me the size of the pickets used on these stairs? Also, what is the distance between them when you use three together on one tread? 1/2 inch apart? Thank you so much!

I think whether you can do 3 would depend on the size of the spindles. In the for what it is worth catagory: I did some measuring and conversion to scale. I think the spindles are 1 3/4" to 2". My contractor ageed with this. We are using 3/4" metal spindles in the same style (even though our stairs are 11 1/4"). We could not get wider metal spindles without having them custom forged. The other issue we ran into is we could not have as wide a space as shown between the 3 grouping because of Codes.

oh that is very helpful. You did a lot of work !! Later I was looking at spindles which had 1 central post with a design using 2 posts - 1 each side - but also a horizontal element, linking the side ones to the central post .... so you have 3 posts, but 1 only in the stair.... as you say codes also come into play.

We are getting close to being done with building a new house. And we have followed a mission style theme in our house. We love this stairway, and wondered if it would be possible to re-create this in our new house?

Of course it is - and it's all done with fairly standard moulding profiles.

Show the photo to your finish carpenter so he can create a similar feel for your staircase.

What did you do for lighting in this staircase? I don't see any floor lights or sconces. Was it can lighting or is there a chandelier in the landing?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lisa Frederick added this to So Your Style Is: Arts and Crafts
Style Secret: Hand-Painted DetailsWith the Arts and Crafts emphasis on the handmade, stenciled and hand-painted details grew popular as an answer to the manufactured, mass-market wallpapers and other decorative treatments of the Victorian era. Simplicity is the key — keep these touches minimal to avoid visual clutter, which goes against the aesthetic. As with the palette throughout, themes and colors with ties to the natural world always feel appropriate. Look closer: It's not just about the visuals — it's about the message. The words painted in this stairwell speak to the idea of peace, amity and warmth that goes hand in hand with Arts and Crafts style. Whether you're inscribing a favorite saying or stenciling a leaf pattern, be sure the connotations feel as apt as the decorative flourish.
