Hi. The steps are made of bent steel plate. The finish is a blackening agent with wax. Since this photo solid walnut has been added to the tops of the steps. Thanks for your interest.

I would add a ninth idea except it rarely happens: “They see how the design worked out and learn from it”. Steward Brand’s excellent book, How Buildings Learn, talks at length about how architects rarely if ever actually evaluate the use of a building once completed much to the chagrin of those that have to live and/or work in the buildings. Similar points in Michael Pollan’s also excellent book, A Place of My Own

Hi. The baseboards are 1/2 x 3 and set back 1/4" from the jamb. The doors were ordered by the Contractor, and we're not sure who their vendor was. Thanks for your interest.

Ma chambre est ultra petite, j'ai donc opté pour une déco très simple, épurée et le blanc! Clarté et luminosité sont la clé. J'aimerais y ajouter 2-3 objets déco mais j'ai peur que cela étouffe l'espace, non!?
