Baluster diameter? - Do you know the diameter of these balusters? I have noticed some staircases similar to this use a narrower baluster and use 3/step. I like the look of this one at 2/step and they seem to be a bit larger diameter. Thank you!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Wendy Shott added this to Designer Crush: How to Decorate Like Thomas O'Brien
Use antiques to soften modern lines. Achieve the O'Brien look with a pale palette. Paint walls, trim and ceiling white or cream. For flooring, use light-colored marble, wood like pine or bamboo, or wood painted white or cream. This is a classic modernist trick to amplify the size or light in a room. To counteract the white-box effect, decorate with well-worn and well-loved pieces. Here, O'Brien chose an antique Swedish settee to soften the starkness of the formal hallway.Tip: O'Brien is a master at layering elegant, muted colors. When decorating with white, employ various shades to create depth. For example, use a slightly creamier color for trim than what's on the walls to create visual interest. The same applies to furniture.
