KitchenLabVictorian Staircase, Chicago

Finally, don't be afraid to mix old and new — it can work beautifully. This staircase was probably once all dark wood, but painting the balustrades white and adding the white console table and sculptures really gave this Victorian hall a contemporary twist.
3. Entryways and foyers can suffer from being forgotten and ignored — especially when we use side and back doors more often than our front entrances. Make your foyer into a little gallery of curiosities. While many of us may not use our front doors as much these days, we still walk through them to get upstairs, so make this space an experience rather than an afterthought.
