What Houzz contributors are saying:
A drama over the stairs. The double-height space above stairs is often an ideal spot for a chandelier, but there’s no need for a lofty ceiling on the upper floor. This home shows how hanging a huge chandelier low turns it into a dramatic statement piece, viewed up close on the upper floor and admired from below on the ground floor.Chandelier: Curry & Co.
9. Bright hues wake up winter white. If your winter decorating scheme tends towards pure wintry whites and subtle glints of metallic hues, consider punching things up with a bright accent or two. In the space shown here, a cluster of pillows and a glamorous chandelier dripping in turquoise beads transforms a plain landing into a jaw-dropping one.
The turquoise beaded chandelier was something the homeowner and Gomez both had admired in magazines, cutting out photos of it before they started the project, and they knew they had to have it somewhere in the house. When they bought it, they had no plan for where it would go. Now it hangs over the staircase between the main floor and the second floor and can be enjoyed from both levels. Gomez wanted the children to have an inviting spot here to hang out and read in, so she created a comfy nook in the light-filled space between their bedrooms. Chandelier: Currey & Company
