    The handrail at the stairs is a sustainably harvested stain grade mahogany with a Penetrating Pecan stain from Benjamin Moore and sealed with a medium luster tung oil.

    Thank you! It goes beautifully with my same oak floors, which is a much lighter color and works well.

    I believe they would need a lathe at a minimum.

    Thank you so much. So these 6-7 steps we see here are 4 - 10" and then do you know what you tapered it down to? Are the stairs on the left that descend down also 4 - 10 in the first set? Thanks again!

    Yes, the stairs descending at this landing are also 4' - 10" wide, but I can't provide more detail than that - these stairs are four stories high and very complex.

    I am working on a project now where this look is perfect. Could these posts and rails etc., that you have made in house, be custom ordered? I NEED THIS... please say yes!

    Looking at this image the stairs are 10' - 0" depth and 11' - 1 1/2" wide.

  • Stephen Steinfeldt

    Thank you. I assume by the measurements that the floor space required is 10' by 11'1 1/2"

    The mahogany here has been finished with Benjamin Moore's Penetrating Pecan stain and sealed with Sutherland Welles Exterior Polymerized Tung Oil in a medium luster.

    The walls are Benjamin Moore's Bone White with an Aqua Velvet finish and the wood trim and paneling is Benjamin Moore's Linen White with a Satin Impervo finish.
    Hope that helps!

If you have lighter wood floors and are a bit afraid to go as dark as black on the handrail and newel posts, stain your handrail and just the tops of the new posts a dark chocolate brown. This only really works if the newel post design lends itself to a two-tone treatment.

What Houzzers are commenting on:

Dark railing + white balusters + medium wood floors

Like the contrasts of dark wood against light + white paint
