Beautiful Staircases

I am working on a project where we are changing the stairs
from carpet to wood.  The questions is whether it is necessary
to make the risers and the treads wood or is it okay to do the
treads only.

These two pictures are beautiful examples that make a great
argument for treads only.

What about the different styles of art.  Do you like one large
piece or do you prefer the gallery style?

And finally, what do you think of the large lantern?


  1. No matter what you do with the stairs, wood or otherwise, put a runner down. We didn't when we first moved into our home and I nearly slid all the way down our stairs. Love all the pictures on the wall so I guess gallery style fits me and that lantern....JEALOUS!

  2. I personally love the large piece of art in the first image and I think the lantern fits the area nicely...I like it.

    I like the look of risers and treads in wood but perhaps not if you have small children.



Thank you for visiting Illumination! It is so fun to share ideas and inspiration.

All the best - always,
