Before & After: First Impressions

BEFORE: This residential staircase had great structure and flow making it easy to work with. The dark floors, decorative spindles and white trim gave us a beautiful head start.

AFTER: The muted wall color accentuates the wood tones and brightens the white accents and trim. Dark furniture and rug blend well and become a continuation of the rich flooring. Accessories create a line mimicking the stairway, helping to bring the eye to the focal point of the entry. A small seat keeps the area feeling cozy and inviting.

AFTER: Grand lighting for a grand stairway, this chandelier brings sophistication and warmth to the entry way. The wall art adds a sense of whimsy and beauty to the space.


  1. Cozy yet grand - this was such a fabulous space and the after is a true 'WOW'.
