Back With Stripes







I'm happy to be on the blogging bandwagon. How's everyone?

Ok, so I was feeling a bit blase about my stairwell. So Gary the fabulous painter came and did some stripes on the bias. I've lived with them for a few days and its a major change to say the least, but I think I really like it. If you are going to make a statment you better make a statement, right? What do you think?

welcome back and well done! Are you going to paint the stairs and railing a color? Looking forward to reading your posts again.

I think it looks great. But the lower wall needs something - maybe a large piece of heartwork? Or wallpaper? I think it needs something....but love the wall.

Totally agree ANON and looking for a piece! There is grasscloth on there which is tough to read in the photo. In person, a lot more depth to it. I'm thinking of painting out the staircase as well (even before the stripes in soft white with black rail). What do you think!??

Hi - I am new to your blog. These stripes look great! I definitely think you should paint the stairs white with a black railing. We just painted our stairs a few weeks ago and it made a huge difference.
