Let's take a look at the ideas I have for how to decorate the stairs today.
Here are the plans for the first floor.
Decorating The Stairs:
In our current house, I decorated the stairs with a photo gallery on one side and a random collection of things hanging from clothespins on wires on the other side. I liked it, and may end up doing something similar, but the one thing I want to avoid is hanging thing at "swinging elbow height." It seems like pictures were always flying off the wall with a swipe of the elbow. Apparently, I was pretty clever and I removed the glass before the first swinging elbow came to town so it was never a huge mess.
Here is what I had before:
Get ready for an upgrade because here are some of the fancy things I am thinking of. Although, it should be known that mine will not look anywhere near as fancy.
I love the big mats and simplicity of this stairwell. I won't go with the bugs, but they are pretty cool.
I like this one because it is cool and eclectic, but it wouldn't work with a baby toddler.
Here are the first 3 posts about first floor ideas:
Part 1: The porch, the foyer, and the garage
Part 2: The bathroom
Part 3: The massage room/ guest bedroom
Now, go decorate your stairs and send me some photos for inspiration, please!
