This has to be one of my favorite “moments” ever created in a home I have worked on. This floor plan as a 2 story entrance- and on the second floor you pass the light fixture on your way to the principle bedroom daily- so we had to find something awesome here..and it doesn’t get much cooler than a chandelier shrouded in black MESH. Thanks to Tara at Essence Lighting for helping us figure the installation so that it would look seamless!
The home owners have a little girl so we needed to ensure our staircase and railings were not only great looking but ULTRA safe. I laid out the spindles to be extra close together rather than the standard code allowance- this a) made it safer b) mimicked the hanging mesh on our chandelier tying the items together. I also chose square spindles rather than round here to amp up the edge factor! The stair case has wall lights in matte black as well as the handrail clips- 2 areas often overlooked when building but not on my watch;)
We chose poplar wood for its soft and almost matte finish so we could seal it and it matches the Coretec Vinyl flooring perfectly. The home owners added their own feature wall with molding and painted it in Onyx black which we used in the open plan living room.
Design really is in the DETAILS.
