Charlottesville Design House: favorite details

I'll be able to share some professional images from the Charlottesville Design House soon, but I thought I'd share a few iphone pictures from the house this week.

Heidi Brooks and Penny Crandall took on the foyer, the front staircase, upstairs hallway, and the back staircase. Because of how the upstairs hallway is configured (with a middle landing and two separate areas), their space is a sprawling area with many different sections. They had a beautiful mural painted in the back staircase and hung a thick rope as a banister.

I love seeing this in a formal environment. I know I've seen rope banisters in informal spaces, but they look great in Heidi and Penny's space.

  1. I want to try the rope idea in my stairwell. Even a thick chain gold leafed would be cool. Crazy or cool, I'm trying it!
