:: Decor That Compliments The Stairway ::

Beach cottage entryway that welcomes you to the stairwayThere’s no need to let those stairs go bare! Use the space below to help lead the eye up the stairs. You can accomplish this by adding furniture or accessories (like a side console, bench or chair) that helps transition the decor to the stairs and up into the rest of the home. It doesn’t need to be anything extravagant, think simple and small. A few pieces that fill the space and convey the design idea are what you’re going for here. Check out what we’re talking about in the pictures we’ve gathered for this post. Simple, yet strong, statements that help with the flow of home’s decor.

They bring texture to the space which adds depth as well. And a huge plus about woven pieces is that they also come in every shape and size. You can get almost anything from a woven chair to the classic woven basket. You can go wild with woven pieces! Not recommended though, you don’t need an entire house filled with woven furniture and accessories. Check out what these designers have done with woven pieces in their space!
