CHIC COASTAL LIVING: The Enchanted Home: Dream Beach House & a Giveaway -- the little bench seat with plump cushion and throw pillows is inspired. Cute little reading nook or a place to shed shoes in the entry hall.
Like the staircase. Especially the open rail to lower portion of stairs. Would like to have our stairwell similar to this once we open the basement to the rest of the house (minus the window of course). Hardwood floor used on stairs
Simple in a narrow hallway. White painted stairs make them appear wider and the grey runner is both practical and elegant. Seek out a slim console - vintage or modern - thats useful and decorative but not space-consuming.
