What I Plan on Doing with the House...

Morning! It's raining here in Toronto.  I had planned to go downtown but I think with this rain it would be crazy.  People can't drive in the rain.  The traffic is always INSANE!  So instead I'm going to watch movies and visit the closest HomeSense.  

This is what I want to do with my stairs (minus the bird gallery because I'm scared of birds!). I'm talking about the white risers and railings.  Do you think it will look good in my place?  The picture of my stairs is in yesterdays post.  

I would like to paint our master bedroom walls gray.  Either a darker one like this room or...

or a lighter gray...

And I would love to wallpaper the powder room in a grass cloth like this one.  Gorgeoud colour!

  1. Love the ideas, and a huge YES for the stairs!

  2. Hi Sarah,
    I saw your post yesterday about the stairs. Absolutely paint the risers and the spindles creamy white. I think this is the most beautiful, classic staircase scheme. You might also consider a glossy black or darker stained handrail.
    Really enjoy following your blog. I've just started a new blog myself about a house I'm flipping. I'd love if you'd have a look and let me know what you think.

  3. Hey Doll! Congratulations! The house is fabulous... good job. I agree... paint out those risers. Your agent knew how to find you an awesome house but you have it right with the decor ideas. xoxo e

  5. Absolutely, paint those risers. Will that be your first project?
