Marvelous mondays: black stair railings

1 October 2012

No matter what the color of the rest of the decor, I love black trim on a staircase. Five of my favorites:

For not too much effort (not even as much effort as painting a full room), I think black handrails can make a huge impact, especially if your staircase is open to the room. Have a favorite?

  1. I love it too especially when paired with lots of white, which I adore. I sent you an email today @SWM….I’m guessing the Emily was you :)

    Yes, the railings are gorgeous…but it doesn’t hurt that they’re all placed in gorgeous-looking houses…

  3. I really love the top one (minus the carpet) and the bottom, especially because the black steps in the last one really make the railings pop!
