A more traditional vibe than what I usually post, but this one is probably the most similar to the stairs in our house.  I think the two-toned look is fab and I’m seriously considering duplicating it.

Exposed brick may be another love of mine.  The sleek modern stairs paired with the more industrial brick is also a contrast I’m particularly fond of.

While this is clearly not for households who have need of a handrail, I love how bright and airy this is (bonus points for a cozy reading corner)!  Also, can we take a moment to collectively swoon over those beefy wood treads?

If you fear no pattern you could also opt to wallpaper your risers… or stencil, or tile.  I saw a similar treatment with white textured wallpaper that was pretty divine as well. Plus if you use a removal wallpaper you can easily swap it out as your tastes change.

Maybe you have some outdoor stairs that you want to stand out.  How amazing are these aged aqua steps??? I wish I had a place for them in my life right now.
