The Landing-A Decorating Opportunity

The stair “landing” is not a place most people think about decorating. It’s usually a small space that’s mostly used as a pass-thru.  But I decided to turn my boring landing into a stylish space!

I did not want to spend any money on this project, so I “shopped” my house” and found the following:

My Stylish Landing…………..

When decorating any space, I try to always include my “design trinity” for a well balance space. 1) lighting for ambiance; 2) textiles for softness and 3) artwork for sophistication!

Happy Decorating!
