Like its hallways, a home's stairwell is often treated as an afterthought. Because we don't congregate on the stairs, but rather pass through them on our way to somewhere else, it's not unusual for them to be ignored when decorating plans are being made. But even a small pass-through space can become a vision for the eyes. Decorative tiles, elegant carpeting, paint effects and art are all very effective in these small spaces. They retrain us to notice the humbler spaces in our homes and they prove that a little bit of effort can have a big visual impact. There's no reason the path to bed each night can't be an inspiring one.
