currently coveting: rope banisters
Rope banisters have recently been catching my eye. I kinda like the simplicity of them, and they’re versatility by having a nautical, modern, or country route.
I love the simplicity of this look:
This banister gets a little lost in the graphic Fornasetti Tema e Variazioni wallpaper from Cole & Son, but I’m intrigued by the contrast:
Thom Felicia (adore him!) added in a heavy rope banister to his stairwell design for the House Beautiful showhouse. I also love how the Sacco runner is off-centered.
The rope paired with the round porthole window give this stairway a subtle nautical theme.
Oh, and happy Friday
