I found so many favorite rooms at the Kips Bay Decorator Show House this year and one is actually not even really a room. Interior designer Rod Winterrowd was assigned the first and second floor stair landings and stairwell. It is a testament to his skill that he created a space that is warm and inviting yet really interesting. Stairwells themselves can be an overlooked decorating opportunity and Rod created five sections with molding that divide the space for artwork. He said he specifically created five so there would be a center focal point for the wonderful mix of art and photography. What I love is that you could easily replicate this look at home with some applied moldings and paint for probably not a lot of money. You could even pick up inexpensive frames and make your own artwork or frame your own photos. I told you that show houses offer a myriad of design inspiration!
