Exposed-brick hallway with spiral staircase

Exposed bricks and solid-oak flooring make for a super-impressive spiral staircase, where architectural design meets rustic materials. This look is all about the materials, so the oak treads have been given a very neutral-looking varnish that highlights their natural variation. A slimline handrail and white paint under the stair keep the scheme uncluttered.

White hallway with grey painted stair runner

White hallway with grey painted stair runner

Take an innovative approach to painting your staircase. Rather than one colour of paint, choose two so that you create the effect of a stair runner. Paint banisters white so the grey really stands out and you don’t have lots of different shades to confuse the look. And make masking tape your friend to get a straight line.

This fabulously exotic mix of peacock features and jaguars consciously clashes with the door’s colourful stained class window and the patterned rug.
