Exposing Stairs With Large-Scale Patterns

Geometric patterns on staircases are a favorite sighting through Ashley’s Window. Here, she highlights what she considers a compelling design choice for the staircase space: a large-scale pattern.

“It’s a classic trick that large patterns make small spaces look bigger. Many people think the opposite, however, so they end up decorating small spaces with small patterns or prints. Luckily, that’s not the case here.

You’ll notice the staircase is a bit narrow, but the large print on the stair runner coupled with the sizable piece of wall art really opens up the space. It’s a great, visually compelling way to bring a sense of livelihood to a space – the stairs – that doesn’t typically get so much attention.”
