Choosing the stairs to a private home or cottage, the vast number of people instinctively prefers the best materials for their production – a tree. Of course, the advantages of metal, stone or concrete, no one will dispute, but still, no other material is not able to bring to the shelter is the number of live energy, warmth and a sense of unity with nature. Moreover, in addition to these advantages, in the wooden staircases, there are plenty of positive qualities.

In itself, the phrase “wooden staircase” is a collective, like the trees, which make up this element of the interior, a huge amount. Of course, the most popular and popular have always been and continue to be the staircase of oak. Despite the fact that the price of oak is slightly different from other breeds, the choice of this tree is quite justified – strength, durability, and presentable appearance are undeniable oak.

All advantages of wooden stairs

If we talk about the qualities of stairs, made of wood, especially if it is oak, ash or beech, they can list a lot. Environmentally friendly – recently the use of wood in construction, not only in the manufacture of stairs but in general, a person is justified by the desire to surround you with natural, environmentally friendly and safe materials. In addition, the tree has its own special energy and always fills the interior with warmth and comfort.

Design possibilities for use in interior wood are endless. Wooden stairs, from whatever wood it may be made, perfect fit in absolutely any room. Minimalism, classic, modern style – any direction is happy to be a tree in their interiors.

The availability of material also plays quite an important role – again thanks to the variety of different species, and thus the difference in the price, possibility to make a stair from a tree for their homes there for everyone.

Small wooden weight as compared with the same metal or concrete greatly simplifies the manufacturing process, lifting, handling and installation. This saves not just time but also money. To ensure the durability of wooden stairs is quite simple – the material completely unassuming in care. In addition, the holder of a wooden staircase is always possible to restore or update it: to paint in a different color, or perform a patina artificially aged wood.

Fixing a wooden Staircases

There are various types of mounting stairs made of wood – depending on the shape and width stair constructions:

The staircase on the string – the string is two boards that are mounted similar to each other. They are beaten and steps. Sufficient bulkiness of such structures dictates the conditions, because, as a rule, a staircase can be found in the spacious rooms.

Wooden stairs have a very original look – the steps are mounted in such a way that it seems as if they “grow” out of the wall. Despite the fact that the visual design seems very delicate and does not inspire confidence, it is highly durable. This method of attachment is a favorite in the style of hi-tech.

Fixing the wooden stairs with the help – support beams – the most common, universal and reliable way. Depending on the width of the design may need one or two beams.

A spiral staircase takes up little space, but the width of the march, in any case, must be at least a meter. These designs look very stylish and unusual.

Sometimes combined design for the installation of wooden stairs. Steps themselves may be of different shape; the stairs can expand or contract and bottom-up, etc. Such a variety of designs, colors, shapes and designs is also a strong argument for wooden stairs.

It’s no secret that I love Anthropologie. In fact, every time I walk into their store I’m taken aback at the whimsical decorations that adorn their walls and the beautifully unique clothes that hang on their racks. I could really spend hours in that store, just looking around and finding inspiration from everything they offer. One of my favorite parts of Anthro are their home goods and lately I’ve been drawn to their super cute teacups. They have so many neat options in beautiful colors and patterns. Here are a few of my favorites:

Ahh this post makes me want to get back in bed with a cup of tea and stay there all day with a good book! Sadly, class and work are calling! Have a good weekend everyone xoxox

It is not sunny in the Bay area today. In fact, it’s been gloomy and rainy since yesterday. Perhaps this dreary weather is the reason why I find this Southern California bungalow so appealing.The rooms are filled with bright sunshine, there are lots of green plants, and the earth tone color of the interiors are calm and inviting. Not to mention that closet space (a wide open room dedicated to colorful maxi dresses and a seat lined with fur?!?!) is what dreams are made of. But probably my favorite part of this house is the outdoor living space – which looks perfect for soaking up those glorious sun rays. Now someone get me to SoCal stat!

Desktop14Today marks a milestone in my life – I start my first full-time job and I couldn’t be more excited! But because my new position is outside of the city, I’ll be doing some variation of walking/busing/riding the train everyday. So what better way to celebrate my new commuter lifestyle by going shopping for some of the things that will make my transition into the real world easier? After consulting with numerous friends who have been doing the whole commuter thing for a while now (I’m so late to the game) I came up with this list of must-have items for my new morning and evening routine. Some of them I’ve already purchased (like the Fossil bag – it was so hard to choose which one I wanted, Fossil has totally upped their game recently!) and some of them are still wants (the bike – hello, Christmas present!) but I’m convinced all of them will make my new full work day that much better.

There is just something so elegant about the simplicity of apartments in Paris. From my travels there, I remember being so enamored by the architecture of the buildings, and so pleasantly surprised when I stepped inside apartments that were simple and quirky. When we visited the apartment of my professor’s old professor (from when she studied there in the 60s) I fell in love with the floor-to-ceiling book shelves and the wide windows overlooking the tops of the buildings. But the furnishings were simple – well-made chairs and couches that looked as if they had lasted (and would last) a lifetime. It’s an unfussy way of decorating, there are no frills and everything has it’s own purpose. Julie Arrue’s apartment in Paris is no different and I find it absolutely charming.

I live in an apartment on the top floor. Even though my building has an elevator, getting a normal sized Christmas tree (I prefer the living kind) up here would require more effort than I’m willing to put in. But alas, all is not lost. There is a great alternative: the tiny tree. A pint-sized baby fur, cedar, or evergreen is the answer to my ‘I-want-to-decorate-my-apartment-for-Christmas-with-a-real-tree’ prayers. Portable, easy to decorate, and oh so cute, a tiny tree is a great option for those of us living in small spaces or who don’t want to invest the time or money into a full size tree. Here are some easy and adorable ways to use them as part of your winter decor:

How are you guys decorating for the holidays? Anyone using a tiny tree? xoxoxo
