I grew up in a ranch house and always wished for a staircase. I think it had something to do with Father of the Bride and Kimberly Williams on the stairs – when she brings her fiancé home and floats down the stairs wearing a LBD (and then later in her wedding dress). I wanted to float down stairs. Now, my staircase wish comes from an entirely different place. It is just such a fantastic opportunity to make a huge design statement. I love seeing homes where people aren’t afraid to do something creative on the stairs. Unless you have an amazing old staircase (and you know who you are!), then why not break out the can of paint or wallpaper and go a little wild? -Amy
