So you don’t have the hallway or the cash to rock a rainbow hallway runner? But you do have a stairwell that needs sprucing up? Steal Hyla Waldron’s rainbow stairwell paint job idea! Hyla uploaded this pic to our Flickr Pool AND added, “Rainbow stairs: And my husband doesn’t hate them!”
So yeah. This looks like some insanely awesome paint job, or some sort of custom acrylic installation. But these boldly colorful striped steps are actually just covered in vinyl tape by Scottish Artist Jim Lambie. Seriously. AMAZING. I’m not sure how well these steps would hold up to regular use but I’m always stoked when I see bold-but-temporary design options.
When you buy a house from the owners of a patio design company, you’ve gotta hope for an interesting house. Redditor kyky05 got one — that’s how his house came to have a built-in stone staircase/koi pond leading to the downstairs rec room.
Don’t worry — there’s a normal staircase, too.
