How to decorate a staircase?

When it comes to decorating, the staircase is often overlooked because it is considered primarily for its function. However, staircases are easily visible, sometimes from several rooms, so don't hesitate to make the most of this passageway, which can be transformed into a real design asset!

Functionality first

Let's not forget the primary function of the staircase, which is to serve the various floors... it's important not to clutter up the passageway and to leave access unobstructed.

If you want to decorate the stairwell, as you cannot furnish this area, you can opt for lighting and wall decoration. There are many options available to you, such as paint, wallpaper, wainscoting... You can also hang frames or mirrors on your walls.

Finally, don't be afraid to play with the risers on your staircase: you can paint them, cover them with a pattern or even a pretty carpet. 

Wallpaper: the centrepiece of your staircase

So you've decided to make the most of your stairwell? By opting for wallpaper, you can easily transform your staircase and add a decorative touch.

A motif, a landscape, a perspective... there are a multitude of designs to choose from, in a wide range of colours. You can play with pastel shades, warm tones or simply rely on the elegance and sobriety of black & white.

Another advantage of wallpaper is that it can fit in with the decoration of the room from which it rises, for example the living room, or have its own ambience; it's the ideal space for daring original and colourful designs!

Whether your staircase is narrow or spacious, straight or spiral, bespoke wallpaper adapts perfectly to all configurations. You can choose to cover all the walls of the staircase and be totally enveloped in the decor, or to cover just one wall.

Invitation to travel

There are many inspirations to choose from, and the wallpaper will allow you to climb the steps while discovering the details of your setting.

In the panoramic version, you can choose from magnificent seascapes inspired by the French Atlantic coast and the Mediterranean. For example, the Forêt de Bretagne design will transport you to the seaside, sheltered by trees and close to the ocean.

In a more exotic style, the Rivière des Parfums design will take you to the heart of Vietnam, to discover a river lined with rice fields and mountains. If the tropical trend appeals to you, opt for the Amazone design and marvel at the trees that stand majestically along your walls and make up this Amazonian jungle.

You can also play with perspective by choosing the Toits de Paris model. Based on the theme of architecture, this design offers a sumptuous view of Paris and its monuments. Worked in acrylic by Japanese artist Yukiko Noritake, you'll appreciate not only her line but also all the details that the artist has drawn. Every time you take your stairs, you'll discover a new silhouette leaning against its balcony, a passer-by enjoying the gentle evening air.
