Looking Southwest at the kitchen and stair.  Beyond, the exterior side yard fence of cement fiber board playfully painted begs for attention, a strong contrast to the neutral palette of wood and soft light inside.

Modern home with Staircase, Wood Tread, Metal Railing, and Wood Railing. From the top of the stair, we gaze beyond the stair landing below to trees and side yard fence enclosure.  A half-circle welcome mat of jute outlines the backyard access door (see dutch door in previous images of kitchen and dining).  The stair is built of white oak with a cold rolled steel and white oak shelf guardrail and top rail. Tom Dixon brass globe pendants provide "fish-eye" reflections of the staircase.
