I Was Floored!

Earlier this week I was in NYC at the Design and Decoration (D&D) building to straighten out a wallpaper dyelot and labeling “situation” (yes, that will definitely be food for another post).

Took the elevator up, but leaving I took the stairs…what a surprise it was to open that door and see this clever way of dressing up the regulation, ordinary poured concrete safety stairs.

Painted like a bordered installed carpet, it was a great way for the project to come in on budget, but it was lovely and well, whimsical.

Good design can make you smile, and details make all the difference.  For a few hours of labor and a couple of rolls of painters’ tape, a utilitarian non-space was transformed into a delightful focal point.  Well done, D&D!
