Mirabel Street Residence

As a Queen Anne Victorian, the decorative façade of this residence was restored while the interior was completely reconfigured to honor a contemporary lifestyle. The hinged "bay window" garage door is a primary component in the renovation. Given the parameters of preserving the historic character, the motorized swinging doors were constructed to match the original bay window. Though the exterior appearance was maintained, the upper two units were combined into one residence creating an opportunity to open the space allowing for light to fill the house from front to back. An expansive North facing window and door system frames the view of downtown and connects the living spaces to a large deck. The skylit stair winds through the house beginning as a grounded feature of the entry and becoming more transparent as the wood and steel structure are exposed and illuminated.

I'd rather have the color of the wood stairs and the wood on the hand rail match. Is this now the white will look for the riser and the side of the stairs?
