The stairway in our home is anything but typical. It doesn’t have a fancy schmancy railing and it doesn’t have a grandiose curve laced with portraits of centuries-old ancestors. For Christmas, I’ve graced our simple staircase with greens and brightened it with mason jar candles.
Our stairway isn’t grand, but it isn’t a “normal” staircase either.
It has challenges like narrow treads and 2 small curves, one at the top and one at the bottom.
But it does have a quirky little window tucked at the bottom for whatever reason … I don’t know why.
Who puts a window right there in a stairwell?
But I do love the oddity of this little window in the stairway.
It’s a great little corner of the house for Christmas adornments.
A white branch atop the window gets a delicate swag of greens
while silver and gold balls are suspended by lace.
I thought the shiny orbs would make a unique valance for the quirky window.
Greens hanging from the window sash accent a glittery porcelain star.
I don’t think of Rosemary as a crafter. I think of her as an artist.
A strand of lace wraps the lip of the mason jar with a couple jingle bells on the side.
A flameless votive gets stuffed in a mound of flour.
And so that’s my little stairway to Christmas.
I’ll be sharing more details of my Christmas decor the next couple of weeks.
Your staircase is charming with the big window tucked into the landing! Your simple Christmas decorations are the perfect way to dress it up for the holidays.
LOVE your quirky little stairway. That is the best part about old farmhouses. This is so pretty. Hope you are loving your pillow. You have another package on the way. 🙂 (thanks!) xxoo
Jennifer, you are too sweet. Thanks for the mention. Your staircase has a great balance of bling, nature, and light.
I love the idea of using flour for snow! Your staircase looks wonderful!
Hi Jennifer, I love your cute staircase. Thank you for sharing your pretty Christmas decor at the Open House party. Happy Holidays.
How sweet is that stairway??? Love the original detail of the window!!! It probably looked like a good spot for a window on the outside….designed by a man no doubt….
Love the holiday look you gave it and love where the window is positioned. How did you get away with no railing. It is against code in my neck of the woods?
Lovely, Jenny! It’s certainly a jolly Christmas! 🙂
You’ve decorated it very prettily, Jennifer! I love how the ornaments at the window and on the staircase garland tie in together. Love how you used the bag. This whole area has a calm and serene look to it.
Just beautiful, love the greenery and the candles.
I love your “simple” staircase! Personally, I like simple better than grandiose. I don’t know who puts a window at the bottom of a staircase like that, but it sure is pretty and adds lots of charm!
Your staircase is gorgeous! Very beautiful and I love the natural elements.
Your staircase is so pretty and I love how you’ve decorated the window! I’ve already pinned it! 🙂
So lovely! I’ve always wanted a beautiful staircase like that to decorate for the holidays. If I ever have one, I’m going to decorate it like this. I love it!
So pretty, Jennifer! Love the greenery. Merry Christmas!
Quirks are good. The window is good.
You have done a beautiful job. I love the ornaments hanging in the window. Bonnie
It’s things like this that make a home so special. I love it and your staircase. And the sweet way you decorated it for the season. 🙂

xo + blessings,
Love the quirky window.
Love the patina on the stair treads.
Flour! Great idea. I used epsom salts, but flour might be easier.
Really impressive idea of decorating the staircase and I must say great work done by you. Wrapping candle jar with ribbon is very impressive. We are a leading translation company providing arabic translations and also a best seo company .
