i have stairs and i have a landing at the top, pretty good amount to work with. I was thinking about adding a small ottomon in the corner, a nice plant and some candles, pictures etc. Please suggest! :)

I really want to keep the feng shui feel through my home.

Being a booklover, I would put in a bookshelf and maybe a small chair. I think I would use a low - 4'-bookshelf that would "ground" the area, rather than a tall unit that would carry the eye up any more than it already does due to the steps. Then you could add a small lamp or candles on the top shelf of the bookcase and pictureson the wall. I am not familiar with Feng Shui so I don't know if this contradicts the philosophy or not.

It doesn't appear you have a power point for a lamp, which restricts ideas a bit. I love dabbling in feng shui but I don't know all the rules. Do you like something like this (ignoring the lamp of course)

Love bobbi's picture of the bookshelves. It doesn't look like you have a lot of room there. How about wallpaper? Add a tiny desk and chair.

I love that bookshelf photo as well. It looks like a built in which I really like.

One thing I'd be cautious of is leaving yourself plenty of room there to move. If you round that corner in a hurry, would a piece of furniture be something you'd be running into often? I'm a klutz so I have to keep things like that in mind ;-)

onthefence, I'm a klutz too! I have to be careful around tall table lamps and 'floating' furniture!

Good old standby Billy bookcases from Ikea would be wonderful there. Even if they take your eye upward, isn't it wonderful to have a place for all your books! Keasey Interior BILLY Bookcase with glass-door

There are quite a few ideas books and photos on landings and nooks. Throw a few words in the search and see what you find. I'm trying to find one in particular without success.

Klutz No. 3 here. If you can walk into it, trip over it or stub your toe on it, I will.
