I have been fussing over what to do with this staircase since we moved in almost a year ago. I've bought vases, tried color schemes.. But nothing seemed to work! I realized that I want something decorative but nothing fancy/ formal. I feel like whatever is on the shelves should have a general theme? Color? Should I go with vases?? The style of our house is contemporary rustic, although still very much in progress. I've attached pictures of the rooms that lead to the stairs.. Please help, I'm open!
