Stairways to heaven


One reason I blog is to be inspired. This is about as elegant a staircase as I could ever imagine. I love the simplicity, the lines, the railings. It is a work of art.


There are many focal points going on in this stairwell, which has a very European feel to it and is equally as beautiful.


Another more contemporary staircase is this brilliant design.


Traditionalists might prefer some chippendale railings like these.


But I have always dreamed of thick solid glass walls with brass accents, which reveal a gorgeous view, of course.

What would the stairwell of your dreams be like?

  1. I like them all except the contemporary with no railing. Its slightly terrifying.

  2. The second one is my favourite. I love straight railings, I chose them for my porch.
    The one with the glass works in a house without children.
    Nice pics, thanks for sharing!

  6. I thought I'd like the chippendale but it goes a little op art on me! At my house, the staircase I'd like is one that is done. Am waiting for the spindles/rail to be installed...waiting and waiting!!!
