Friday Fun: Staircase to Heaven

It was the staircase which sold the house in England to me 10+ years ago. The stairs were dark, dingy, very 70s, but they turned the corner in a large hallway (not at all common in UK homes) and had a gallery running all the way around the first floor. I’ve repainted the wood and got rid of the wallpaper, but I have great plans for that staircase…

Meanwhile, here are some staircases which might inspire you.

  1. Actually, those are all so marvellous I can’t choose one! (Though I do like all the storage in the first one).

  2. I love these, Marina Sofia! And when my daughter was young, she would have adored the spiral with the slide. For me, though, I think the book-lined staircase would be my choice. So convenient for remaining in denial about the TBR…
