Stairway to Heaven

My husband is a big Led Zepplin fan so I couldn’t resist the refence! There’s nothing like a great staircase to make an entrance or just to add some interest. They range from the fantastical to the physically incomprehensible but I thought I’d share some pictures with you.

I love a litlle trompe l’oeil to start thimgs off! This is really really cool- I don’t’t know which metro station it’s in but would love to see it in real life. Via

A staircase I’d be happy to trip over! Via

This looks fun at any age and I’m sure the kids who live at this house have a blast (I hope that there are kids living here!). Via

You see this Georgian staircase design all over London and I love the designer here for taking a risk and doing something that hasn’t really been seen before in such a classical space. Via

The room here is defined by the staircase- it is so beautiful and airy and I love the clean lines and how transparent it appears. Via

This staircase is incredible- it is so grand and the symmetry is so beautiful- definitely perfect for making an entrance. Via

This stairway can be found in Gloucester Cathedral in England and although very slippery and dangerous it is such a beautiful sight! As if it has emerged from a fantasy overgrown woodland the stairs are so pretty and add such depth to the architecture. Via

I would definitely be afraid to climb down these stairs but the design is exquisite! Via
