Here's what I love about this: it's so simple. It's not that the staircase itself is crazy and fancy. It's just a stencil and a cool rope as a railing. Purely creative and totally easy to implement, but fantastic.
Some of my favorite Houzz pictures involve floating stairs. They're like little architectural marvels.
And these stairs are a work of art, aren't they? They appear so solid, but also get to the airy floating look.
This grid is interesting and practical.
And there's something about the commitment to straight lines, and the mix of material here that I really like.
I love love love these ceramic inserts - they're absolutely arresting.
Small decals or painted pictures achieve some of the same effect as the tiles above, but they're a lot less permanent. Love these mice!
Spiral staircases have fascinated me, well, forever. I love this one, with it's crazy stairs and Gaudi-like curves.
And this one, which circles around a clear core.
Even though this doesn't spiral all the way around, it's got such a cool curve.
And this industrial-ghost look give the organic curve a harder edge.
