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.
This curve is so sculptural, I'd expect to see these stairs outside a modern art musem.
Some of my favorite Houzz pictures involve floating stairs. They're like little architectural marvels.
Especially sans railing. Practical for toddlers? No. Cool? Absolutely.
And these stairs are a work of art, aren't they? They appear so solid, but also get to the airy floating look.
Often, it's not so much the stairs as the railing that makes a difference. These strings are great.
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.
