Stairway to Heaven

I've lived in one story homes and apartments all my life.  I had a chance to purchase a 2-story home when I bought my first house in 1996, but I passed on that house.  I love beautiful staircases!  I think this goes back to the first time I saw "Gone With the Wind" and Scarlet O'Hara coming down those beautiful stairs at Tara.  A person can really make a grand entrance on a beautiful staircase.  I always imagine a bride having her wedding portrait taken on the stairs or a family having their portrait taken.  

Here are a few examples of staircases I absolutely love: 

Can't you see a bride on these stairs?

Imagine this beautiful stained-glass medallion at the top:


  1. Hi Michelle. Those staircases sure are grand and yes, I can imagine a bride descending down from any of those beautiful stairs... lol. Oh and that stained glass medallion, wow, just wow!

  2. Hi Michelle, I found your blog through Dee's blog and thought I would come and visit because I loved what you wrote on one of her posts about sweet tea lol

    i love staircases too, they are so elegant and I especially love them curved like these are :)
