Don’t you love it when an artfully designed

staircase becomes much more than a functional

way up or down?

Visually graceful, sculptural, and architecturally

interesting, staircases are often overlooked

as a means to make a memorable personal statement

to be enjoyed every single day for many years, and

the reason is quite clear: it aint easy.

The structural plans alone can be daunting.

So when extra care and attention is given to

the design and materials for creating a

masterful staircase…oh, my, what

wondrous results may emerge.

Here are 26 examples of inspiring staircases,

plenty of them luxury fantasy-types we are

unlikely to replicate (don’t you dare send me

a ranting email about how it’s silly

I post these unattainable architectural

wonders…dude, Hello Lovely is always

going to deliver fair doses of fantasy!),

but all of them reminders

that while the engineering of the stairs

reigns important, the extra mastery

injected into the aesthetics makes life

more beautiful and more abundant.

Meet me at the finish line and let me know

which staircase is your favorite!

Onward.

What kills me about the image above is that this
entry’s proportions are just about identical to the
entry in my own cottage, and to see what reclaimed
wood, oversized doors, delicate iron and limestone
could do makes me nutty! We even have that
window you see in the stair landing, only ours
has colonial trim and a fan window above it…boo.

Here’s the thing about open stair risers.
They totally work in this minimalist space
above, but the carpeted ones in our fixer upper
looked ridiculous paired with the traditional
décor and finishes around them…in most cases,
you cannot simply combine all of your
favorite architectural elements (colonial trim,
open stair risers, and ’70s shag carpet, for example)
and expect them to work eclectically.

about in this story.

No. 25 and its impossibly sculpted stone
looks otherworldly yet mysteriously organic, oui?

It reminds me a wee bit of the broken down
beauty of Chateau de Gudanes,
which you must read about in this story
if you missed it!

 The chateau (above) is being lovingly restored by its owners
who are treading lightly, and leaving it in an ‘undone’
and ‘undisturbed’ state as much as possible.
(Obvi the image reflects the renovation’s beginnings.)

The staircase above is also Chateau de Gudanes,

Let’s visit one more inspiring staircase, this one
a bit more down to earth but no less remarkable.

    No "chops bustin" for the posts coming from me dear Lady! I love your posts and even if I may never be fortunate to have the grandeur, I completely 100% LOVE seeing and dreaming of them. The only complaint I have is that there is absolutely NO WAY to pick a fave from this list. Just no way at all…I love the simplistic minimal staircase right on up to the palace staircase….ok, maybe I will bust your chops for asking to pick a favorite!! LOL! Hope you are well and that your summer is starting out beautiful. Keep these design posts coming! Love them!

    Hi Michelle, A mind-blowing post today! Those spiral staircases are amazing and a little dizzying! I'm hard pressed to choose a favorite, I'm loving them all but the staircases with the blue and white tiles are particularly speaking my language 🙂 Have a great Tuesday my friend!

      Truly a show stopper and makes me wonder why we all don't realize it's worth the time and cash to make a statement with our stairs! thanks for stopping, friend!
