30 Pinterest-Worthy Inspiring Beautiful Staircases {Interior Design Inspiration} No. 1

Visually graceful, sculptural, and architecturally magnificent, beautiful staircases are often overlooked as a means to make a memorable interior design statement which will be used and enjoyed every single day for many years. The reason staircases are so often overlooked is quite clear…the execution just aint easy. The structural plans alone for building a custom staircase 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. In this Millennium, we can even buy stairs online.

You may just lose your mind for these 30 examples of inspiring staircases incorporating wood, stone, iron, marble, and miles of style and imagination. Plenty of the staircases are luxury fantasy interior design inspiration we would be hard pressed to replicate. Yet there are lovely wood staircases for sale when you are in the market.  I think you’ll agree these exquisitely designed staircases are reminders that while the engineering and invisible construction underlying the stairs matters most, the extra craftsmanship and design mastery injected into the aesthetics goes a long long way.

Above: What kills me about staircase no. 1? This
entry’s proportions are nearly identical to the
entry in our Chicagoland home, and to see what reclaimed
wood, oversized doors, delicate iron and limestone
could do for our staircase and entry makes me nutty!
The window you see in the stair landing? We have that!
Only our window has colonial trim and a fan window rising above it…boo.

I need Cher.

Onward.

Here’s the thing about open stair risers.
They totally work in the 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 lazily eclectically.

    very cool post! How can you pick just one?

    Would love to see the houses in 5, 7/20, and number 29 I did a black staircase and it drives me crazy every spec of dust, dog hair etc so that was a miss in my house…

    the first and second may be tops. The second because it reminds me of something in Rosemary Beach, livable causal vibe…that I can relate to 😉

      Really good reminder about black staircases, Elaine. I can’t imagine the headache of trying to keep up with and live with black flooring, but close friends of ours do it and love them. #2–yes! It was the beachy-ness that drew me right in. Impossible to pick just one!

    I’m in love with 14 and 22 – but I did catch a glimpse of your entryway and its pretty sweet too. Thanks for sharing

    • February 16, 2018 / 7:46 am

      14 is amazing and similar to 28, and who can resist that Swedish or Scandi wonder of 22! So glad you’re here, Marilyn.

    I fell in love with four of them…5,7,22 and 28!!

      It’s so hard to pick just a couple! I also love #28–just masterful! Have a great weekend, Kathy! 🙂

    #24 is incredible, but my favorite, as in what I’d like to have in my own home, would have to be #5. I was interested to read the source as I follow her blog. Now I’m going to have my daughters try to guess which one I picked and vice versa! 🙂

      Sooooo beautiful. Thanks for playing along, Pat!

    #2 is so calming and beautiful. Would love to know where to get that runner.

    Thanks for sharing. They all are so beautiful.
