Trend Alert: Architectural Staircases

architectural stairs It’s been awhile but we’re happy to be back with a new trend alert post for you guys – remember Sarah’s post on pedestal vases and planters last fall? For our second post we decided to focus on architectural staircases since we are seeing them everywhere (and we’re definitely not complaining about it). Stairs are no longer an afterthought when it comes to design.

architectural stairs Last but not least, this cozy space below these winding stairs is so quaint and charming! Another great example of how to make a simple staircase easier on the eyes. Which of these trends are you loving the most? Tell us in the comments below! I’m actually planning my own staircase update… so stay tuned for that!
