Stairway to Heaven

I think I’m obsessed with stairs. Climbing stairs, looking at stairs, seeing stairs in movies. I don’t know what it is. They are just dreamy.

So, today while I’m linking up with The Vintage Apple for Oh, How Pinteresting Wednesday I thought I’d share some of my snazzy stairway finds with you.

I found random stairs. Stairs I would never want to climb, swirly stairs, floating stairs, neon stairs…

And, I found a million sets of staircases that I love and wouldn’t mind having in my future home. Here are some of my favorites:

 
 
 
 
 
 

 

Did you notice the animal print carpet on that last one? Can’t say I’ve ever seen that before!

I could go on and on but I don’t want to bore you with endless pictures of stairs (no matter how exhilarating that sounds to ME!) I assure you, pretty soon I’m just going to have to create a board on Pinterest dedicated strictly to staircases. Sigh.

I’d love to hear which staircase is your favorite! Am I the only one with this obsession? Anyway, go link up and show off your latest pins :)

I love grand staircases that are long and wrap around. the one with the Chandelier is perfect!

I love staircases too... Though after living in a ranch-style home I would be okay not having stairs in my house - ever. I can appreciate their beauty though :) One of the homes we visited in the HomeFest here in Norman had leopard carpet on the stairs up to the bonus room. Jon hated it but I kind of really loved it, it just "worked" with the house, you know?

First off, you are TOO cute and I LOVE all the stairs! My mom had her stair case tiled in her house and I almost slip down them every time I wear heels..ha! They look great though!
XOXO,

I love the HUGE staircases, have you seen the ones where the planks open up for storage? awesome idea. also, those stairs that are just planks coming out of the wall? I would get so dizzy walking up those!!!

staircases are SO cool! the grander the better! but i really love the animal print one at the bottom...that screams me

i think having a staircase that is awesome will be required when I buy a house (whenever that may be)

K_stets said...

That first set of stairs in insane! But I want them....or all of the ones in the pictures.

Courtney said...

Wow, those first set of stairs are crazy!! I definitely agree that I would never want to climb them!

I love the first set of "good" stairs painted aqua...they are so cute!

Nicole Marie said...

obsessed with the coral stairs though

Cait said...

Suzzie V said...

haha I love that you love stairs. that's cute. I like the ones that are neon!! so cool!

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

OK I have a weird confession...I am afraid of stairs lol! But just the ones that aren't solid like the 3rd and 6th pictures. I know, I'm weird. I think it's because I am terrified of heights. All of the other staircases are beautiful though!

Lindsay @ Delighted Momma said...

Woaa woaaa!! ALL of these are amazing!! I think the wooden ones are my favorite! That would be pretty awesome to have stairs like in my house for sure!

XO

the first two look like they would be quite the adventure to climb hehe... but the rest are so gorgeous! specially the spiral ones :)

Emily said...

Hi Chelsea, I'm a new reader and I love your blog! :D

I've always loved stairs too so when I saw this post, I knew I had to comment!

My favorites are the spiral ones and the big breezy white one with the giant chandelier and doors open to the outside.

My dream house would have a big cherrywood spiral staircase and a giant domed library with rolling ladders (not stairs, but close).

Your blog is great! Please check out mine: opinionsareimmunity.blogspot.com
