STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN

There's something so charming about spiral staircases, isn't there? Especially green ones in sparsely clad rooms with hints of rustic sensibilities.

When I lived in Boston for college, my parents owned a condo in the city on a picturesque street in Back Bay. It was tiny and cozy, but boy where the rooftop views of the Charles River something special. Spiral staircases will always remind me of that special city and my collegiate days.

What feelings do they conjure up in you?

i love a spiral staircase, especially how the green pops against the white in this case! i always think of a childhood friend who had a spiral staircase...so it takes me back in time to see one today.

This makes me want to cuddle up and finish the novel I've been reading. Hope you have a great day honey! Kori xoxo

Whenever there's a spiral staircase in a flat it's likely to lead to an exciting discovery - a secret room or a stunning view. And the fact that the staircases can be a tiny bit on a dangerous side :) makes the journey upstairs even more thrilling.:)

these stairs remind me of my 1st prom freshman year in highschool. The boy I went with had a staircase like this and me being the redneck girl I am had never worn heels before. It was difficult to manage in my silver heels and one shouldered Jessica McClintock but I made it. Love this photo!

What a great memory this picture brought of our condo in Boston. That place was so cozy and special because of the spiral staircase. Thanks for showing us this lovely picture, its brings back good memories.

Yes, I couldn't agree more about spiral staircases! David and I live in an old apartment that actually has a green, spiral staircase...and yes, it does lead up to a quiet secluded office nook with a skylight to boot! I am so lucky!
