Detail of the Week

A dramatic, sweeping staircase.

I've always had an infatuation with beautiful staircases, whether they be narrow, old, wrought iron, or ultra-cool, minimalist modern. This one is particularly striking, isn't it? The high-gloss black with white, curvaceous treads and the beautiful, sweeping feel it creates makes such a statement. The drapey curtain just adds to the romanticism in my mind, as I picture walking down this gorgeous staircase in a beautiful evening gown, as seen above...
