Small spaces: The staircase

0604_1532

The sole reason I would like to one day have a two storey home, is so that I can have a spiral staircase!

I fell in love with them on a lazy afternoon spent at Copenhagen Botanical Gardens where I wandered dreamily up and down this beautiful iron masterpiece.

Since then I’ve sketched all manner of houses with spiral staircases as the centrepiece!

They are perfect for small (albeit two storey, or at least a mezzanine/loft) spaces because they have a small footprint, and visually they can be very open and easy to work around.

If you want some more inspiration I’ve just been on a little pinning spree and there are plenty to take your fancy, whether you’re into modern or vintage, minimal or fussy.
