Some might argue that staircases are inherently dramatic — they’re architectural in an ancient way and provide instant intrigue to a room. What’s up there? There’s truly no version of my dream home that doesn’t have a staircase, although sometimes they’re simple stone steps and other times they’re carved from dark wood. We’ve rounded up ten of our favorite staircases on the web, from spiral to floating to grand, for your dream home files. Which of these ten dramatic stairs would you love to walk down?

    Such great staircases! I’d love to walk down any of them, but my favorite is the elegant modern spiral staircase.

      Thanks, Vanessa! Yes, I love the curved wood casing on that one. Isn’t it just a piece of art in itself?

      Thanks, D! And I couldn’t agree more — I had to sift through a lot of really over-the-top grandiose staircases while I was searching for these images! Less is definitely more sometimes. 😉

    I vote for the vintage romantic. Love the flowers and candle combo.
