Is there anything more fun in a home than a spiral staircase? Aside from a firefighter’s pole or slide, I can’t imagine a more whimsical way to get from one floor to another than a spiral staircase that’s got some panache. Whether it’s ombre rainbow paint, colorful carpet or a bold wallpaper, these 10 spiral staircases take an often overlooked place (stairways) and turn them into one of the major focal points of the home. I hope you’ll enjoy these 10 staircases as much as I do. They make me want to rethink our aging staircase and embrace something a little bolder. xo, grace
