pure + simple beauty

i've mentioned here before how much i love a well-designed set of stairs. it can completely change the way a place feels. when you live in a 3-level townhouse, as i do, stairs are seemingly everywhere. i sure wish the architects of this building had had the desire to make the most of this important feature. have a look at these beautiful staircases, by johnston architects of seattle. gorgeous, no?

i will definitely be sharing more images from johnston architects in the near future. i found loads of inspiration in their online portfolio. so many beautiful designs to drool over.
