for the love of vintage, handmade & twee

As a girl I used to spend hours with my mother on the weekends searching through antique auctions and bric a brac stores. As an adult nothing much has changed, only how much I'm allowed to spend! This is my way of sharing my love with people who love good design and pretty little things.

Stairway to heaven...

I am in love with painted staircases... I think they are a great way to bring in a dramatic splash of colour and really add personality to a house... plus cheaper then adding carpet!

From the simple to the colourful, I give you my stairways to heaven... and because I am loving orange at the moment loving the light grey with the orange highlights in the chair, the boxes, the dog and the flowers...

These next two are a gorgeous idea to add some warmth and quirkiness to your staircase...

Sorry had to drop it back in... I really love this staircase!

All I can say is OH WOW! Oh and someone has a really steady hand and a lot of patience!

And this last one is for those who lack storage in the home... a great idea to utilise some wasted space... plus you can then just paint the wood and create any of the fantastic staircases above...


  1. I love the wallpapered stairs! It's such an unexpected place to make a statement!

  2. Hi Cam! I am loving this post because when I have wooden stairs someday I intend on painting them:)
    Thanks for the ideas!

  3. Hey Anna,

    My friend just bought a place and I really want to do it her stairs... I wondering if she leaves for a weekend if she will notice it when she gets back? :) She has a small place so thought the stair storage could be a good idea too... is it slightly obsessive when you start redecorating other peoples places? xox

  4. Lovely post. Those white and pink stairs...too cute!
