Below are a few of the most famous spiral staircases in the world.
Barcelona. Designed by Antoni Gaudì (1852-1926

An asylum.

Fibonacci Curve:
a universal pattern of nature found 
in everything from conch shells 
to galaxy spirals,
including your spiral staircase
You don't even have to renew your passport,
catch a cold on a plane,
get lost, 
then find the destination,
wait in lines,
....just enjoy.

Try not to get dizzy!!!

I don't know what it is 
about this simple staircase,
it is just that I have imagined
 it to be in a private artist's studio.
....I am always dreaming something up in my head....

I hope you are not dizzy.

I am.

    Hi Renee,
    a most stunning collection of stairs..
    just gorgeous...

  2. I have always loved spiral staicases Renee.....they are an installation in themselves and are works of art. My friend has one in her Georgian house.....not the easiest to go up and down though .....especially as we get older !!!! haha. XXXX

  3. Renee,

    Love all the spirals. They remind us that when we move forward we can't move fast enough and when we look back we become dizzy. Why? Because we never really realize how fast we're moving until we slow down and look around.


    A vision board is a picture board book of what you're attracting every minute of everyday. Make it happen!

  4. Fabulous Renee!
    I not only love the staircases.. but the photography... so beautiful!!! and a little mesmerizing.

    Hope you have a fabulous weekend... filled with whatever you prefer to bring on a bit of dizzy!! xxx Julie

  5. Awesome spiral staircases..., so many architectural elements are of course inspired by nature..., and the spiral pattern is quite stunning, found in shells and galaxies!!
