Staircase = Bookcase = WANT.

A quick list-free post from me this morning, to share something I saw yesterday which I cannot get out of my head, I want it so much. I suppose it is kind of related to the list, seeing as how I'm attempting to declutter and organise my life, and a large part of that are the millions of books lying around the house with nowhere to live. This staircase would solve that problem, as well as filling me with utter delight every time I walk up and down it.

I spend a lot of time sitting on the stairs, as it's where I tend to conduct my phone conversations. Imagine sitting on this staircase, and having all those lovely spines to look at while talking, or just climbing up and down, looking for a book ... I don't think I've ever wanted anything so much in my life.

Although, with Jamie being as accident prone as he is (the aforementioned accident which kept him off work over the summer was falling from the very top to the very bottom of the stairs), a polished wood staircase might not be the best idea.

Maybe we could install a lift for him to use.

Oh my god I'm drooling. That is GORGEOUS! And such a good use of space. Very impressive.

I know, can you imagine how much it would cost though? It's a definite for if we ever build our own house though, it would be so cool. We might have to cover the treads with chicken wire though, to stop any slipping.
