I made my way to Tottenham Court Road to find the store. The store is called Heal's and it specializes in modern home furnishings and accessories. I have to say, the store itself was quite appealing with an array of beautiful things to look at.
There were quite a lot of sparkly things in this showroom.
But, it was the staircase I came for and when I found it, I could see that it was every bit as beautiful as all the photos I'd seen. It's called the Brewer Staircase and it whirls and spins in a mesmerizing pattern. The stairs were originally designed by Cecil Brewer in 1916. Today visitors from all over the world stop in just to see it. I climbed the stairs all the way to the top so I could take photos looking down.
And I went all the way to the bottom so I could take photos looking up.
I even took one looking to the side.
No matter what view point I chose, it looked stunning from every angle.
I guess when it comes right down to it, I've always been inspired by photos of places and things. If I see something interesting in a book, on a postcard, TV show or on my computer screen, I tend to write it down and do some research. It just might end up on my must-see list!
