Dreaming of a Staircase

I am having a staircase in my dream house & I am a little unsure at this point how it will look.
I originally had it all planned but it would appear with the design challenges of a sloping block & the fact we have a budget the stairs have had to change. At this point in time I have no idea how my staircase will look or even if we enter from the family room or the entry.
So I have been stalking staircases online so I have plenty of ideas when I have some insight into that part of the project.

I love white painted stairs & the extra storage is a fantastic idea

I'm thinking of a white painted staircase & a carpet, perhaps sisal, stair runner...

I just love dark timber floors with a traditional white painted stair rail

 This staircase is definitely the WOW factor of this home...

A very creative & unique touch, a hand rail fashioned to look like a tree branch

I just love the white on white, its so restful & clean

This is a fabulous design for the family home, not to mention the striped stair runner.

This actually came from an add for smart technology in the home but I just thought it was a beautiful
 stair case.

Everything about this stair case & entry is Divine, EXCEPT, the kid on the scooter....Take that thing OUTSIDE!!!!

I love the storage & mirrors, they bring a little extra glamour to an already beautiful space. I look at an image like this & dream of painted white floors

I have to admit Sarah Richardson is definitely one of my favourite designers, everything she presents oozes class. She mixes pattern & texture & colour with such ease, I wish she was an Aussie. I would invite her round for coffee, for sure!!!

Don't you just love a beautiful stair case, do you have stairs at your house!
