wishing & hoping: the stairwell
so this month, domino magazine did a spread on the home of windsor smith. i love, love, love what she did in her stairwell. the massive oversized Jacques-Henri Lartigue shot, which she found at a flea market (!) is divine, especially when surrounded by all the smaller black and whites. so, on to the wishing and hoping part—
if we get that house i've been going on and on about, i would love to do something like this. the stairs are not quite situated in the same way, but there is a landing area that could be treated in a similar fashion (you can even see it from the front door). instead of the large glamour shot i'd like to use the photo tripper took below. i love it dearly. we had a large print of it made as a trial run and it's fabulous!!
