Truly Grand Staircase

The curving staircase and black-and-white fashion photography in this hall evoke glamour.

With its sweeping architectural staircase and white honed-marble finishes, the house of fashion designers Joe Mimran and Kimberley Newport-Mimran has a distinctly Hollywood feel; one almost expects to see Bette Davis swanning down the stairs with a martini held aloft.

This staircase was actually the toughest design challenge; they sought the twisted effect of an old Parisian staircase. The simple spindles have an almost antique feel, but their dark-grey hue and slender, handmade wood handrail lend the structure a modern look.

See more photos of the Joe Fresh Style and Pink Tartan designers' house in our gallery and in the September 2008 issue.
