ABC Wednesday—U is for "up the stairs"

This beautiful staircase is in the
Musée Marmottan Monet.  The museum
is off the usual beaten (tourist) path,
in the 16th arrondissement.  In addition
to the impressive (pun intended)
collection of Monets and other works, is
the building itself—a former hunting lodge
at the edge of the Bois de Boulogne.
{Note: no picture-taking allowed here. As if!}

  1. Gorgeous hand rail (a bit of a Minoan Crete spiral motif), carpet, and tapestry. I like the way the stairs and the upper section of hand rail kind of feed into each other.

    I remember counting something like 6 or 7 shades of red in the sun in Impression, Sunrise. The garden outside captured my attention at the time as well (or the view of it from inside).

    Oh, I wonder if they will let me sneak in quietly. I think I hear chamber music from up stairs.

  2. what a wonderful stairs that is, i would love to have it in a house in which it suits best

    Have a nice ABC-day / - Week
