I must admit that I kind of like this novel idea.  The image of the lighthouse turns the staircase into "art" and provides a false illusion of the outdoors inside of the home. Of course, I would prefer a beach scene of the ocean waves and a brilliant sunset on my staircase. What do you think?

 

May be an image of outdoors

I think I would like it very much on a wall but for some reason as much as I love being near the ocean and lighthouses, it just makes me feel a little like something is awaiting behind the stairs.

Clever idea but I would find it a bit disorienting climbing those stairs.

It's beautiful but I'd get distracted and stumble up the stairs.

It is a lovely scene but I agree with others, dizziness comes to mind.

I think I would like it better if it was just the sky....no buildings. It really brings the outdoors in.

I agree with everyone it would play with your depth perception, and that would result in a lot of missteps, or falls.

Nice scene for a wall hanging.Not for a staircase.

Different and I like it.

This is perfect for vacation homes. You could do scenes that reflect the area...beaches, mountains, etc. 

That Lighthouse might be located near this home. I don't know if I would want it in my permanent residence but  cute for a second vacation home.
