Swan Stairs

What is it with Silver Lake and its painted stairways (see my visit to the Micheltorena Stairs)? I mean that in the best way – I wish every set of stairs in LA was painted as beautifully as these are.

The artist is Evelyn Leigh. I adore her ample use of bright colors. If you’ve visited this blog before, you might notice that I’m aΒ huge fan of color and pattern (as seen here, here and here, to name a few)!

Last year, these stairsΒ got a huge makeover thanks to Leigh. Read about the changes (and see more pictures) at LAist and The Eastsider LA.

Surprise! There’s another set of stairs (one street over, practically right around the corner) – also painted by Evelyn Leigh. These stairs are swathed in dreamy shades of blue and are definitely my favorite.
