These are the staircase windows of the house my flat is in - late Victorian I think. You only get the decorative borders and garden bird roundels on the stairs from ground floor to first - the second and third floors (which wouldn't have been seen by most guests, I suppose) just have tinted squares.
They are wonderfully incongrous in what is now a rather grotty communal staircase serving seven flats (I'm so glad the removal men didn't stick my sofa through one of them when I moved in...). It's a reminder that the house was once a much grander residence - home to a middle-class family who had a bit of spare cash! You can view the whole lot on Flickr.
