Tone on Tone: I chose a wool sisal style staircase runner with very narrow binding. It's installed about 3 inches from the sides (and cut out around the newel post) in the Hollywood style, which is tailored and bespoke. The big area rug is the same, but with a different binding. Larger area rugs do wonders for small spaces!
Bleached Coir. Coir is another name for coconut fiber, harvested from the hairy outer covering of the coconut. It’s one of the less-expensive fiber options, and it’s very durable. You can use coir in any part of your home, regardless of expected traffic. Coir won’t fade in the sunlight and its naturally pest-resistant.
