Get creative with carpet to make a dramatic entrance. This smart navy-and-white hallway is transformed by a bespoke deep-blue stair runner that seems to flow down the stairs to form a serene pool on the white wood floor below.
Sneak Peek: Best of Red! The stair runner in this home in Manchester, England, is a Cath Kidston design, made by Ulster carpets. The hall floor was salvaged from an old cinema, where it had previously been in the foyer. Now it looks like it has always been in this 1879 Victorian home. #sneakpeek #red
If you're feeling a little bolder and braver, try a much less subtle use of green and make a real style statement with a bright hit of green somewhere in your home. Here, the emerald green velvet staircase contrasts with the fun wallpaper to create a really exciting and engaging space.
An "Overwhelmingly Gray" House Gets A Colorful Revamp
This style home with the grand entrance hallways and the stairs being one of the first visual points just cry out for a carpet stair runner just like this one. I love the strips, and the colours are gorgeous especially against the pale walls and on the real stained wood floor. I also love how the photo gallery runs up the stairs, all of this just makes you want to explore further. Although if it was me I would have maybe thrown in a few coloured frames too.
