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!
LOVE THIS CARPET! Herringbone is a good choice if you don't have much of an entryway and need a wow factor, or if you're looking to disguise dirt. Great option for the stairs to the bonus room and in the room.
Dart Midnight Blue stair runner from Roger Oates #StairsandStripes Love this runner. Carpet on stairs is very important to me for safety. Do not want hard wood or laminate stairs. But there is already carpet cut into stairs so replace. Love this look and the colors.
