On The Run

by - Tuesday, May 12, 2009

I've been on the hunt for a carpet runner for our entry stairs for a while now. We found and ordered one back in January but the company went bankrupt (another victim of this global recession) before the rug was delivered so the hunt continues.

I came across these from Dash & Albert - how fun and lovely are they! I love the idea of a fresh, light runner against the dark stair treads. Such a welcoming look when you enter the door. Plus, I think Chloe's little bum will look so cute coming down those stairs when she learns how to manoeuvre them! Is it wrong to pick furnishings based on how well they accessorize your newborn? I get the feeling that things are going to get a bit more bright and colourful around the HandyLuster household? :)

  1. I'm obsessed with striped runners- especially on stairs. I'm planning to do that on my stairs when some other projects get done.

    Love those runners. Our stairs curve so three stairs are pie-shaped, so I'm not sure how I could do the runners. I'm looking at Flor carpet tiles to see if I can come up with something similar.
