Renovation isn’t all dust and divorce. There’s some fun thrown in, particularly in the way of shopping.
After all the work boots have stopped tramping up our stairs, I’m going to treat us a fun stair runner.
Something dynamic that makes a statement when you come in the door.
I do love traditional sisel and stripes.
Handsome, classic, colouring…
And of course, who isn’t a sucker for traditional casual French styling…
But something tells me this time, I need to be bold. I love the idea of colourful stripes, but my wallpaper is a tone-on-tone ticking stripe and so I fear they may compete.
I’m really starting to think something black and white might be the answer.
This is my absolute favourite and would mimic the glass I have on either side of my front door, but I know it’s too white to be practical in our house.
Same goes for this blue and white pattern - great looking - but for how long?
A solid colour could work but I’m thinking it’s best with white walls - isn’t this paint treatment a cool idea?
No, I’m thinking black and white is the way to go - check out this chevron pattern…
And this Greek key…
Or I could go really wild and try an animal print - that would hide the dirt.
So much to think about…and still so many steps still to climb on our stairway to heaven. I’ll let you know what we (I) choose.
