Last week, we decided to pull the trigger to purchase a nice runner for our stairs.  We were using those cheap carpet squares they sell at Home Depot, but they kept sliding around making it unsafe for us going up and down the stairs while carrying the little man.

Stairs Going Up to Our Main Floor

We went to a local carpet shop and found a great patterned sample that we just loved.  We decided to go with a grey because our banister is a copper color and black didn’t really work with the banister.  I wasn’t about to do brown on the stairs as they are more of a honey-nut color.

The end result is something I am really thrilled with. I love the color and the pattern as it really fits our style of the house.  I love how it looks with the wood and the banister.
