This month I want to share with you something I am really excited about. We’ve just installed a custom made wool flat weave carpet on the grand staircase of the three story brick colonial house we are doing the interior design for. The installer just completed this last week and it is a stunner if I do say so myself. The orange stripe offset into the more neutral brown and beige stripes draws your eye to the stairs and beckons you upward. The stripe relates to the dining room walls (off to the left of the foyer), which are upholstered in an orange glazed linen, and to the finish on the dining chairs in the kitchen beyond. Additional accents of the color will be forthcoming in the living room to the right of the foyer.
Here is the “before” shot – your basic beige (with the accent of a red vacuum):

And here are the “after” shots of the main flight of stairs, the landing and a shot from one of the upper levels down onto the landing:
