This style home with the grand entrance hallways and the stairs being one of the first visual points just cry out for a carpet stair runner just like this one.  I love the strips, and the colours are gorgeous especially against the pale walls and on the real stained wood floor.  I also love how the photo gallery runs up the stairs, all of this just makes you want to explore further. Although if it was me I would have maybe thrown in a few coloured frames too.

Before and After. DIY Stairway Redesign. So easy. Step 1. Remove old carpet. (This is the hardest part, try not to get poked from the old tacks. Be careful!) Step 2. Paint steps. (You can do 1 color for easy, half the time painting, or alternate 2 colors on the rise and run. I alternated white and an espresso brown paint that matches my redone furniture. Regular interior paint will do as it's just the edges that aren't walked on.) Step 3. Staple on runners. (Shown is 3 runners from Target.)
