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.
Rather tuck your kicks away? To create this solution at home you can use any kind of flat board. We’ve used a VEDDINGE kitchen cabinet door (use rounded deco strips or moulding to make the sides). Then all you need to do is attach some wheels to the bottom. Done! | Shoe storage under the bed ... could use this for any kind of storage under the couch too!
