Tone on Tone: I chose a wool sisal style staircase runner with very narrow binding. It's installed about 3 inches from the sides (and cut out around the newel post) in the Hollywood style, which is tailored and bespoke. The big area rug is the same, but with a different binding. Larger area rugs do wonders for small spaces!
LOVE! Ahhh... Sisal! Seagrass! Natural fibres... would love to carpet our bedrooms in this, but think the budget might only stretch to a rug... perfect for allergy sufferers! Pity this company isn't in Bris :(
