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 :(
Beautiful living room features walls painted light khaki, Benjamin Moore Nantucket Breeze, framing sash windows dressed in woven shades on either side of an oak chest topped with a happiness jar table lamp below a gilt beveled mirror flanked by a pair of antique chairs. An English rolled arm sofa stands in front of the chest topped with a pair of green paisley pillows beside a green striped rolled arm chair on casters atop a bound sisal rug.
The lighting in the sitting room is from Jim Lawrence and John Lewis. The sofas and armchairs are from Multiyork, chosen by Carole as the covers are removable and washable, and the walls are painted in Muslin by The Little Greene Paint Co. The Clearview woodburner is from The Heating Centre in Gloucester and is finished in Honeyglow Brown. The sisal rug is from John Lewis
